Sponsor a hound in need!

Often, the maltreatment of a dog means they cannot be re-homed. This is the case with the five hounds we’re helping to look after. But we need your help.

Rocio, Pandora, Apollo, Freya and Laura 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 £24 (£2 per month) 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!

Greyhound Compassion Sponsor A Hound - Rocio

Greyhound Compassion Sponsor A Hound – Rocio

Rocio is an elderly galgo saved from becoming a breeding machine producing galgo puppies for the coursing fraternity in Spain.

Rocio now shares the sofa with Laura 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.  Like Laura, Rocio has Leishmaniasis but her blood tests are good. Both Laura and Rocio have become the manager’s shadow.

Greyhound Compassion Sponsor A Hound - Pandora

Greyhound Compassion Sponsor A Hound – Pandora

Pandora is a lovely girl who was rescued from Ireland and 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.v

Greyhound Compassion Sponsor A Hound - Apollo

Greyhound Compassion Sponsor A Hound – Apollo

Apollo arrived in rescue with Pandora, they are the best of friends. 

Apollo is a blue and white brindle. He is very sweet and loving, though very strong to walk. Again, he also loves his food but Apollo being a boy is swayed by treats. Even though he is such a big lad he relies on Pandora. They have their own beds but often share one! He loves a cuddle!

Freya Lincolnshire

Shy Freya

Freya was rescued from greyhound racing in the UK. She suffered a terrible trauma which means she cannot be rehomed from the Lincolnshire shelter. 

Freya now lives a life of luxury and has come to trust her carers at the shelter. She plays happily with them but cannot face the rest of the world.

Lovable Laura


Laura is now an elderly lady who was rescued from a galgo collector in 2007.  She lives with Alcorza. 

Sadly, she suffers from the parasitical disease Leishmaniasis and has lost sight in one eye. But this doesn’t stop her competing for the sofa with Alcorza!
