Del Bedouin epic fundraiser!
- July 29, 2019
Trailie owner and supporter Del Bedouin raised a staggering £905 for Trailhound Welfare in July when he took part in the Montane Lakeland 100 race. The race covered 100 miles of difficult fell terrain in awful weather conditions and Del achieved an impressive 60 miles before a knee injury forced him to retire.
THANK YOU also to all our awesome supporters who generously sponsored Del. Here are just a few of over 30 hounds that we have helped this year to find lovely retirement homes.
Helen and her hounds raised £1025.11!
- October 23, 2018
A HUGE THANK YOU TO LTW supporter Helen Warrington who undertook the gruelling Ullswater Challenge on 21st October, which involved running 24 miles with her fab trailie companions, Ace and Tarn. This was no easy jog – it involved running up and down fells in a variety of weather including driving, horizontal rain and sunshine with rainbows. With YOUR support sponsoring her, Helen raised an amazing £1025.11.
We would also like to thank Tina Airey and the HTA for collecting £200.11 of the final total on the same day in support of Helen, at the Helton Hound Trails which were held just over the fell from Ullswater.
As of the date of writing this (23/10/2018), Trailhound Welfare has helped 47 trailhounds in 2018. We have privately homed 21 hounds, sent 24 to trusted rehoming centres all over the country and have 2 hounds in long term foster homes. So the support from yourselves and Helen is very much appreciated. Here are a few photos from Helen’s epic run, plus a picture showing just a few of the hounds we have helped this and last year.

Thank you to the BHTA – £325.55 raised for LTW
- October 7, 2018
Many thanks to the Borders Hound Trailing Association and their supporters for their kind donation of £325.55 raised on the Sandale trails on 7th October 2018. The weather was atrocious with rain and strong winds but that didn’t stop anyone enjoying themselves. Visiting retired BHTA hound Ellie met up with old friends then high tailed it back to her snug duvet in the car with her companion Bailey!

THANK YOU for your support for Laddie
- July 20, 2017
Laddie is a lovely 10 year old hound who came into Trailhound Welfare in December 2016, for rehoming. Older hounds can take a bit longer to be adopted and he has been in a foster home while he waits. In July 2017, Laddie had to have his spleen removed as lesions were detected on it. They turned out to be non cancerous and Laddie is fighting fit again. We put out an appeal on Facebook for donations towards his vet bills which were over £800. We were blown away by all the support and raised an amazing £930 in just over a week. The BHTA (Border Hound Trailing Association, which is where Laddie raced for 8 years) raised £260 of the total. We are so grateful to everyone who helped us to cover the costs. If you would like to know more about Laddie, visit our rehoming page.
Weekend fun in Cumbria
- June 25, 2017
On 10th/11th June we had a fun weekend in Cumbria. Braving the wet weather 16 hounds with their owners came to watch a hound trail in the beautiful fells near Keswick. We had a fun show with the Best in Show title going to Paula Ball with Heidi. Thank you to the Keswick area HTA and to Victor Brownlee for judging the show. Thank you also to Bill Huddart for kindly donating a cheque to LTW for £30. On the Sunday a small group with their hounds went for a lovely walk around Buttermere.
We unveiled our new banner at the show. Lakeland Trailhound Welfare (formerly Trailhound Trust) has been homing hounds since 1997 so this year we asked you for your photos to put on a commemorative banner. We went big! The eye catching banner is 3m x 1.2m and we got over 120 hounds on it. We have homed over 1500 hounds since our inception and interest in the breed is ever widening. The banner will be used at various fundraising events. Click on the photo to enlarge.
Vinnie trailhound donates blood to save a life!
- March 8, 2017
Vinnie trailhound came to the rescue of a sick dog who was in desperate need of a blood transfusion. He answered the call of help from his vet Jon Slattery at Best Friends Veterinary Surgery, in Worcester Road, Malvern Link.
Mr Slattery had a very ill patient in dire need of a blood transfusion to save her life and called upon Worcestershire Animal Rescue Shelter to ask for help. He knew Vinnie was in excellent health and fulfilled donor criteria to be able to urgently donate blood to help his fellow dog.
Vinnie got an extra treat and has now been happily rehomed. FULL STORY
