We have an extensive waiting list but each whippet is rehomed to the home most suitable for that particular dog We cannot guarantee that a suitable dog will be available for you immediately. We will keep all forms on file for a year, but kindly ask that you telephone us to let us know you want to remain on the adoption list before the year has finished. Also we ask that you telephone if your situation changes or you no longer want a whippet from the rescue.
