Greyhound Rescue Associations
Ex-Racing Greyhounds make wonderful pets

Greyhound Many people are under the impression that a greyhound needs miles of walking each day - they don't. They do need a good walk each day as all dogs do, but not too the same level as when they were in training for racing. just reasonable exercise, which is good for you and the dog.

Greyhounds love people, they like the attention that kindly children give them. They like other dogs, in fact when they are at Greyhound racing kennels they live in pairs, but they will live very happily with a family as an 'only' dog. An ex-racer needs time to domesticate, yes, they will chase a cat if given the opportunity, that is why it is an essential precaution for the Greyhound to wear a light weight muzzle when he is out, on or off the lead. They will not object to wearing a muzzle, in fact they associate a muzzle in the same way as a lead. They do need a warm coat in the winter as they do feel the cold.

Having a dog as a puppy can be wonderful, but it can also be a difficult time for about 6 to 12 months. The task of house training - puddles and poos, the chewing of the furniture and carpets, obviously some puppies will learn quicker than others, but it can seem endless and very expensive. Where as a Greyhound, if not, already house broken will learn within a few days not to spend a penny in the house. And is most unlikely to chew the carpets and furniture. They do not shed loads of hair, but they do like being groomed.

Why not give a place in your home for one of these affectionate, gentle, tolerant and truly magnificent dogs and life will take on a whole new meaning. Your rewards from a Greyhound will be boundless love and devotion. 'Greyhounds should be Ambassadors to all breeds of Dogs' quote from Gail in Sussex.

Retired, Abandoned and Abused Greyhounds Urgently Require a Loving Home - PLEASE HELP

Greyhound Rescue: Organisations and Rescue Centres

Loyal, Loving, Lively, Likeable and Laughable! A retired Greyhound gives all of this and never makes demands on its owners. This year consider giving a dog a home. Adopt a greyhound and put a little bit more joy into your life.

There are many many greyhound rescue organisations and greyhound rescue centres, they can find the right dog for you. Here are just a few who will be happy to help you to become a Greyhound Owner. Also, remember Lurchers are usually part Greyhound or Whippet and some organisations have Lurchers available for rehoming. If you think I should include your rescue association on this Greyhound Rescue Association page then please contact me and I will consider your request. Thank you. Jan

Acresway Kennels were formed in 2010 to raise money for the veterinary costs of abandoned dogs, strays and mistreated dogs that find their way to Acresway Kennels.

Our aim is:
To provide funding for the routine neutering and vaccination of all dogs in the care of Acresway Kennels
To provide payment for any emeergency operations that maybe needed by any of these dogs
To help any dog requiring care on a temporary basis such as the owner going into hospital


Resources are tight and many homes are required and are difficult to find so if you can help, please do.

Erin Hounds is based in the North of England and aims to help a few of the many abandoned and neglected sighthounds that fall on hard times in Ireland.
Our mission is:
To rescue and rehabilitate Irish sighthounds in danger

To assist people considering a greyhound or a lurcher as a pet
To raise awareness of greyhound over-breeding and other welfare issues in Ireland

We've homed over 200 hounds since we began!

Swiss Valley Greyhound Rescue was founded primarily to rescue, rehabilitate and

re-home greyhounds from the unlicensed track in Swansea, South Wales.

They take greyhounds directly from the track and from the trainers that race there.

The age of these greyhounds generally range from one to five years. Some are retired due to an injury, or their owner's circumstances have changed, whilst others find themselves in need just because they are too slow.

The greyhounds go to the kennels where they receive any necessary veterinary treatment, are vaccinated, neutered, de-fleaed, de-wormed and assessed. email:
