*The rescue is now in its 11th year*

*Will YOU help us ?**

It’s hard to believe that Makants was founded by Siobhan with the first intake being just one dog and one slip lead, some 10 years ago!  The past 10 years certainly haven’t always been easy – what with COVID and  the economic  downturn – but we have, with your help, remained resilient and over those years have been able to help over 640 ex racing greyhounds into loving homes. In these uncertain times we are always so grateful for any donations that come our way.

To ensure we can continue to help even more greyhounds into homes in the future, would you consider making a donation via PayPal ?


  • £10.00 could pay for a new lead  for one of our greyhounds
  • £20.00 could pay for a new collar for one of our greyhounds
  • £40.00 could pay for flea and worming treatment for one month for one of our greyhounds
  • £50.00 could pay for a walking out coat and fleece, keeping a greyhound cosy
  • £200.00 could pay our neutering costs for one greyhound


Our volunteer Dave has a flourising shop on Ebay selling items to raise funds for the rescue. Maybe you will find something of interest on there? The link to his shop is:


Our Trustee Jo has a successful shop on VINTED, raising funds for the rescue from donated good quality items, the link is:



We also have kennel sponsorships  available, more details here:https://makants.uk/kennel-sponsorship-2/


With your help  we can continue to find loving homes for many more ex racing greyhounds.

Thank you for your continued support.

At Makants we aim to help any greyhound in need. Founded by Siobhan Hoppley in 2013, Makants Greyhound Rescue, a registered charity, is based in Tyldesley, Greater Manchester. To date we have found forever homes for just over 640 greyhounds. The charity’s aim is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome retired and injured greyhounds but we also help find homes for greyhounds from individuals who can no longer provide the love and care they require.

Makants Greyhound Rescue is based at:

Makants Farm, Mort Lane, Tyldesley, M29 8PF
