I've always been an animal lover.

So it's with great happiness that I'm going to Skydive for Great Hounds in Need.

Here's their history. . .

Who are Great Hounds in Need?

We are a team of hound lovers and our beloved hounds are an important part of our lives. Due to the joy they give us we decided to form a group to help and to rescue other unwanted hounds.

Now we are working hard to change that hope into a reality for the other great hounds in Ireland.

That is how we became a greyhounds and lurchers rescue and rehoming group.

Our organization was established in Ireland and it is unwanted greyhounds and lurchers in Ireland we focus on to rescue and rehabilitate and search out and find new homes for.

Our team are people in Ireland and on continental Europe working together.

Among the rescue and rehoming work our aim is to show people what great pets they make, what amazing creatures they are.

We do this by educating people to understand them and how to live with them.

We continue to support our families in the post-adoption period.

All our homes are subject to homechecks to determine suitability prior to adoption and we stay in constant touch with the adopters after they have taken ownership of their new pets, supporting and encouraging them, but also ensuring that the hounds are happy and secure and loved in their new homes.

All our adult hounds are neutered prior to adoption, every dog is microchipped and vaccinated, those going to homes in continental Europe are also rabied and carry an EU-pet passport.

January 2nd 2012

10 ex-racing greyhounds were surrended by two trainers to the dog pound in Kerry. Rescue people managed to bring them to safety.


We took one of these greyhounds to our care. His foster mum named him Conan. He suffered head shaking and wobbling .

Veterinarian opinion: trauma, he got hit or had been hit into his head.

Our foster home witnesses:
"I am in no doubt that he has been hit. I was playing with all of the hounds the other day and I caught hold of his nose very gently like I do with mine and he freaked and hid. I felt awful and went to him and cuddled him and he was fine after but it was an instinctive reaction he had. I am taking it very gently with him so as not to set anything off neurologically as he is starting to settle."

After two months in foster care:
"He is really nervous of anyone and will not go near them apart from me. I have tried to gently socialize him if someone visits, but he really doesnt want to know... and he just hides on his bed or somewhere away
and his tail is tucked right under. He is obviously ok with me and is used to my kids but is very distrustful and scared of anyone else."

Conan´s details are:
racing name: Hardy Man
earmarks: KL SIT, fawn dog, born: 8.1.2010

Who will be responsible? We did report this cause and never received any outcome.
Will his owner be able to have other greyhounds in "care"?
