Forever Hounds


Charity Name: Forever Hounds

Forever Hounds is the leading greyhound rescue charity in England and Wales independent of the greyhound racing industry. We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused and abandoned greyhounds and lurchers, and re-home over 600 of these special dogs every year.

Forever Hounds takes in greyhounds and lurchers from members of the public, veterinary surgeries, dog wardens and the police. We also help responsible trainers and owners rehome their racing greyhounds. Some come to us from general rescue centres, and others from Ireland, where the situation with abandoned and unwanted greyhounds and lurchers is particularly acute. Forever Hounds takes in greyhounds of all ages, from puppies to geriatrics. We carefully match dogs with homes, offering support for life to ensure that hounds and humans alike are happy in their lives together.

We also promote better welfare for greyhounds and lurchers through our participation in the UK Greyhound Forum and our strong links with other leading welfare charities.

We receive no funding from the greyhound racing industry and are totally dependent on donations from the public to fund our work. Forever Hounds is run by a network of dedicated volunteers across the country with support and co-ordination from one member of staff in an overview role. We are dedicated to ensuring that our work reaches as many needy hounds as possible. Our vision a day when every greyhound and lurcher is free from risk or need. Your support can help us achieve this goal – thank you.
