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
Sponsored Walk - In Memory Of Freya - 12th August 2018 At Woodall Spa Meeting at 1pm
Please Come and join us on our sponsored walk in memory of our beautiful sponsor dog Freya who we lost so suddenly,
Freya raised such a lot of funds for the recuse in her life here for all her friends and her life was cut short with a sudden illness.
She was such a popular girl and loved everyone who walked through the doors! I don't think I have known one person who didn't want to take Freya home! Unfortunately, she wasn't a dog that could be re-homed although we did try. And her adopted owners who did try and try with her, and who were devasted when she had to come back here, are coming on the walk with us. They always loved Freya. They will be there with Chalky and Xena and I am sure it will be a difficult one for them too.
This walk we are hoping to do each year as Freya was imported in the face of the rescue as was Duke. We would also like this to be a walk to remember all the ones we have all lost and let them all know this is their day.
So come on and join us - it is a sponsored walk but if you cannot get sponsors - that is ok - we have a charity tin there on the day - we can just get people to drop a donation in! Let her Legacy live on.
See our news & blog/articles page for details of how to get there and map etc.
Sponsors forms available on request and can be emailed.
See you there. Greyhound Rescue Contact number - 07811 296029
