How can you help?

There are many ways to help our retired greyhounds.


Could you give a dog a home?
If so, please contact us on 01992 893 734 or email wkretiredgreyhounds@gmail.com

Unable to give a dog a home but keen to be involved?

March 2020: Update: Thank you for all your kind offers of help and fostering but we are fully functioning with our present staff and do not foster.  We really appreciate your kindness and support.  UPDATE: We are closed, except for emergencies.  All the greyhounds are fully cared for and the staff are working a skeleton shift.  We will look forward to welcoming everyone again when it is safe to do so.  Thank you again for your support and understanding and stay well! Please continue to get in touch if you would like to adopt a greyhound and we will be in touch about visiting once restrictions are lifted.  Thank you again
Thank you for all your kind offers of help and fostering, but we are fully functioning with our present staff and do not foster.  We really appreciate your kindness but have made the difficult decision to ONLY remain open to those interested in adopting a greyhound.  We are closed for walking or socialising at the Kennels and apologise, but hope you understand.  We stress that if anyone has a persistent cough or fever, please STAY AWAY from the Kennels.  Please email to make an appointment to home a greyhound and we will continue to keep homing dogs and caring for the current residents as best we can.  Thank you again for your support and understanding and stay well! UPDATE: We have made the difficult decision that as from Sunday 22nd March, we will ONLY home presently to people we know who have already had a home check.  We will continue to operate on an appointment only system to this end.  To anyone who has not adopted before, please do continue to get in touch and we will welcome you as soon as this crisis is over.  Thank you again

In normal circumstances: That's great! We always value support whether it is raising funds or volunteering at the kennels.  We always welcome volunteers at the kennels!

You can help Whittingham Kennels if you shop at 'Pets at Home' - every penny counts!  Please take one minute to do the following: Just log in to your VIP account online and select Hendon as your homestore.  (It doesn't matter if it is not near you).  Then select your charity as the "Henlow and Walthamstow branch of the RGT".  This is us and it is as simple as that!  Please tell all your friends too!

Donations of dog food (especially tinned dog food of any variety, sardines, biscuits etc) are always greatly appreciated; and tins are always useful for dogs who need to eat only soft food, for example after a dental operation.

In addition, we would also value donations of earth/soil to fill in the holes which the dogs can dig in the paddocks during the Summer months!

If you would like to sponsor a dog, it is £1 a week - more information can be provided by email.

Please get in touch and we would love to see you!
