I need a home!

Available for adoption in Ireland

The hounds below are currently in kennels or fostering in Ireland. In addition to the dogs on this page we also have a waiting list of dogs due to come in. So, if you don’t see a suitable dog for you in the list below, it’s always worth contacting us to see if a suitable hound might be coming in soon.

If * RESERVED * is under a dogs name this means someone has made a inquiry about that particular dog and we are checking out the home offer. But please do still contact us if the dog you are interested in is on hold for someone else. If you can offer a loving home we can put you on reserve in case that home offer doesn’t work out, and if it does, we can find another dog that’s right for you. There’s always lots of beautiful and needy greyhounds looking for their special home. All our dogs are neutered (except pups which are too young, then adopters need to agree to have this done), vaccinated and microchipped.

A homecheck and adoption fee will apply for all greyhounds.

Outside Ireland

With so many unwanted greyhounds in Ireland looking for homes, it is impossible to find them all an Irish sofa to retire on. A lot of the HUG greyhounds find homes abroad through our rescue partners, and we are extremely grateful for their help and support each year. If you are living outside of Ireland and wish to adopt a HUG hound then please contact one of the organisations listed below. All HUG greyhounds, regardless of where they travel to, are rehomed to homechecked adopters and as an indoor family pet.
