How to Help HUG

There are several ways in which you can help us help greyhounds. Some of them are listed below. If you have any other ideas, please feel free to contact us.

If you can offer a home to one or more than one greyhound please look at our adoption page for more information.

Within Ireland practical help is always welcome, particularly fostering. Fostering is an extremely rewarding way of helping a greyhound settle into a domestic environment whilst a foster home can be great for a dog who for a variety of reasons cannot physically thrive in kennels e.g. a dog needing nursing back to health. For people who cannot offer a lifelong home to a dog or if you want to see what living with a greyhound is like, the reward of seeing your charge going off to a new future as a happy, well adjusted dog is a very rewarding experience.

Donations & fundraising
We receive some funding from the Irish Greyhound Board but we are always in need of public donations to continue the work we do to help greyhounds. If you feel you could make a donation, no matter how small, please visit our contact page or simply click on the Paypal donation button on any page of the site. It’s simple and safe! We also hold frequent collection days in various towns around the country and are in need of human and canine volunteers to help out on the day, please keep an eye on our facebook page for upcoming collections. If you would like to help fundraise in any other way, either by organising your own event or collection, or with any other ideas, please do get in touch!

We have lovely posters available if you know anywhere to display one or more! We can send you some in the post. We also have leaflets we can send you if you can distribute them. Please contact us by email for more information.
