Greyhound and Lurcher Welfare and Rescue is a team of unpaid volunteers who believe that every unwanted dog deserves a second chance in life. We are dependent on volunteer help to carry our rescue work, home checks, fundraising and publicity work and all our expenses must be met by donations. Most of our Greyhounds and Lurchers have never lived in a house or had a chance to form close bonds with a human family. Some have been well cared for, others have been neglected or abused, but all of them are desperate for a fresh start. Greyhounds are by nature gentle and affectionate, forgiving and anxious to please and make wonderful pets.
