We care for Greyhounds, Cats and even Horses!

                                        *(Please note - we currently do not re-home any greyhounds with cats)*


We are a charity now based in Boston, Lincolnshire and have spent over 35 years caring for and helping re-home this kind, gentle, affectionate and appreciative breed. We re-home all over the country. Please note that we used to be based in Selby, Yorkshire but we moved to Boston 10 years ago. We still do a lot of re-homing in Yorkshire as we are well known and respected there and throughout the rescue world.  

Our present address is:  Greyhound Rescue, Crimea Cottage, Sutterton Drove, Amber Hill, Boston, Lincolnshire, PE20 3RP

(Please Note our previous address for over 25 years was Greyhound Rescue, Derwent View, Brackenholme, Selby, YO8 6EL and we were also at Boundry Farm, York for about 18 month before moving here to Boston).

We have had people trying to find us, so our charity number is 702522 and chairperson is and has always been Karen Schultz, who is still here)!

Karen will always find the right dog for the right home and we pride ourselves in getting things right for both the greyhound and the owner. The welfare of the dogs is the most important thing to Karen, after all, that is why she went into rescue and she still works the same way she did 35 years ago, showing each and every greyhound that passes through her care the love and respect they deserve. Karen never forgets any of her dogs names and each time a call comes through of a loss from old age, it takes a piece of her heart too…. even after 35 years she is still as passionate and I have never met anyone who understands greyhounds like Karen. If you would like to adopt a greyhound, then you will be in good hands here. We like to stay in touch and be on hand with any help and advice we can give.

We have dogs for re-homing now, so please give us a call on 07811 296029 to have a chat. Linda, Ben & Billy are desperate to find their forever home - please have at look on dogs for adoption - 02.06.2018

Update On Quina

Quina is one of the horses at the rescue that belongs personally to Karen and is not one of the rescue animals but just shows that no matter what - nothing is straight forward. Luck never seems to be on our side......Update on Quina - she is fighting the biggest battle of her life....and so is Karen. This is heartbreaking. 02.06.2018

Quina passed away on 6th October 2018. Life will never be the same.
