Who are we?
Our aim is to rescue as many greyhounds and lurchers as we possibly can. They make absolutely wonderful pets. They are loyal, gentle, loving couch potatoes. Here is a leaflet on why they make great pets. You can also read the information on the page of the same name above.
There a few misconception about these fabulous dogs we would like to dispel:
- They don’t need lots of exercise. Two 20 minutes walks a day is enough. However, they do appreciate longer walks so they can have a good sniff.
- They can live with cats. Just as with any breed of dog, some greyhounds like them, some don’t.
- They are very good with children. Most are calm and patient and love the attention. Like any dog though, they should be supervised when around young children.
We are a non-profit organisation that relies solely on public donations and the support of our volunteers. Here is a leaflet on our work and how you can help. We don't have our own kennels so we rely heavily on foster families and private boarding kennels to house our dogs until they find their forever homes. We organise a number of events throughout the year and have regular meet and greets, which are great social events.
All our dogs come spayed, vet checked, and vaccinated for a set adoption donation. We gladly offer continued advise and support once they have been re-homed. We will consider most family situations as potential homes and do a home check before we let a dog go out on trial. We then go through the adoption once you and the dog are completely happy. This process is out lined on our adoption page, please take time to read through it.
Please take a look around the website and get in touch if you have any questions.
On this page you will find comments and advice from greyhound and lurcher owners, who once like you, were considering which dog to adopt and what breed. They decided on a greyhound. Below you will read of the reasons why and also some advise about what to expect when you bring your first hound home.
Greyhounds As Pets
Congratulations on considering a greyhound or adopting your first greyhound! The information below is just some basic advice about your possible new friend. We will explain what you can expect in the first few days and weeks to follow and provide you with links and book recommendations to help make the process much smoother.
