Hounds First Sighthound Rescue Hounds First Sighthound Rescue (Registered Charity 1152540) rescues and rehomes sighthounds across the UK, including lurchers, greyhounds, whippets and salukis as well as other types of sighthound.
The rescue was founded in January 2013 and gained charity status in June 2013.
Most of our dogs are placed in warm and loving foster homes where they are carefully assessed and, if needed, rehabilitated before rehoming, however we do also rent a few kennels for our dogs that have complex behavioural needs and are not yet ready to move into a foster home. All Hounds First rescue dogs have a full assessment and health check and are given any required veterinary treatment, neutered if old enough, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and flea treated before going to their new homes.
Hounds First is a rescue who are against training methods that inflict pain and distress on dogs. We use and promote science based positive force free dog training principles.
