All 6 hounds live in homes with their forever families, while we continue to support all of their medical needs.

Please continue reading to find out more information about the dogs that need your help.

This gorgeous girl came in to us here at the kennels for homing just like any other hound. During the first couple of weeks, we noticed an increased intake of water which resulted in excessive urination. She was taken to the vets and diagnosed with a water infection and prescribed antibiotics. This cycle repeated again before we requested a blood test, which showed kidney failure. She has to stay on a renal diet for the rest of her life as well as having regular check ups at the vets. She is a happy girl who has a great life at home with kennel team member Chloe, her partner Dan and their four guinea pigs.

This very special girl came to us for homing, but in the days following her neutering she started to become unwell. She was off her food, very lethergic, drinking a lot and urinating more than normal. She went straight to the vets where they did blood tests and checked a urine sample. She was soon diagnosed with stage 4 kidney failure. Our vets were determined to help her get better and put her straight onto a drip, which is where she spent every day for the next 10 days. She started to show signs of improvement and slowly got better each day, and is now at stage 1 kidney failure. She is now on a renal diet and will be for the rest of her life, with regular check ups at the vets. She lives happily with Nici and her other hound Holly, who is also one of our supported hounds.


This black beauty came into us with a badly broken hock so we continue to support any ongoing medical costs this problem brings him, such as pain relief and regular check ups at the vets. He lives with the Smith family and his hound brother Frankie. 


Pretty little Holly came to us for homing and shortly after her arrival, she developed a thyroid condition which she will have for the rest of her life. This can be managed with lifelong prescribed medication which we are able to provide her with thanks to your donations. She has to have regular visits to to the vets for blood tests to ensure the medication dosgae is still correct and that she is in overall good health. She lives with the Bartells family and another hound for company.  


This handsome boy came to us with a serious hip problem, which we swiftly dealt with. After having major surgery at West Midlands Referals, he is now fully recovered. He required physiotherapy and hydrotherapy to help him regain full use of his hip and leg. He will have lifelong orthopedic needs and be under veterinary care his whole life. He is such a happy boy who wags his tail constantly, who came such a long way during his time with us. He is now living happily with our volunteer Phil and his other three hounds Ollie, Katie and Rosie. 


Handsome King came to us like any other hound for homing, but during his time with us he developed a problem with his immune system. After lots of visits to the vets, we managed to get him him on the correct meds and right dosage which he will need for the rest of his life. He also requires a supplement to help him live a full and healthy life. He has landed on his paws and now lives with Josh and Lucy, where he loves to spend his days chilling out on the sofa.
