A message from the Chair

Jan Lake, Chair of Trustees

Twenty years ago, on July 9th 1996, Forever Hounds Trust became a registered charity. Since then we have found loving forever homes for over 8,000 hounds, and all of our birthday events across the country are a celebration of all of those happy homings! We would like say a huge THANK YOU to all of our brilliant volunteers and supporters – without you none of this would have been possible. We hope you and your dogs enjoy the celebrations!

This is also a time of change, as we launch our brand new name. We are absolutely still the same charity at heart, but it is time for change, and we are looking forward to forging a new chapter in our history to enable us to help even more wonderful dogs. We have exciting plans to take our new name to a new, wider audience, telling more people about how wonderful sighthounds are, and how no home is complete without one – or two – or several! Read more about this change here.

We hope that you will raise a glass, don a party hat and celebrate 20 amazing years – thank you for all of your support, and here’s to a many more happy hounds in forever homes.

With very best wishes,


Jan Lake, Chair of Trustees, July 2016
