We have a good transport system in place but could always do with people who would be willing to do the odd pick up in emergencies. If you are in the Chippenham/Lyneham area and would like to make yourself available to transport dogs to our kennels on an occasional basis please phone us on 01793 322602.

 Please contact us if you would like to help GLWR by raising money or volunteering in other ways!
The dogs in our care are totally dependent on us for all their needs. We receive no funding from the greyhound racing industry and are totally dependent on you to support us by raising money and donations. Each dog in kennels costs us £8.50 per day, or £59.66 per week, plus food. We add to this the costs of neutering, innoculations, flea and worm treatments, health checks and dental work.

If you can help us in any way, whether that be by holding a boot fair stall, holding a fund-raising coffee morning or having a fund-raising walk, please contact us. If you can help in this way, please contact us at so that we can publicise your event on our website.  Just sending us a book of stamps is helpful.

If you can organise a street collection for us, we can supply collection boxes and flyers.  You will need permission from your local council, or, if it takes place on a business premise, the owner of the business.  Our registered charity number is given on the home page of this website.  If you are able to help in this way, please contact us at

There are now two easy ways for you to help raise funds for Greyhound And Lurcher Welfare And Rescue !
Shop Online and Raise Funds
Easyfundraising is a shopping directory listing some of your favourite online stores including Argos, Next, Debenhams, John Lewis, Toys R Us, HMV and over 600 others. Just use the links on the easyfundraising site whenever you shop online and, at no extra cost to you, we'll receive a free donation of up to 15% from every purchase you make. It really is that simple!
It’s completely FREE to register and you won’t pay a penny more for your shopping when you use the easyfundraising site. In fact you can even SAVE MONEY as many retailers offer discounts, special offers and even 'e-vouchers' exclusive to easyfundraising.
If you shop online anyway then why not raise valuable extra funds for us by using this fantastic scheme. All you need to do is visit and when you register, select Greyhound and Lurcher Welfare and Rescue - Chippenham as the organisation you wish to support.
Search the Web and Raise Funds

You can also raise funds when you search the Web - with easysearch, a search engine with a difference!
When you search the Web with easysearch instead of Google or any other search engine, you’ll raise funds for us with every search you make! Just like easyfundraising it’s completely free to use and if you make just 10 searches a day, you could raise £20 a year - or more - for us, just by switching to easysearch.
What’s more, easysearch is a 'super' search engine that combines the strengths of several search providers together - Yahoo!, MSN Windows Live Search, and many more. easysearch tracks down the most relevant and accurate results from across the Web, which means you’ll find what you’re looking for quickly and easily every time - all in one ‘easy’ search.
Check out our unique easysearch page at and use it every time you search the Web.
