Greyhound rescue wales


Welcome to Greyhound Rescue Wales, the rescue and rehoming charity for greyhounds and lurchers in Wales. We strive to make a difference to the lives of greyhounds and lurchers by ensuring they have a life after racing or hunting; a life they deserve.


Getting Involved

Greyhound Rescue Wales

Adopting a Pet

Greyhounds make wonderful pets.

Please take a look at our beautiful hounds. As we have a constant intake of Greyhounds, not all are displayed on the website straight away, so please contact us for the most up to date information.

MakING a Donation

Donating to us couldn’t be easier, whether it is £1 or £100, your donation will be making a difference to the greyhounds in our care. Paying for vet costs, food, bedding, toys, homing costs and more.


Volunteers are the lifeblood of Greyhound Rescue Wales and we simply wouldn’t be able to operate without them! From walking our greyhounds, or helping at street collections or volunteering in the shops your time makes all the difference to our greyhounds. Please see our volunteering page for vacancies.

Adopt Today

Read about our adoption process

We believe adoption is preferable to buying because there are so many unwanted dogs desperately needing homes. Unlike adopting a puppy you get a dog whose character is easier to predict. We also ensure that any dog you adopt will already be neutered and vaccinated.

FSA Approved Brokers for PetPlan Insurance

GRW are FSA approved ‘brokers’ for Petplan. Every dog now goes to their new home with 4 weeks free insurance from them and if the adopters take up a policy we get 20% of the premium every time it is renewed! Please notify us if you do not take out a Petplan policy.
