Welcome to Greyhound Trust Humber! Clare and Phil began to foster and kennel greyhounds for the Trust nearly 10 years ago.
Their initial involvement was with the Hull and Bridlington branches, which eventually led to the establishment of 'Humber' back in the Summer of 2014. Since then the branch has gone from strength to strength.
Clare cares for the greyhounds' every needs within a secure half acre site located on the outskirts of Brough in East Yorkshire.
How we work
Once a new greyhound arrives at the branch, they are assessed on a one-on-one basis to allow us to determine their individual temperament and ultimately the type of forever home that would suit them best.
All of our greyhounds are socialised with everyday situations and occurrences to see how they acclimatise. We test each hound with various breeds - also with cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens, in order to assess their trainability.
As well as regular lead walking, our hounds are also exercised in individual paddocks, plus they can relax in the comfort of Phil and Clare's own home where they like the kitchen - especially when we are preparing dinner!
There is a socialisation area where prospective adopters can spend quiet time bonding with their potential new greyhound.
We do rehome to a wide range of people from retired couples to families with young children, and from people who work to elderly individuals wanting a companion.
We pride ourselves on knowing our hounds intimately, which makes finding your perfect match as smooth and stress free as possible. So please follow the advice of the people who know our wonderful hounds the best - our dedicated volunteers.
Come and meet our dogs
In line with Trust policy and due to onsite security, a home check is required prior to viewing our greyhounds. As we have no fixed opening hours ALL viewings are by prior appointment ONLY at times to suit. Please do NOT just turn up.
If visitors do not drive, then Brough Train Station is only a short walk away (a few hundred yards). And a local bus route serves the centre of Brough Town itself.
Telephone or email us for further information.
Please note due to current Covid 19 restrictions, visitors to the site is temporaily suspended. Telephone or email for information on the most up-to-date protocols on rehoming. We look forward to welcoming you back to meet our fabulous hounds soon.
