Welcome to the Eastern Counties branch of the Greyhound Trust, which was started in the summer of 2007 with the belief that we can help many of the greyhounds that are waiting for new homes, and also to promote just how wonderful these dogs are. Most of our homings are in the Norfolk and North Suffolk areas but please don't worry if you don't live in these areas as we can put you in touch with dogs in any area.
Greyhounds make wonderful pets!
Contrary to popular belief, greyhounds are very lazy animals; "the fastest couch potatoes in the world !" Another myth that we are happy to dispel, is that greyhounds can't live with cats or other small animals. Oh yes they can !! They are no different to any other breed of dog in this respect, it's just a case of putting the right dog in the right home. So, if you are thinking about getting a pet that will not ask too much of you, but will give you back so much love and eternal thanks for you being there for them, then PLEASE, seriously consider homing a greyhound...it could be the best decision you ever make. We hope you enjoy looking at our dogs looking for homes!
We have a number of dogs just waiting for a loving home. If you are specifically looking for a cat trainable greyhound, and we don't happen to have any suitable at the moment, then please still get in touch. We regularly have greyhounds in for homing that have been living with our cat testing friends and working with our Darlington colleagues Janet & Dougie Brass so if you dont mind being a little patient we should soon have with us the one for you. We do not home greyhounds to live with cats unless they have been through our training process first.
The Eastern Counties branch is co-ordinated by volunteers who all have full-time jobs so please do bear with us when contacting us. Where possible we would suggest emailing new enquiries using our Contact button above for a speedier response.
