WELCOME TO THE
The Greyhound Trust aims to ensure that every greyhound leaving racing is found a loving home as a pet; since 1975 over 85,000 have found 'forever families' via the Trust's network of branches.
Our West Yorkshire branch has been contributing to this since 2000 and has homed hundreds of these wonderful dogs.
We have a wealth of experience behind us; so whether you are an 'old hand' or a first-time dog owner in need of support, we will always be just a phone call away.
We currently have about 20 greyhounds waiting for homes - and as one lucky one leaves there is another waiting to take the place ...
Contact us to find out more about homing a greyhound.
2019 WAS A GREAT YEAR
In 2018 we homed a record of 70 greyhounds.
In 2019 we surpassed that & homed
88 of our wonderful greyhounds.
Huge thanks go to our amazing team of dedicated volunteers - who spread the word & raise the profile of retired racing greyhounds as a pets.
And especial thanks to everyone who opened their hearts and gave
forever homes to 88 greyhounds.
If you think 2020 could be the year for you to home one of our dogs we are ready & waiting & promise to do our best to match you up with your perfect greyhound friend.
