WELCOME TO THE

GREYHOUND TRUST

WEST YORKSHIRE

 

Our West Yorkshire branch of the Greyhound Trust national

charity has homed many 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 ...

HOMING

FUNDRAISING

Fundraising has been forced to a standstill.

Under normal circumstances people are very generous by donating at events.
