Help us make a difference
Adopting a greyhound
Greyhounds make wonderful family pets. They are intelligent, lovable, fun-loving, gentle creatures and make loyal companions for people of all ages. Many people think that greyhounds need lots of exercise. But the truth is they are sprinters rather than long distance runners. Two 20-minute walks every day is enough to satisfy them, although they are also happy to go on longer walks.
Not everyone can give one our dogs a home, but we still need your help.
We have a range of sponsorship opportunities that can really help us to help more retired greyhounds.
Looking after greyhounds while they are with us is an expensive business and sponsorship makes it possible to help even more greyhounds.

What We do
Our job is to find the right homes for our charges. The dogs we have available can be seen on this site. Come along and get information about greyhounds, chat to current greyhound owners, meet the greyhounds and take one for a walk.
Fostering a Greyhound
Fostering a greyhound can give great joy and happiness and a feeling of satisfaction knowing that you have helped one of these special, kind and loving dogs into a brighter future. Can you offer a temporary home?
We have a complete guide on how to care for your greyhound, from when you take them home all the way through to house training, feeding, and what to do as they get older.
We want to make sure you get the right dog, and the dogs get the right owner. We’ll walk you through the entire process of adopting a greyhound, including introductions and home checks.
What Drives Us
Our job is to find the right homes for our charges. The dogs we have available can be seen on this site and there is also lots of information about greyhounds and how to look after them. Have a look and then give us a call – or better still come to to the kennels and meet the dogs.
If you’d like to get involved with the East Midlands branch of The Greyhound Trust, we are always looking for people to help. From helping to care for our residents, or helping to organise events, or to help with fundraising.
