Welcome To
Rehoming Retired Greyhounds (Scotland) Ltd

Registered Charity SCO51594

Here at Rehoming Retired Greyhounds (Scotland) Ltd, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding, we have been determined to make an impact. The core of our efforts is to rehome ex-racing Greyhounds.

Greyhounds make great pets and are suitable for all kinds of families. Whether you work, have children or other pets, we look at all situations individually and work hard to match the right greyhound with the right family.

Rehoming Retired Greyhounds (Scotland) Ltd SCO51594 is a new Scottish Charity dedicated to finding home for retired racing greyhounds.  Based at Liberton Greyhound Kennels in the leafy suburbs of Edinburgh, greyhounds that come into the Family run kennels are spoiled by Ian, Janis and Gary Carmichael as they prepare for their new journey in life - a Forever Home.  The Charity is headed up by Alison Brown (CEO) and the many volunteers who work hard to fundraise and find homes for those graceful greyhounds.

We're here to help so if you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch. Please contact us to register your interest for one of our Greyhounds.

There are three main steps to finding your
perfect retired Greyhound:

  1. To contact Alison click on 'Contact' below. She'll know the dogs in their care and will be able to let you know whether they have a good match for you.

  2. Arrange a visit to meet your potential new Greyhound. You might like the look of a particular dog on our website, but you will find that the best way to find your new best friend is to go and meet the hounds. If you already have a dog, Alison may suggest you bring them with you to help you choose. 

  3. A bit about you. This isn't anything to worry about - we just want to know that our hounds will fit in.
