Homeless Hounds is a Registered Charity managed by Committee on a totally voluntary basis. We have a policy that every dog coming into our rescue is treated with love and respect and given the utmost care.
Stray and abandoned dogs that are picked up by the dog warden, only have their kennel fees paid for 7 days. If they are not claimed by their owners in this time, there is no one to pay for their boarding. Many of these dogs are destroyed every day because no one wants them, no one wants to pay for them and the kennels need the room for the many more dogs coming in daily.
Homeless Hounds are a group of dedicated people who believe that the unnecessary destruction of healthy dogs is both immoral and unacceptable. Our work is funded by people's kind donations and our own fundraising events. Our trustees are unpaid and do not receive any expenses, so every penny goes towards saving dogs lives.
We work primarily with a kennels in the North West to save the lives of stray and abandoned dogs by finding them places of safety and transporting them there.
We work closely with rescues across the country who take our dogs when they have space and we have a dedicated team of foster families who look after dogs when a space for them can't be found. Once a space is found we use kind volunteers to help us transport these dogs to safety.
Often abandoned dogs are ill or injured and we need to care for them until they are well enough to move on. Vets fees and caring for these dogs cost a lot of money so we are always looking for people to help with our fundraising because without funds we cannot save these dogs lives.
Buttercup came in the care of Homeless Hounds after being picked up as a stray. Whilst out straying it is thought she was hit by a car as she came in with broken toes and cuts and bruises.
Poor Buttercup has not had much luck up until now as when she came to us not only had she been hit by a car but she was covered in matted fur which had been like that for some time.
In spite all of this she is a very sweet natured girl who is currently in foster with children and another dog. Please click here to read more about her.
SPOTLIGHT ON: JASMINE
Jasmine came in to our care over 8 months ago. Prior to coming to us Jasmine did not have much love, attention or structure in her life.
She has now been in foster for several months and has come on in leaps and bounds, revealing the happy little dog she is today. Jasmine needs a loving home where she can receive the attention and training she needs to flourish further.
Jasmine has been with us for far too long and is desperate for a home of her own. Please click here to read more about this beautiful girl. If you can't adopt, please spread the word so we can find Jasmine the home she should have started with.
