Occasionally we will get a hound or two that we deem as "Special Needs". This may be for several different reasons. The hound may have a thyroid problem, have seizures, be a rescue who came to us malnourished, was rescued or returned at an older age or perhaps is a shy hound, known as an "extreme spook". Whatever their case may be, they are often overlooked due to additional needs or because of their "senior" status but these hounds are the most special in our hearts. Here we must put a side note.
*The majority of our hounds here are NOT RESCUES!* *They are RETIRED RACING GREYHOUNDS!*
We do have several more hounds available than what is listed here. Please feel free to contact us with the type of hound you're looking for.
Want To Help One Of Our Special Needs Hounds?
Sometimes our special needs hounds come with some really special needs at the vet clinic too, which means that contributions are highly appreciated to help out with the costs. A rescue hound who comes in malnourished might need a full panel blood work, IV fluids for a few days, special diet, medicines, additional tests, medical care at the vet clinic and possibly more. These can all add up really quickly. One heart worm treatment alone exceeds the adoption fee. Your generous contributions are a GREYT help! Please consider contributing today!
