Become a foster carer
Foster carers slowly and gently introduce their greyhound to pet life. Almost all of our greyhounds come from a racing kennel environment, living a very different sort of life to pet dogs. Being a pet is a whole new, exciting and sometimes scary experience for them. Patience is an essential element of fostering.

What our fosters carers say...
We truly love Amy here and can't imagine life without her, but I know in our hearts there will be a
family who will feel the same devotion to her as we do.
We love seeing the hound develop their own personalities as they settle. It is a truly rewarding experience and I love in particular being able to help more dogs than if we adopted just one.
My partner and I can't commit to adopting a dog yet, so we love fostering because it means we still get dog cuddles. Plus we get to "test" different hounds that might suit when we are ready to adopt.
