As a charitable organisation we rely on the help and support from the wider Greyhound-loving community. There are a number of ways how you can show your support for the work we are doing - be it donation, sponsorship of an individual hound or volunteering. We (and particularly the hounds) will be thankful for every little help! 


Donating to us couldn't be easier via our JustGiving profile. Whether you choose to make it a one off or a recurring donation, every pound will make a big difference to the hounds in our care. You can further boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate through JustGiving.

If you don't feel comfortable donating online, get in touch with us at to discuss alternatives.



Has one of our hounds captured your heart but you are not quite in a position to adopt? Why don't you sponsor him or her for just £5 a month or, alternatively, make a one off donation here.

We will send you a sponsorship certificate and of course let you know when we find your chosen dog a forever home. You will then be more than welcome to visit the kennel during walking hours to say hello and go for a wander with your chosen hound if you’d like!



We’re always on the lookout for more brilliant volunteers to help with the running of the RGOA.  We particularly need people who can share a small amount of their time every now and then to help walk our hounds.  We take each greyhound for a walk around the fields near the kennel every day and, as you can imagine, walking over 40 dogs each day is quite a challenge!  The kennels opening hours are 10.00 to 15.00 Monday to Saturday and 10.00 to 14.00 on Sunday.  Please do come on down then, or alternatively feel free to contact us for more information.
