Because there is life beyond the track

About 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.

Sponsorship Hounds

A loving and caring home for life

In Memory - FrazerThe majority of the greyhounds that live in The Sanctuary did not arrive at our kennels with the specific desire to be there. Once they too had dreams of being a family pet. For some of them, they may yet know the delights of living in a real home with a real family. We’d like to think so. In the meantime The Sanctuary is their home and we are their family.

They are no less loved than our own pets at home. Many of our supporters and regular visitors sponsor these hounds and go out of their way to get to know them well and make them feel special. A real and very close bond grows as they get to know each other and it is a pleasure to witness their mutual delight when they meet.

By sponsoring a sanctuary hound you allow us to offer each and every one of our hounds a home in our Sanctuary should they ever need it. Because of this facility we are able to take in greyhounds that have been deemed ‘un-homeable’ by other rescues, knowing that if they truly are un-homeable then we can offer them the safety of The Sanctuary and give them a loving and caring home.
