Dumfriesshire & Cumbria Greyhound Rescue

Adopt, Donate, Sponsor, Volunteer

Welcome to the Dumfriesshire and Cumbria Greyhound rescue. We look for new forever homes for retired or injured greyhounds from the surrounding area.  We never put a healthy dog to sleep and will endeavour to find a dog a new home or foster home for as long as it takes.  Please have a look at the homeless greyhounds we have at present and contact us for more information about any of them. 

Meet Petal - Now called Lilly and her new home in Aberfoyle!

This is Rhys, he is only 2½years old but has broken his back leg. When racing he broke the front leg and this was just left to heal unset and sadly left him with a limp. A few days ago he broke a back leg and was taken to the 

Glasgow Vet School for surgery. 

He is now on the road to recovery and back home at his foster parents in Dumfries. But he does have to go back and forth to Glasgow to get his dressings changed.

If you can help us raise the funds to pay for his surgery (now costing over £6,000) please make a donation today or tell us what you plan to do to help!

Dogs rehomed to date! 

Thank You!

We would like to extend our appreciation to all our supporters and helpers. Without the ongoing help and support we receive we would be unable to operate and help these wonderful hounds.

We are always looking for items for our charity shop in Lockerbie. We apologise that we do not have a collection service so if you can bring your donations to the shop that would be appreciated.

We welcome cash donations, you can donate via the button below, at our shop or telephone our treasurer (Belinda 01461400 66) to make your gift. If you are a UK Tax Payer we actively encourage you to “Gift Aid” your donation. This adds 25% to the value of your donation at no cost to you.

Our aim is to find loving homes for retired or injured racing greyhounds from the Dumfries and Galloway and Cumbria area. These homeless hounds need forever homes once they finish racing. We have re-homes over 1,000 dogs since the charity was founded. We are a purely voluntary charity with no paid staff or overheads so all donations can be used to help support and promote our rescue dogs.
