Greyhound adoption

LATEST COVID-19 INFO: We are now rehoming again so please get in touch via our CONTACT PAGE or FACEBOOK. Once you have made contact with us, we can send you a copy of our homing criteria and online adoption application. We ask that it is returned to us so that we understand your individual circumstances, along with photos/videos of where the greyhound would live/sleep and also of the garden to check for security – a ‘virtual homecheck’! We are available to answer any further questions you may have regarding our new homing procedures but please bear in mind that we are a small independent charity and all of our team provide their time on a voluntary basis.

If you would like to offer one of our greyhounds a home, please contact us and we will arrange a suitable time to visit you so that we can meet the family and answer your questions. We check a few simple things, such as garden security and any children or other pets to consider, and can also give you lots of advice on how to help a greyhound settle in to a new home.

If all goes well, we will find a greyhound which we think is best suited to your home, family and lifestyle and make arrangements to bring the dog to your home. When homing a greyhound we always stay long enough to ensure you have bonded with your new pet and that he/she is settled and happy in their new surroundings and continue to be on call to answer any queries during the settling in period.

All our greyhounds will be neutered and have dentals as well as vaccinations updated if necessary. In the event that the dog is rehomed prior to this happening, arrangements will be made with the new owner to have these done at the earliest opportunity. We supply everything that you will need for your new friend: a collar & lead, house collar, plastic box muzzle, homing pack, bag of food and outdoor coat appropriate to the time of year/season. We ask for a donation of £150 to help cover our costs and enable us to help more greyhounds waiting for their forever homes.

We advise that you get a raised feeding stand – these can be supplied for a small charge.
