The voluntary work Jenny and Stuart started in July 2004 is a memorial to their darling Penny. Without her coming into their lives none of this would have happened.

ADOPTING A GREYHOUND

When adopting a greyhound the suggested donation is £150.00 which goes towards neutering, inoculations, upkeep etc. Some people give a little less, while
others want to give more. We are quite flexible with this, and with this we provide:
Martingale Collar, Lead, Muzzle and 4 weeks free cover with the insurance company PetPlan

CAN YOU TEMPORARILY FOSTER A GREYHOUND FOR US?
Fosterers are a valuable part of greyhound rescue in that another greyhound is living life away from the kennels and taking the first steps towards getting used to the family way of life. If you live in the South Lakes or the surrounding area and would like to foster a greyhound until we can find him or her a new home.
please contact Jenny or Stuart
T: 015395 52394 or email us for more information

The dog is a saint. He is straightforward and honest by nature. He knows by instint when he is not wanted; lies quite still for hours when his king is hard at work.

Let us go for a walk and forget all about it!' . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Axel Munthe

I take the liberty of confiding to your charity and humanity ....Max, who is the best and gentlest and most reasonable and well-mannered, as well as most beautiful small animal of his kind ... I shall take it kindly if he be not too often gratified with tidbits at meals. Of course what he most intensely dreams of is being taken out on walks, and the more you are able to indulge him the more he will adore you and the more all the latent beauty of his nature will come out. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Henry James

It maybe by some garden gate.
With eyes alert and tail attent -
You know the kind of tail that's meant -
With stores of yelps of glad delight
To bid me welcome home at night. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Jokes

Question: How many greyhounds does it take to change a light bulb?

Reply: A lot, because its not food and it isn't moving, so they will stay on the settee, if that's okay.

A man going into a small shop sees a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Dog'. Going inside a bit cautiously, he sees a greyhound asleep in the middle of the floor. "Hi" he says to the shopkeeper, "is that the dog you're warning about?"
"Yes, that's him alright" says the shopkeeper.
"Well, he doesn't look very dangerous does he?" replies the man. "Why do you have the sign up?"
"Before I put that sign up" said the shopkeeper, "people kept tripping over him".
