Our aim:

Lurcher Link is a voluntary organisation whose aim is to try and save Lurchers' lives by liaising between rescues, stray pounds and members of the public.

Many Lurchers are destroyed each week because the stray pounds are full and their local rescues have no room for any more dogs. Yet in other parts of the country, people are looking for Lurchers to rehome.

We wish to rectify this situation by being a point of contact for all rescues, the public and stray centres.

How is this accomplished

Basically by word of mouth - we have an on-line forum which features dogs needing homes and homes offered and we try to match people with dogs - like an on-line dating agency for Lurchers!

Please check out the dogs currently needing homes Dogs needing homes
 All rescues are welcome to contact us and register the details of their Lurchers needing homes and potential adopters can read the dogs' descriptions, look at the photos and, if they are interested, find out more about that particular dog. We try to provide facilities for home checks, transport and advice if needed.

We are also creating a Happy Endings page for dogs rehomed through Lurcher Link
