Welcome to Greyhound Passport To Retirement. 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 would love to hear from you if you can offer a home to one of these gorgeous animals.

Advance notice of events:


We wish everyone - and all our greyhounds - a Happy Christmas


The workers at GPTR send Christmas Greetings and Good Wishes to all who have helped us during the past year.
If you are one of the many who have assisted us physically, or have come to our fund raising activities and spent or donated money, or have helped to spread the word about the plight of these gorgeous creatures then you will know that if the greyhounds that you have helped find a secure and happy retirement could speak there would be very many 'woofs' of appreciation at your kindnesses.

Thank you, and a Happy New Year too.

In the site :

• See the Greyhound FAQ page for information about greyhounds and the essentials of adopting and looking after one.

• Adopt a greyhound has information about how we proceed with a view to placing a dog in your life.

•  Looking for a Home displays dogs for whom we are actively, sometimes urgently, looking for an adoptive home. Really urgent cases are also featured here in this entry page.

•  Found a Home! celebrates the dogs that we have placed in adoptive homes. We are delighted that these creatures have found the loving environment that they so richly deserve after their racing career.

• Features is a collection of pages that feature greyhounds in one way or another; some reflect our work (and play) with the dogs, others are for general information - or just for fun. Especially for fun is the section It's a Dog's Life.

•  About Us : more about us and who and how to contact.

The bond that forms between human and dog is very strong and when it is broken it is understandable for us to grieve. We have introduced an In Memoriam section to provide a recognition of and opportunity to express that grief. If you provided a caring retirement for a rescued greyhound that has now passed on and would like to pay a tribute to your erstwhile companion we would welcome your contribution to our site.
