Fundraising for Us

Your help could really make a difference.....

elderly_gent.jpgGreyhounds make excellent family pets: they are gentle, loving and adapt to home life easily. We always need more people to adopt our dogs, so perhaps you could help?

These intelligent animals, who have devoted their early years to racing, now need some tender loving care in a loving family home.

An estimated 10,000 dogs retire from racing every year; the Retired Greyhound Trust works hard to find new homes for as many as possible. Not everyone has the room to take in a retired greyhound, but there are plenty of other ways in which you can help the Retired Greyhound Trust.

As with any charity, fund-raising is an essential part of our work and we depend a great deal on our army of volunteers who run our local branches and look after those dogs seeking homes. Perhaps you could help?

We have over 70 branches nationwide:  click here to find your nearest one if you'd like to get involved.
