Around 10,000 greyhounds retire from racing annually, and many people are surprised to learn that greyhyounds after a very energetici life, either. They are happy with a couple of short walks a day, followed by a nap on the sofa. They are short haired, so don't need much grooming, and tend to be very placid, so make good pets for children. And they can and do make friends with cats, so if you've got a cat and are thinking of re-homing a retired greyhound... The Trust has over 70 branches around the UK so there's plenty of opportunity for you to get involved & lend a paw, or even take on a greyhound.
