*OUR KENNELS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED TO VISITORS AND VOLUNTEERS*

** TRUSTEE STATEMENT** 23.9.20 – PLEASE READ

After so many successful homings last month, and due to the strange times we are now living in, we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation.
 
We are currently overwhelmed with applications and simply do not have the hounds to match the amount of applications we’ve received. If you have made an application up to yesterday’s date we will be in touch but from today we have to inform you that we are UNABLE TO ACCEPT ANY FURTHER HOMING APPLICATIONS. (The only exception to this would be from those applicants with previous hound experience who are in a position to take a hound that is difficult to rehome).
 
We hope to review the situation in a months’ time. Thank you for your understanding.
 
The Trustees
Makants Greyhound Rescue NW

Please note: WE ARE CURRENTLY UNABLE TO ACCEPT ANY FURTHER HOMING APPLICATIONS 

Adoption/fostering 

Thank you for considering rehoming one of our greyhounds.
We have some common sense guidelines which we apply to rehoming. However, we are flexible and are always open to discussion with regard to homing any of our greyhounds.
If you are unsure about any of the requirements, we are happy to discuss them with you. You are welcome to call Siobhan on 07960 561 988 or Sue on 07794 463 249.

Adoption/Fostering Requirements

• Due to the size of the greyhounds we prefer children in the household to be over 5 years of age
• Greyhounds must not be left home alone for extended periods of time, eg not more than 4 hours. If they are to be left for longer hours a dog walker or similar carer must be in place
• All resident dogs must be neutered.
• Prospective adopters/fosterers must have a secure garden with a fence of at least 5 foot high and lockable gate,   it must not be a shared garden
• Vaccinations must be kept up-to-date.
• A home check will always be carried out prior to adoption.
• A £130 homing donation will be required.
