We Find Homes For Retired Greyhounds!
Greyhounds For You is a UK-based voluntary organisation dedicated to the work of rescuing and homing retired greyhounds. These are greyhounds that have finished racing, or have declined to race. Retired greyhounds make wonderful and unique pets yet often find themselves unwanted, and without a home.
We rescue and rehome greyhounds in many areas including Berkshire, Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex and the Home Counties.
1999-2011 - 12 Years of Homing Greyhounds!
In the beginning... Greyhounds For You (G4U) initially started in 1999 by Debbie Buxcey after she took her first greyhound home at the end of 1998. At that time, the kennels was run by a man who loved his dogs but due to the very long days (and nights) that running a kennel requires, could not find the time to home his retired dogs. He also believed that no dog should be put to sleep unless at the recommendation of a vet for health problems.
Debbie identified that many dogs were just waiting for the right person to come along to provide love, care and that all important sofa!
By this time, Debbie had acquired a second greyhound and people began to approach her to ask questions about greyhounds. Above anything else, people could not believe that Debbie was quite happily living in a cottage with 13 cats and 1 rabbit.So Debbie, working with the owner of the kennel matched greyhounds to people and their own unique set of circumstances. Gradually friends and acquaintances adopted their own greyhound. But there are only so many friends able to adopt.
