About us (GPTR) and Contacts
Welcome to Greyhound Passport To Retirement (GPTR). We are a small group of volunteers dedicated to finding loving homes for ex-racing greyhounds.
We operate and seek homes in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, and Gloucestershire.
We find homes for greyhounds that have retired from racing or are unsuitable for racing for one reason or another.
We liaise with trainers in our area so that we have prior notice of a dog that will be available for rehoming. If a dog cannot be rehomed immediately after retiring it has to be fostered or kept in kennels temporarily until we find a home for it.
We would love to hear from you if you can offer a home to one of these gorgeous animals or if you would like to help us in our work in some way.
Although our group consists entirely of unpaid volunteers we do have continuing expenses resulting from general administration, home check travelling, and fostering and kenneling.
Our fund raising efforts involve sales, sponsoring, and donations - if you can help with any of these or join our group in a more direct fashion then we would be most grateful. See below.
- We have started a GPTR guestbook in which we invite you to post comments and general questions.
This link will take you to the preliminary page of the guestbook.
You can contact us via our main workers June or Shirley (email addresses & tel nos below). They will be able to put you into touch with other members of the group depending on your needs.
The postal address for all homing enquiries and completed questionnaires is :
Cirencester, GL7 5TA
