WHY YOUR SPONSORSHIP IS SO IMPORTANT
The majority of the greyhounds that live in The Sanctuary did not arrive at our kennels with the specific desire to be there. Once they too had dreams of being a family pet. But they cannot help what they are and they do not choose to live their lives on medication. For some of them, they may yet know the delights of living in a real home with a real family. We’d like to think so.
In the meantime The Sanctuary is their home and we are their family. They are no less loved than our own pets at home. Many of our supporters and regular visitors sponsor these hounds and go out of their way to get to know them well and make them feel special. A real and very close bond grows as they get to know each other and it is a pleasure to witness their mutual delight when they meet.
And greyhounds, just to put your minds at rest, do live very happily at our kennels. In fact we have had some here that weren’t able to settle in a home environment and preferred that which was so familiar to them – the kennels. The structure and routine of kennel life to many of them is comforting. They know what to expect and when to expect it. They are not faced with a multitude of decisions or do’s and don’ts and behavioural issues which may have been difficult to manage in a home environment tend to virtually disappear over time.
By sponsoring a sanctuary hound you allow us to offer each and every one of our hounds a home in our Sanctuary should they ever need it. Because of this facility we are able to take in greyhounds that have been deemed ‘un-homeable’ by other rescues, knowing that if they truly are un-homeable then we can offer them the safety of The Sanctuary and give them a loving and caring home.
So here they are; Our sponsorship hounds. Each special, each individual, each deserving of the very best that we can give them; and that, for as long as they need it, is The Sanctuary.
