Help us give a loving home to stray and abandoned animals

We have known Rosemary and Phil for many years here at Otterspool; they have owned and loved many dogs. When we received an email from them asking what greyhounds we had for re-homing we were more than confident that Ros was just the girl for them. We took Ros along to meet her prospective parents and to do her own home check. Though Ros had spent her life in kennels she was perfectly clean in their home and soon started to form a bond with them. After a few visits her adoption date was planned, once all the paperwork had been completed Ros celebrated by jumping on the dining room table! A habit that will obviously have to be addressed but no dog is perfect!

Five years ago we were over the moon to find a home for one of our model greyhounds; Dinger. Unfortunately due to his mum’s ill health Dinger has been returned to us. Happily we are pleased to say that Louise and her family have offered Dinger a home. The family have recently had to say goodbye to their other greyhound due to ill health. Louise has had a lot of experience with the breed over the years and we are sure that she won’t have any problems with Dinger.

Due to his age and good track record (in a home) Dinger jumped ahead of some of the greyhounds waiting for a home.

We have appealed many times for a home for Blitz, this must be a quiet understanding home where she can be left to come round at her own pace. It would really be ideal for her to be re-homed with her friend Buster who helps her confidence to bloom. However we must be realistic as we know how expensive it can be these days to care for a pet.

We ask a minimum donation of £100 for our dogs, this includes vaccinations, neutering and micro chipping. As part of our re-homing procedure we make sure that they are 100% fit to go off to their new home. They are all vet checked before they leave us and we give a month's free insurance with Petplan. We strongly recommend that new owners take out their own insurance after the month is over. Vet bills these days can soon run into thousands of pounds, it is always a worry when your beloved pet is ill. At least if you have insurance you know that whatever they need can be afforded.

We do our very best to make sure that both the pets we re-home and their new owners are happy with the work
we do.
