Action for Sighthound Adoption and Protection has been set up to help sighthound rescues in the UK and Ireland.

We found that it can be difficult to locate nearby sighthound rescues when searching for a hound to adopt. We hope that our “Hound Map” will make it easier for potential adoptants to find their local rescue centre, and for rescues to advertise their dogs.

Our monthly “Around the Hounds” section gives every rescue the opportunity to advertise their “dog of the month”, such as those that have been waiting for their forever homes for some time, or those that need a more specific home than most.

We also have a “Golden Oldies” section for older sighthounds needing homes.

Our new project which we want to get off the ground is our “Highways to Heaven” project. This aims to provide funding for sighthounds travelling from Northern Ireland and Ireland into rescue centres or homes in the UK. We hope to help these “Highway Hounds” by providing funding towards travel costs and for collars and leads for their journey.

Our news sections will keep you up to date on sighthound welfare issues, sighthound events and urgent appeals.

Action for Sighthound Adoption and Protection is a totally non-profit making organisation and in the future hopes to become a registered charity.
