Greyhounds As Pets foster carers are provided with everything they need to get started:

Choosing to foster a dog is a very rewarding experience for both the greyhound and its carers. Over the 6 weeks you will play a critical role in helping one of our foster dogs to begin to adapt to life as a pet. Your greyhound may initially seem a very shy and reserved character. As you become more familiar to each other and they start to become accustomed to your home their personality will shine through. It is amazing to be part of this experience. If this is your first experience with the greyhound breed you will want to read through our FAQ’s which will answer most of your initial questions.
