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 or if you would like to help us in our work in some way.

Ace is a handsome black dog with white flecks. He is good with children and other dogs and well behaved on the lead. He is a kind and gentle dog that would be a wonderful addition to any home.
 
 
Ace is now RESERVED. There will soon be more recently retired dogs available for rehoming so keep coming to view.
 

Penny, the GPTR Ambassador

Penny Gorgeous and gentle Penny is no more.
She became very old and frail and it was a difficult decision but necessary to have her euthanised. Farewell Penny.

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.

• 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.


If you would like to contribute to the site content, particularly with a Features item or picture(s)and story of a dog that you have adopted via GPTR, please contact the


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.
