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.

Here is how you can help us:
