Dogs Needing Rehoming
Firstly, I must stress that this is not officially the business for which
LURCHER SEARCH UK was originally started... we are here to try and find the
owners of lost or stolen dogs. However, people DO get in touch with us either
with a view to rehoming a lurcher or because they want to give up a lurcher.
Because of this, we have started up an organisation called "Lurcher Link"
which will act as a point of contact for rescues, dog wardens, vets, stray
centres and the public.
Many Lurchers are destroyed each week because stray pounds are full and
local rescues have no room to take any in. Yet in other parts of the country
people are looking for Lurchers to rehome. Some of the dogs being destroyed are
probably stolen ones, taken out of their area and dumped hundreds of miles away.
Their owners are still searching for them, but if they aren't microchipped or
tattooed, they will probably be unsuccessful.
Our aim is to act as a kind of "Dating Agency" for Lurchers, trying to find
the right dog for the right family, from ANY rescue, to make space for other
Lurchers to come into rescue and to save these dogs from being pts. We will
also act as advisors to people who are newcomers to Lurchers, have behavioural
problems with their dogs or just need someone to discuss problems with.
You can find Lurcher Link at:
www.lurcher.org until the website
is finished. Alternatively, you can email Kaye
and I will take details of dogs from you.
