Beat the odds

We need your support to help more racing greyhounds across the most important finish line of their career – a safe and warm, loving home

Donations to our Beat the Odds campaign between midday on 27th November and midday on 4th December will be doubled!

More than 10,000 greyhounds from the UK racing industry are deemed ‘surplus to requirements’ every year. Many are abandoned, some killed crudely and others exported to countries with poor welfare standards.

The odds are stacked against them finding a forever home once their racing career is over.

4,837 injuries were sustained on UK race tracks last year.

There were 257 trackside fatalities.

Over 1,000 racing greyhounds were killed for reasons including the cost of veterinary treatment and no home being found.

Forever Hounds Trust offers a crucial lifeline to retired greyhounds.

Many come to us with injuries, or behavioural problems caused by lack of socialisation.

Our teams work extra hard to provide the special care they need to adjust to life beyond the track.

For one week only, the odds are in the greyhounds favour and any donation made to our Beat the Odds campaign between midday on 27th November and midday on 4th December will be doubled!

Please help us give more retired racers the second chance at life they deserve.

One donation. Twice the impact.

Our Beat the Odds campaign will fund the transportation, kennelling and veterinary costs incurred when resucing retired racers. The campaign will also pay for any behavioural support and rehabilitation required to prepare these special dogs for their forever homes.
