We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the people who have taken on a Greyhound and also to everyone who has donated something to help these majestic animals to find their forever loving homes 
Welcome to Bridlington Retired Greyhound Trust 


Website Front Page.JPG

This branch was formed in 2007 with the main aim to re-home as many retired greyhounds as possible to loving permanent homes,. along with going to fundraising events and raising public awareness of these majestic animals.

Greyhounds make wonderful family pets and companions and our priority is to make sure they find a loving and caring home. We will advise you which dogs we feel will suit your circumstances.Please have a look at the profiles of our dogs and get in touch via the connect link on the contact us page.

"Alpha Feeds"  greyhound complete meal is fed to all our kenneled greyhounds and a majority of our owners greyhounds,  which can be obtained direct from this branch.

The Future Kris Greyhound of the Year 2014. Well done Kris for winning BRIDLINGTON GREYHOUND OF YEAR 2014 then going on to be BEST IN SHOW. So very proud of you and a great ambassador for retired greyhounds - a true "gentle giant" and not a bad bone in his body. See him at all of our fundraising events.

Somebody once said that Greyhounds do not like tea well we have news for them they do here are some pictures taken of the Greyhound ZIG ZAG PEARL drinking tea from a pot, the only problem is that it has to be out of a CHINA MUG or she will not drink it, nor will she drink it out of her dish, so you see Greys are choosey to say the least.

On Friday 12th December our Retired Greyhounds were invited to a coffee afternoon meet & Greet at Portland Mews as you can see from all the photo's a good time was had by all. Our greys were in their glory making themselves at home, and enjoyed being fussed over. A total of £98 was made and donated to our branch so a big thank you goes to the staff and people at Portland Mews for a great afternoon.
