All our dogs are placed in warm and loving foster homes where they are carefully assessed and, if needed, rehabilitated.  All Hounds First rescue dogs are neutered where possible and given full veterinary treatment, microchipped and vaccinated wormed and deflead before going to their new homes.

I went out to rescue a lurcher that day

To give him a really good life To take him away from the life that he led And free him from trouble and strife

I thought I would do him a favour And be a good person to him And go do my bit for the country I didn’t go out on a whim

But what do you think really did happen? The day that I did my good deed, I discovered a love that I’d dreamed of And fulfilled in myself a strong need.

I now have a lurcher that I care for, I see things that I needed to see. That lovely lurcher that I rescued Really ended up rescuing me
