Could you adopt a greyhound?
If you would like to start the process of adopting a HUG greyhound please read our Homing Process information, and then complete our short online questionnaire or print it and post it to us.
Or contact us if you would prefer a paper copy of our information in the post.
When we have received your questionnaire we will get in touch with you and arrange your homecheck.
Here’s some more information about adopting a greyhound from HUG
All our hounds are Irish and are taken in by HUG in Ireland. Some of our dogs find homes in Ireland, others in the UK, and some are placed with other rescues in Europe for homing.
Nearly all our greyhounds are good with children (with adequate supervision), and/or older people, and with other dogs so we do not say that about each one. If a particular dog should not be homed with either children or is not good with other dogs we will say so on the individual dogs profile. Some greyhounds can also live with cats, for more information about this, please click here.
Most greyhounds will need some housetraining as most have lived in kennels up to the point of adoption. They usually pick this up quickly and we will provide housetraining advice as well.
Greyhounds love to live with another dog for company, particularly if their owner goes out to work. If you would like to talk to us about homing two dogs together please contact us for more information.
All our dogs are neutered and vaccinated, and microchipped. They all have a full veterinary check when they come in to us and they often have dental work if their teeth are in poor condition. We ask for a donation to go towards the costs of getting the dogs ready to go to their new homes, and the transport to get them there. We receive some help with funding but it doesn’t cover all our costs. The adoption donation can be reduced if you are on a low income and genuinely cannot afford it, as we do not want to stop a dog getting a good home on cost grounds. However you need to know that you can afford to keep a dog and to meet any vet bills before you decide to offer a home for a dog.
