Often, the maltreatment of a dog means they cannot be re-homed. This is the case with some of the hounds we’re helping to look after. But we need your help.
Rocio, Neron, Freya, Pandora and Apollo all need special care and attention while they live out their lives in the shelters that rescued them – Scooby Medina and Lincolnshire Greyhound Rescue.
Please support them through our Sponsor a Hound Scheme.
For just £2 a month or £24 a year you can sponsor a hound that desperately needs your help. In return, you’ll receive a certificate, an annual update on their progress, plus a couple of little surprises during the year. A Sponsored Hound makes an ideal Christmas or birthday present for animal lovers!

Rocio is an elderly galgo saved from becoming a breeding machine producing galgo puppies for the coursing fraternity in Spain.
Rocio lives on the sofa in the conservatory cum sun lounge of the Scooby manager’s bungalow at the shelter. Rocio was very frightened and fragile when rescued. She is quite slight and was very skinny when she first came to Scooby. Rocio has Leishmaniasis but her blood tests are good. Rocio has become the manager’s shadow.
Freya was rescued from greyhound racing in the UK. She suffered a terrible trauma in her racing life. Very sadly she passed away in peace the day before yesterday.
Freya lived a life of luxury and trusted nobody but her carers at the shelter. Understandably they are devastated at her passing. She will have a sponsor successor but in the meantime, we’re leaving her picture up as a tribute. Hopefully the days of the racing industry are numbered and fewer greyhounds will suffer in the way Freya did before Greyhound Rescue saved her.
Pandora is a lovely girl who has been in rescue for a few years.
Pandora is extremely strong. She is a pretty girl who enjoys her food but likes a kiss on the head before eating! If you forget to kiss her, then you will find she forgets to eat! She needs someone very experienced to take on such a strong girl. She feels safe in the kennels and needs to be rehomed with her kennel mate, Apollo, who is even bigger. It is taking some finding but it would be too much for both of them to split them up.
