Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare is an independent charity devoted to caring for retired racing greyhounds and finding them homes. We are self-funding and rely on the kindness and generosity of our supporters and the general public.
We care for approximately 80 greyhounds at our kennels in Hersham, and the majority of these are gifted into us by their owners or trainers once their racing days are over so that they have the opportunity to experience life as a family pet.
We actively promote the fact that greyhounds make wonderful pets and adapt to life after racing very well. Enjoy your trip round our website but better still come to our kennels and meet the stars of this particular show.
Not all greyhounds are so lucky so we do step in and help those less fortunate greyhounds who are at risk, as and when we are able. We operate a ‘no destruction’ policy, which means that no greyhound will be put to sleep except on health grounds when there is no other option. For those greyhounds with long term medical or behavioural issues we have a sanctuary – their home for as long as they need it.
Please visit our Sanctuary Page to see the our most special hounds. And then come along and visit the Sanctuary, take these hounds out for a walk and spend some time with them.
More details of our Sanctuary Hound sponsorship scheme - giving the gift of life - are available on our Sanctuary Page
