Welcome to Brentwood Greyhound Trust! We are based at Ashwells Greyhound Kennels in Pilgrims Hatch, Brentwood. We've got a lot of dogs (all neutered and vaccinated) seeking loving homes - they all have their own personalities and stories. To see pictures and profiles for most of our dogs, click on the green button at the bottom of this page.
We do have other dogs not shown here aged between 2 and 10 years old. Why not come along and see them for yourself!
Kennel opening hours: 0930 - 1230 every day. Afternoon visits by appointment only.
Help! Volunteers Needed
We currently have around 50 dogs in kennels, all of whom have to be walked daily. If you can spare an hour or so on any day of the week, we'd really appreciate it!
We also need volunteers who could run a stall on our behalf at local events, taking a couple of dogs along where possible.
Not sure if a greyhound would suit your lifestyle?
A greyhound's racing life is a short one - most are retired by the time they are just 3 or 4 years old, some at an even younger age due to injury - which is why so many of this remarkable breed need our help.
Contrary to popular belief, they don't need vast amounts of exercise: they are sprinters, not marathon runners, perfectly happy with a couple of 20 minute walks a day - though these gentle and affectionate animals will happily trot alongside you for as long as you ask them to do so.
If you'd like to find out more about adopting a greyhound or to arrange to visit our dogs, please contact us.
