Castledon Greyhound Rescue provides a sanctuary & re-homing service for greyhounds in need in the UK. Greyhounds come to us as retired racers, as strays and from owners who give up their dogs due to life changing circumstances such as relocation, financial hardship, divorce, illness or death.
Castledon Greyhound Rescue provides the dogs with veterinary care, spay/neuter, vaccinations, good quality food, love and placement in a home for life that dictates their humane care.
Greyhounds are now becoming very popular pets - people are more aware of their plight and of course what fantastic pets they make......
~ contrary to popular belief, greyhounds don't require much exercise (two 20 minute walks a day is sufficient)
~ they have the most fantastic temperaments
~ they adore human company
~ they are extremely affectionate, gentle and docile dogs
~ they walk very nicely on a lead
~ amazingly, they are very quiet dogs that rarely bark
Greyhounds are commonly referred to as 40 mph couch potatoes!
