Sunday 12th June - Open Day at the Kennels - 1pm - 3pm

This event was a great success last year and an excellent opportunity to show local people what we do as a charity.

We will need helpers to run this event so if you're interested then please contact the kennels. Thank you.


Home at last - May 2016 update

It’s been really hectic at the kennels recently, so we haven’t had a chance to update you with news of some of the hounds we have re-homed recently.

We know everyone enjoys sharing our delight when a hound goes home, especially those who have been with us some time.

So here’s a quick round up of just some of those lucky enough to go home and we wish them all a long and happy life in their new homes.


We thought Stumpy might be with us forever and it was so hard to see her at the kennels, month after month, year after year. She had so much love to give. Luckily, Jemma and her family got to know Stumpy really well over this time and saw what everyone else was missing. 




What can I say? Just another big black lad who waited so long for a home.

Thanks to his new family for giving him the chance and to everyone at the kennels who cared for him and walked him whilst he was with us.

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.



 Please consider using Gift Aid when donating.

Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare, being a charity in its own right, is now able to claim Gift Aid on all donations.
