Retired Greyhound Trust in Cornwall

The Retired Greyhound Trust

The 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.

Retired greyhounds as pets in CornwallThe 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.

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

Please note although I love greyhoundsand have pages about them on my web site, I am not actually involved with the rehoming process.

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.

Greyhound photocards

Some of the photographs I have taken on the walks are now available to purchase as cards and gifts through my online store Blue Dog at Ding Dong - with Zazzle.

Meet, greet and walks with the greyhounds

Greyhounds make wonderful petsCome 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.

Next walk: - Lanhydrock - Sunday 19th March 2017

Lanhydrock, Great wood and the Avenue, meet in the main car park walk will start at 2.00 pm. Refreshment at end of the walk.

Directions:- Follow signposts from either A30 or A38 Bodmin to Liskeard, or take B3268 off the A390 at Lostwithiel. Meet in the main car park(Please note - the entrance to the car park has been altered, but is well signposted after the main roundabout.

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.
