Greyhounds Retired Database's objectives
To provide a central system where adoption shelters
internationally can enter details of
greyhounds in need of good homes and the public can search to find the
animal that suits them.
To promote the adoption of retired greyhounds.
To help shelters get animals adopted.
To promote responsible and ethical pet ownership.
To receive feedback from users to ensure guidelines are adhered to
The Greyhounds Retired Database is a non-profit organisation, run in association with Greyhound-Data.com and Wellsgrove.com. It is dedicated to raising the
profile of retired greyhounds requiring homes.
The database is a free service for registered organisations and public
The database system allows re-homing organisations to upload details and
photos of Greyhounds in their care and those looking for greyhounds as pets
to search that database.
The GRD is not intended for use by breeders, or anybody seeking to take
financial advantage of animals.
GRD seeks only to help rescue organisations find good homes for pets. We
do not intend the system to be used for "on-line" adoptions. We expect
organisations to implement their usual high standard adoption
We will seek to receive feedback from users who home dogs via this
database to ensure organisations are working to acceptable guidelines,
it is our view that all organisations should carry out home visits prior
to homing greys, and follow up visits should also be carried out to
ensure they are settling in to their new homes.
