Greyhound Gap was founded in 2003 and gained charitable status in 2006. The aims of the charity are to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome greyhounds, lurchers and other sighthounds. The vast majority of the dogs that come into our care have either been abandoned or otherwise handed into council pounds. We prioritise taking dogs at risk of being put to sleep when they have served their time in the pound.
Funded almost entirely by donations, we rehome around 150 dogs each year. We can have up to 90 dogs in our care at any one time, in foster homes or in our kennels awaiting suitable foster homes or adoption. Greyhound Gap operates on a national basis so our dogs can be homed in most areas throughout the UK.
We are totally self-funded and work extremely hard to raise the necessary monies to continue helping these wonderful hounds. This is made possible by fantastic support from our network of volunteers and you, the general public. Without that generosity we could not do the work we do and we are incredibly grateful for every donation we receive, however small. Every single penny really does help!
