I already know I want one. Take me straight to the Retired Greyhound Adoption organisations.
Retired Greyhound Adoptions are on the increase in the UK and this is greyt news for ex racers. As these wonderful animals grow in popularity more of them can be assured of a happy retirement once their racing career is over.
Do you have room in your heart and your home for one of these gentle creatures?
Start by considering the practicalities of adoption then, if you think a hound is right for you, get in touch with your local re-homing group.
There are organisations all over the country so there should be one quite close to you.
We always advise you to go through a reputable re-homing group so you get the support and after care you need.
Just make sure any scraps are hound safe. Keep checking in with us as hound safe food is on our list of pages to create.
April is National Adopt A Greyhound Month - watch our video.
We're planning to build a list of as many reputable retired Greyhound adoption organisations as we can. We're starting here in the UK as we have some experience of our local groups.
The plan is to eventually expand and to list worldwide as well.
If you run an organisation, or have experience of a good one in the UK please contact us and we'll add the details to the list for you.
If you're considering retired Greyhound adoption scroll down and have a look for your local re-homing group in the list below. We're adding to it all the time but if you don't see anyone near you get in touch and we'll find your nearest organisation and let you know. We'll also add them to our site.
