Ready the Beach 2017 - A great day at the Witterings

What a glorious September day at West Wittering beach where some estimated 40 to 50 greyhounds from Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare – and their helpers – met up and ‘Reached the Beach’.

Events - rtb2017

For most of the hounds it was their first time ever to the seaside and showed what truly wonderful dogs they are – and what fantastic supporters we are fortunate to have who took it upon themselves to make sure their own hounds and the kennel hounds had a great, fun-filled and exciting adventure.

The memories of the day will live on in the photographic and video footage taken that has been shared and enjoyed on our Facebook pages. Remarkable day and great people.

A sincerely meant thank you to each and every one of you for your part in making this a day to remember for the greyhounds – and for us all.

Upcoming Events.

24th September - WGW End of Season Party at the kennels.

From 4pm to 6pm. Our chance to say thank you to all our volunteers and supporters for all their hard work throughout the year.

Everyone welcome.


Mick and Sheena's Folkestone Half Marathon

Hound of the month

Paddy, Born 2008

Paddy has been with us for nearly 5 years now. He came in as a very young and excitable 3 year old with a strong chase instinct and although he has definitely mellowed over time he is still full of beans and will still need work with other breeds of dog.

What a delightful, gentle and loving boy he is. High time he found a sofa to call his own.

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.
