The Greyhound Trust was founded in 1975, since then we are proud to have found over 85,000 loving homes for greyhounds. Each year, we home approximately 4,000 retired racing greyhounds and help hundreds more, but there are many more that still need us.
A little history
In 1975, a small group of greyhound lovers formed the Greyhound Trust to help secure a bright future for Britain's retired racing greyhounds. In the early days, the Trust found just a few hundred homes a year through a limited branch network. We've come a long way over the last 40 years, and now help over 4,500 greyhounds a year through our volunteer-led branches.

In 1975, a group of dedicated individuals involved in the National Greyhound Racing Club, formed the Retired Greyhound Trust, in an effort to help find homes for racing greyhounds when they left the track.
