Trailhounds looking for loving homes
- November 30, 2023
Below are some of the trailhounds currently available for adoption (we may have more that have not yet made it to the website). As we work closely with the racing owners to help find suitable retirement homes, we are able to supply a full history of each hound, e.g whether they have lived with children, cats, other dogs etc. We take in around 40 to 50 hounds a year; many we home ourselves and some go to reputable rehoming centres throughout the country. Hounds are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. We usually visit you in your home so that we can answer any questions fully. There is a £120 adoption donation. We offer 1 month free insurance with PETPLAN Insurance. If you are new to trailhounds, please carefully read our FAQ and training page to be sure that a trailhound is the right breed for you.

INTERESTED IN ADOPTING? – Contact us and we will send you a pre adoption form. Once we know what you are looking for, we can see if we have a match.
If you are interested in a hound listed below that is in another rehoming centre, contact the centre directly to register interest – their own homing criteria will apply.
HOUND TRAILERS – Please ring Sue or Barbara if you have a hound you wish to rehome.
We can offer the following options:
* We can find a home privately for your hound (either with it staying with you until adopted OR for it to come into our care until adopted).
* We can send your hound to a trusted external rehoming centre, in which case they take over sole responsibility for it. We have been lucky to be supported by these centres for many years, and they find fantastic homes.
* If you decide to find a retirement home yourselves without our input, we are still happy to pay for neutering, and to assist with home checks, if you require it.
* If you have a hound that needs to come in urgently, we are always happy to try and help without a long wait.
* If you have a hound with a racing injury, please get in touch. We have previously found great homes for hounds, including amputees, once we have had their vet work done. We are happy to cover vet costs.
PLEASE RING US FOR A CHAT.

Sasha aged 6 months
- November 19, 2023
30/11/2023 We have had a number of enquiries for Sasha and she is going on a home trial very soon.
We have just taken in a very sweet 6 month old trailhound called Sasha. She is a wee little thing so may be perfect for someone looking for a smaller hound. We are preferably looking for someone who has, (or previously has had a trailhound), and is known to us as Sasha is currently too young to be speyed. It will need to be done in around 6 to 9 months (at our cost). Due to her young age, Sasha will need plenty of input and time spend with her. She gets on with dogs and may benefit from a big brother or sister to show her the ropes. Sasha has met a cat and was quite happy around it.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
Check out Sasha on our Instagram page HERE
