We aim to help any greyhound in need

Founded by Siobhan Hoppley; Makants Greyhound Rescue is based in Tyldesley, Greater Manchester. We primarily rehome retired racing greyhounds from all over the country, but we also help find homes for greyhounds from individuals who can no longer provide the love and care they require.

All of our dogs are assessed, neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped prior to rehoming. We rely on the kindness and generosity of others.

If you wish to help us in any way please check out our help us page or join us at one of our fundraising events. If you want to see who needs a forever home please visit dogs looking for homes, or visit our adoption page to register your interest.
