If any hound trailers are considering sending their retired hounds in for rehoming this year, please remember that some of the homing centres we work with, close their doors to new intakes in early December as the Christmas period is quite hectic and not the best time for a new family to adopt a pet, so if you are planning to send a hound to us, please get in touch asap. Feel free to speak to Barbara Leopold or ring Sue on 01697 478383. Thank you.

 

Notice to members – the Executive Committee has amended Rule 54.6 to include the words “and shows that include hounds from local packs” after “agricultural and horticultural shows” (i.e. all these shows may charge full admission, but entries shall be free, with no charge for cars containing running hounds.)
