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.

Why foster?

  • Fostering saves lives
  • Foster carers are a vital part of our rehoming process
  • Fostering is a great alternative if you can't adopt
  • Fostering gives you the chance to decide if a greyhound is the right breed for your family

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.
