Greyhoundhomer was first formed in April 2006 by a small group of volunteers originally spread over Essex, Suffolk and Hertfordshire. Once approval came from the Retired Greyhound Trust Head Office, Greyhoundhomer started by homing dogs directly from owners and trainers. After a successful first few months the organisation was asked to take on a kennel full of Greyhounds needing homes. Since then we have gone from strength to strength so that currently over 1000 greyhounds are in homes as a direct result.




You'll find a Greyhoundhomer RGT stand at many events throughout Essex & Hertfordshire giving the general public a chance to meet our beautiful Greyhounds close up. Due to the large number of dogs we have now homed there are many social events throughout the year. These include walks in a number of different locations, curry nights, quiz nights, barbecues and race nights. So there are always lots opportunities to make new friends, meet old ones and to discuss Greyhounds!

Several owners and supporters have raised funds for us by completing sponsored events such as skydives, bike rides, giving up smoking and sponsored swims. If you would like to run an event in support of Greyhoundhomer RGT please get in touch via the Contact page and we'll give you any support necessary.

As well as all the above we will always focus on our core activity, finding forever homes for as many Greyhounds as we possibly can and supporting their owners in looking after them.

There's lots of information on this website and we hope you'll find it useful and informative.
