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, Jack, 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.
Jack was rescued from greyhound racing in the UK. He may have been a “BAGS” dog – one of those poor greyhounds racing frequently at empty dog tracks so that greyhound racing can be streamed 24/7 to high street betting shops or bookmakers around the world.
Jack is a sweetie but needs rehabilitation before he is ready for a home. He has problems gaining weight and has severe baldness on this thighs. This stems from the stress of racing and kennel life. Probably his bedding was paper and sparse on a hard surface, and once wet became coarse for his skin. Now in safe hands, he will respond well to his care programme which includes special food, medication and hands on therapy.
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.
