Forever Hounds Trust, formerly Greyhound Rescue West of England, is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and homing of greyhounds and lurchers. We home around 500 of these special dogs every year.
We started as a small operation in the West Country, and now have a presence across much of the country – so we can give many more greyhounds and lurchers the chance to find their forever home.
Forever Hounds Trust takes in greyhounds and lurchers in need. Our dogs come from members of the public, veterinary surgeries and dog wardens. We also help responsible trainers and owners rehome their racing greyhounds, where space allows. Some come to us from general rescue centres, and others from southern Ireland, which is the main breeding ground for racing greyhounds and where conditions are especially tough for sighthounds. Forever Hounds Trust takes in greyhounds of all ages, from puppies to golden oldies!
We carefully match hounds and homes, and provide support for life through our post-homing support team of qualified behaviourists. If you can give a loving home to a greyhound or lurcher, please contact us to find out more!
