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.
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.
The Cornish contacts for anyone interested in rehoming greyhounds in Cornwall are:
- Geoff Pearce, at the Cornwall branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust on 01872 560629.
- Sandra at the Russet Greyhound Sanctuary in Camborne on 01209 831177.
Please note although I love greyhoundsand have pages about them on my web site, I am not actually involved with the rehoming process.
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
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.
Next walk: - Portreath Sunday 11th June 2017 - please note start time
Meet, Greet and Walk with the Greyhounds (GGGW) 11th June 2017 - Portreath, Redruth, Cornwall, TR16 4NN.
Walk distance approx; 2-3 miles. Time approx; 1.5 - 2 hrs. Walk starts at 10.00 am. (Refreshments available at beginning/end of walk).
Directions:- We will be meeting in the main car part at Portreath (fee payable), or along Tregea Terrace (we will be using the "Hole in the wall" and/or The Atlantic Cafe at the end of the walk).
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.
