Welcome to Kent Greyhound Rescue

We are a registered charity run by a very dedicated group of volunteers who passionately believe in helping the dogs find loving homes.  We are based near Hythe in Kent and as we rely solely on public donation you will see us out and about at fundraising events most weekends from April to October and at street collections throughout the winter months.

Although primarily set up to help find new homes for abandoned greyhounds, we also help lurchers and other sighthounds.  Please have a browse around our website which will give you lots of information about KGR, the dogs we currently have looking for homes, greyhounds and lurchers as pets, and how you can help us.

Here is how you can help us:
