About Us

In 1995, we read an article in a newspaper on the plight of racing greyhounds after their racing days were over. This prompted us to take on our first greyhound, a 6 year old male.

Chappie arrived on 4th July and after 3 baths, we discovered he was white and brindle! Having raced the length and breadth of the UK, he so deserved a happy retirement. Tragically, it was short lived and at the age of 7 he was diagnosed with a calcification of the spine and we had to put him to sleep.

Having discovered that 10,000 greyhounds like Chappie needed homes each year, when approached by the national organiser of the Retired Greyhound Trust to establish a local Rescue Centre here in Jersey, it seemed the obvious path to follow.

We are currently celebrating our 21st Anniversary having homed 242

dogs here in Jersey, Guernsey, Sark and Alderney.

Since 1995 our family has grown. At present we share our sofas with 10 greyhounds of our own, namely:

Pola 12 years

Star 12 years

Nog 10 years

Fern 15 years

Jack 10 years

Orange Dog 7 years

Mr. T. 7 years

Hunter 3 years

Yang 2 years, Orion 2 years

And the odd one out..Opal (German Shepherd)
