Greyhound Rescue South Yorkshire is a non-profit organisation set up mainly to help rescue greyhounds and find them loving forever homes. We will however, endeavour to try and help any dog who is at risk of being put to sleep.
Greyhounds are all too often used and abused by the racing industry and many are put to sleep at just a year old if they won't chase or aren’t fast enough. Many others who do race will find themselves dumped when they stop winning races whether that be through age, injury or illness. The fastest dogs will be kept and bred from until they can no longer produce pups and each year over 10,000 greyhounds are unaccounted for.
Many people have the misconception that greyhounds need lots of exercise when the reality is they’re built for speed rather than stamina and are quite lazy dogs. Most are happy with two 20-minute walks a day and many will spend much of the day asleep! Another misconception is they can’t live with small furries; like any other breed there will always be some that aren’t good with small furries but some greyhounds will happily settle with cats and smaller dogs.
Greyhound Rescue South Yorkshire relies mainly on foster families to take greyhounds into their homes and care for them until they are rehomed. Please support us in any way you can to enable us to help as many greyhounds as possible. Whether that be offering to foster or adopt, helping financially or donating items or your time to help with fundraising and obviously by simply sharing posts and spreading the word on the work we do. Thank you.
We urgently need Foster Homes
We have many hounds waiting for a space who desperately need our help. Could you open your heart and home to one of them? Every foster home means a hound out of danger.
