When people think Greyhounds, they often think speed and energy. It would be easy to assume that, along with other sighthounds, they need endless amounts of exercise, but that’s not necessarily true. Check out just some of the reasons why Greyhounds make perfect pets.

  • GREYHOUNDS ARE FAST, BUT PREFER TO BE FAST ASLEEP

  • THE ONLY PLACE A GREYHOUND REALLY WANTS TO RUN IS STRAIGHT INTO YOUR ARMS

  • GREYHOUNDS ARE ONLY SERIOUS ABOUT PLAYTIME

  • GREYHOUNDS GO FROM BED TO BEAUTIFUL IN NO TIME AT ALL

  • WITH A GREYHOUND, YOU MIGHT JUST HAVE MET YOUR MATCH
     

FIRST TIME VISITORS:

Everyone is welcome to visit the kennels and meet the hounds and the wonderful team that are looking after the hounds.

If you wish to take a hound for a walk then please bring documents with you that prove your address along with some photo id. For example; a recent utility bill along with a passport or drivers license or student card.

Opening Times are from 11am to 2pm each day

Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare (WGW) aim to relieve the suffering of greyhounds and other sighthounds who are in need of care and attention. In particular WGW provides and maintains kennel, refuge, rescue home and support facilities for the care and rehoming of unwanted greyhounds, and provides treatment for sick, injured or ill-treated greyhounds. WGW will never put a healthy dog to sleep. The specific objectives of WGW are:

  • To promote careful and responsible rehoming of greyhounds and other sighthounds
  • To provide ongoing support to our adopters, including facilities to care for their greyhounds or other sighthounds on a temporary basis after rehoming and, should the need arise, on a longer-term basis until such time as the greyhound or other sighthound is found a suitable home
  • To educate the general public on the plight of greyhounds and other sighthounds, and to promote them as suitable pets.
