Greyhound IconWelcome to our website

We exist to rescue and rehome ex-racing and ex-coursing greyhounds. There will always be a constant stream of greyhounds who need a home and if you look in our Homeless gallery you'll see our latest arrivals.

Greyhounds are gentle and loyal pets. Unlike the popular misconception, greyhounds are laid back and lazy, and need little exercise. They adapt quickly to family life and they love nothing better than a cuddle.

If you think you could give a greyhound a permanent and loving home, or foster a greyhound until we can find a permanent home for him/her contact Viv on 01899 880269 or email

We rely completely on your generous donations and our dedicated volunteers. If you can help us by fundraising, or volunteering your time in our charity shop or in any other way we would love to hear from you! Contact Viv on 01899 880269 or email
