• Pretty Greyhounds

    Norfolk Greyhound Rescue

    Greyhounds from Ireland – we prioritise Irish dogs. This is because we like to speak for those who have no voice. Thousands of dogs are bred for the track in Ireland every year, and a staggering number don’t make it. Some are just “not good enough” to race. Some do race but once they stop winning they have outgrown their use. Sadly very few of these hounds end up in pet homes in Ireland.

    Great Pets

    We are happy to say that the secret is now out that Greyhounds Make Great Pets! This is thanks to some high-profile famous people who have spread the word. In addition, all our hound ambassadors throughout the world win people’s hearts when they meet and greet them. Consequently more and more humans are realising that these dogs are not racing machines to be exploited but are loving, gentle and rewarding companion animals.

    Greyhounds & Exercise

    The commonest misconception about Greyhounds is that they need lots of exercise. This is generally not so at all. Approx. two 20-minute walks a day is all they need and probably the chance to run offlead (preferably somewhere enclosed or safe) three times a week or so. Running (zoomies) sessions frequently take just 2 to 5 minutes, then the Greyhound is all ready to go and do what they do best – snoozing!

    It’s All for the Hounds

    We at Norfolk Greyhound Rescue pride ourselves on the fact that we are all volunteers – literally every penny goes to the benefit of the hounds. People have become jaded by giving to charities where much of the money is going on administration costs and salaries. This isn’t the case here – we love the dogs too much for any of that!

Greyhounds make wonderful pets and it’s a little known fact that they don’t need much exercise.      In return for rehoming one of these gentle and affectionate dogs, you will be rewarded tenfold by their calm and kind nature. They are great with children, many work as PAT (Pets as Therapy) dogs and some can live happily with cats. Norfolk Greyhound Rescue is a small local non-profit organisation whose main aim is finding caring people to rehome Irish greyhounds Read More

I Need a Home!

Greyhound awaiting rescue

Here you will find details of dogs who are in our care and needing homes.

We aim to give as much information about each individual hound that we can, in order to match the right dog to the right forever home.

If you wish to know more about adopting a greyhound why not read our article "Why Adopt a Greyhound"

If you are interested in offering a home to any of these hounds, you can fill in our rehoming questionnaire and you will be subject to a home check, which is a normal procedure for all decent rescue charities.

You Too Can Help the Hounds!

As you all know, NGR is going great guns. But we are looking for desperately-needed new foster homes. Our Irish rescuers are overwhelmed with hounds. We would love to help out more than we are doing already.

If we can obtain more foster places, we can rescue more of these beautiful hounds. Please call us on 07470 931 758 or use our contact form: Here

Help us to rehome more greyhounds by making a donation:

Every bit of money we collect goes towards greyhound rescue. We do not use kennels and have no paid staff. It is all entirely voluntary.

Our team of volunteers have just one thought in mind "save the Hounds". All the while greyhound racing exists there will be thousands of dogs killed every year if they no longer, make money for their owners. A huge number fail to make the grade in the first place, they also are killed.

This is why we are in desperate need of funds - the more money that we raise means more dogs saved.

Greyhound Articles

We are putting together a selection of articles dedicated to greyhounds.

We are now publishing more articles about health, training, and other interesting aspects of greyhound ownership.

Our first articles are Here. and we hope you find them interesting.

A lot of people have yet to discover the joys of greyhound rescue and ownership. It is to be hoped that all greyhound owners can help to do something to remedy that.

Learning as much as possible about canine care is an important aspect of dog ownership and greyhounds are no exception.

Canine Myotherapy

Canine Myotherapy - massage and muscular therapy for dogs.

Our dogs Pingu and Pixie have recently received treatment from Vickie China, a Canine Myotherapist. It sounds a bit "New Age-y" but definately is not, being based on sound anatomical science.

In short, the results were spectacular! Both of them were suffering from "rear-end wonkiness" with Pixie having already being diagnosed with Hip Displasia. They are both so much better since Vickie treated them, it's amazing. Pingu is so enamoured of the idea that he volunteered his rear to vickie when she last came!

If your hounds are at all arthritic do contact Vickie.
