Dogs welcome, large or small, one or more. A Greyhound haven!

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.

Please ring for an appointment to come and see the greyhounds and have a chat. You are most welcome, but as we run a bed and breakfast it is essential you ring and arrange a date and time to visit.

Become a friend and view Our Profile to see what's happening at the branch and to follow some of our ex-foster greyhounds.

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.

Molly's arrival and a brief history

Black Greyhound
Molly is a black ex-racing greyhound who was born in 2009. She has been in a house before and is microchipped. She was due to be spayed when she arrived, but came into season the morning after her arrival. Consequently she took a trip to the vets to be suppressed and will be spayed in the middle of June. If Molly has been re-homed by then she can either come to our vets to have her operation or we can arrange to get it done at her new owner's vet.
Molly is a happy, friendly girl who walks okay on the lead, and travels well in the car, but as yet we are not sure what she is like with other breeds of dogs.

Went to her new home on Sunday 27th April 2014
Molly's Diary
* The branch kennel at the bottom of our garden is where Molly and the other resident(s) will be for the first day or so until she gets to know the other greyhounds. She has use of our garden and paddock, and once she gets to know the other dogs she will be allowed in the house during the day and all the dogs will then take it in turn to sleep in the house at night, so they become use to sleeping in both the kennel and the house.

9th March 2014

26th March 2014
Molly and Aero came in the house for the day today and didn't want to go back in the kennel this evening.
28th March 2014
This morning Molly took a trip to the vet for her second inoculation, which now brings them up to date.
13th April 2014
Now that Aero has been re-homed Molly has moved from the kennel into the house. She will really miss Aero so being in the house with us all will help her through the stage of being without him.
27th April 2014
This lunch time the couple interested in adopting Molly called in to complete the paperwork and take her home with them. She was a little quiet at first, but then that is Molly. Some cuddles and much attention and she was soon looking happier and coming out of her shell.
When it was time to leave she attempted to jump in the back of their car, but needed a helping hand with the back being rather high and not a great deal of space to stop before the back seat. Once in she soon settled and lay down ready for the journey home.
Molly is a lovely girl and we wish her a long and happy life in her new home.
3rd May 2014
Molly was due to be speyed round about now, but her new owner thought she had come into season again. This morning they took her to the vet for confirmation of this, and because she was, they asked advice on when it would be safe to spey her.
8th May 2014
Molly's owner was going to take her with him to work today, but because she came in season again he asked if we could look after her for the day. She arrived first thing and he called to collect her round about 5.30pm.There wasn't any bleeding as such and the others didn't overly pester her. When her owner arrived back he had also noticed the same yesterday afternoon. On reflection both 'seasons' have arisen when she's moved to a new home, first ours, then her new owners, so it may well be the changes that has brought them on. The vet suggested she be speyed 3 months from now and this is being arranged.
Molly, when she arrived she knew where she was and happily mixed with the other dogs, she was no problem at all and just settled in. She gave her new owner a lovely greeting when he arrived to collect her and she happily walked off with him to go home.
25th January 2015
We received an email today letting us know that Molly was well and attaching a photograph of her playing ball in the garden.
2nd February 2015
This morning Molly and her owner arrived to collect Jess who she remembered from when they visited her at her fosterers and gave them both a lovely welcome. Jess is being adopted by the mother of Molly's owner and because they were going to stay with her for a week he called in to collect Jess for her.
Molly looked well and happy, came in, said hello to our greyhounds and made herself at home. It was lovely to see her again and she certainly knew where she was.
