Retired Greyhound Trust in Cornwall

The Retired Greyhound Trust

Cornwall Greyhound TrustThe Retired Greyhound Trust rehome retired and ex-racing greyhounds throughout Cornwall and nationally.

With over 50 years experience, the Retired Greyhound Trust pride themselves on finding the right greyhound for the right home and the right home for the right greyhound.

The Cornwall branch is run entirely by volunteers, who live throughout Cornwall and between them are able to cover the whole county of Cornwall.

If you can offer a kind loving home to one of these beautiful gentle animals it would be much appreciated.

All homes are subject to a "Home check".  Once the "Home check" has been approved they will endeavour to help you choose a greyhound that is best suited.  It can be arranged for you to meet your chosen greyhound prior to homing.

Please note although I love greyhounds, used to own two of my own, and have pages about them on my web site, I am not actually involved with the rehoming process.

The Cornish contacts for anyone interested in rehoming greyhounds in Cornwall are:

Some photographs and details of greyhounds available for rehoming can be found on the Russet Greyhound Sanctuary Facebook page. and the Cornwall Retired Greyhound Trust Facebook page.

Meet, greet and walks with the greyhounds

Come and join the Cornwall Retired Greyhound Trust on thier regular monthly Sunday stroll with other greyhound owners. These "Meet, Greet and Walk with the Greyhounds" are held on the 3rd Sunday of each month, in a number of locations around Cornwall.

You don't have to own a Greyhound or a dog, but you are more than welcome to come along to meet the greyhounds and chat to existing owners.

If you are attending one these organised walks with a dog, it is expected that as well as clearing up after your dog/s they should remain on a lead at all times to protect both the dogs and our reputation. We need to be ambassadors for the Greyhounds.
