Hounds first sighthound rescue; Lurchers, Whippets, Greyhounds,. Salukis and more!

Hounds First Sighthound Rescue (Registered Charity 1152540) rescues and rehomes sighthounds including Lurchers, Greyhounds, Whippets and Salukis as well as other types of sighthound across the UK.

Most of our dogs are placed in warm and loving foster homes where they are carefully assessed and, if needed, rehabilitated before rehoming, however we do also rent a few kennels for our dogs that have complex behavioural needs and are not yet ready to move into a foster home.

All Hounds First rescue dogs have a full assessment and health check and are given any required veterinary treatment, neutered (if old enough), microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated before going to their new homes. We also have dogs in permanent foster who are either too old, or have complex health issues so cannot be rehomed.

Sadly lurchers are one of the most abandoned and abused types of dogs in the UK at the moment, and we are being contacted on a daily basis by pound pullers asking us to take lurchers into our care. As a result we are always struggling for space and funds, so your help is needed!
