Norfolk Greyhound Rescue is a small not for profit organisation (charity status being applied for).
Their main aim is to find caring humans to rehome Irish Greyhound-ex racers and those that never made it to the track. This is because there are literally thousands of dogs that either don’t make the grade, or are simply discarded once they are no longer suitable for racing. Sadly many meet a sad end.
The dogs live in foster care before they are offered for rehoming so that their personalities can be assessed. This enables the organisation to match up the right dog to the right family.
Most of the dogs will not have lived in the home environment before so can be wary of everything they meet, ie traffic, tv noise, stairs, meeting some other dogs, busy places etc.
If your human has experience of owning a dog they may be able to rehome one of Norfolk Greyhound Rescue dogs. The dogs come in many shapes and sizes and there are lots of gorgeous greyhounds waiting for their forever home……………….
HOW YOU CAN HELP………. FOSTERING?
Norfolk Greyhound Rescue are looking for people to help by offering a foster home for a greyhound as a ‘half-way-home’ until they can find a permanent home. They will cover the costs and provide expert support and advice.
Adopting a greyhound gives it a new lease of life; a life of comfort, fuss and security and everyone will be rewared tenfold by their calm and kind nature.
All prospective fosterers and adopters will need to be home checked. Here’s just some of the lovely doggies looking for loving new homes:-
Maddie. A 3yr old Brindle & white girl. Affectionate although quite timid, gets on well with other dogs.
Currently in foster and looking for her forever home.
Posh & Sasha, two litter sisters, are looking for a home (foster or permanent) together. These beautiful young ladies, are just stunning. They are waiting for a chance to have a taste of what a loving home of their own is all about. Could you find it in your heart to give these girls a home?
Rylo is a stunning 2yr old Black Boy. Currently living in a foster home with 2 other greyhounds and a Jack Russell. A very affectionate chap who loves his ear rubs.
Brilliant on the lead and loves his walks.
Most greyhounds are happy with just two 30 minute walks a day, although some will enjoy a longer walk.
