Could you give a loving home to a retired greyhound?

Greyhounds are very lazy, gentle and affectionate dogs. They do NOT need a lot of exercise and in most cases two, twenty minute walks a day is enough. Generally, they settle quickly into a home and soon learn to become pets.

If you would like any more information please email  Karen Fraser via the Contact Us page or telephone Karen on 01609 761014.  If you would like further details about greyhounds as pets we will be happy to answer any queries or can arrange to send you an information pack. 

Our branch

We are happy to home anywhere in North Yorkshire/York and with experienced representatives in all parts of the county, especially York, Selby, Harrogate, Northallerton and Scarborough, can provide you with back up and support, if needed, and will help you find the best match for your home.  We usually have around 20 greyhounds looking for homes, including several that could be homed with small dogs.  We are also happy to home with cats and take care to match you up with a suitable dog.  Our website is kept up to date but we have new greyhounds becoming available regularly so if you are considering adopting a greyhound, please do get in touch.  We will almost certainly be able to find the perfect greyhound for you. 

We recommend looking at photos of greyhounds we've homed greyhounds on the Rogues Gallery page to give you an idea of how they settle into life as a pet, or why not come along to one of our meet and greets or monthly greyhound walks .  We will be happy to introduce you to our pet greyhounds and tell you about our experiences of adopting one as a pet.
