Welcome to Greyhound Trust Dunton

We are 1 of 70 branches of the Greyhound Trust and have kennels in Dunton in the south of Essex. The branch was set-up in 2006 and is made up of a small number of volunteers who are committed to finding homes for greyhounds once they have finished racing. Our success has led us to find loving homes for over 2200 dogs to date.

Through our flexible rehoming policies, our aim is to find the right dog to fit your lifestyle, whether that’s with small children, other animals or you are away from the home for short periods.

We believe that every greyhound deserves to be loved as someone’s pet and enjoy their retirement to the full. If you are that someone, and interested in giving one of our lovely hounds a home, please call us on 07852 734 958 or contact us.

For enquiries at the Kennels please call Maureen on 07743 296043 or 01268 415378
and for homing enquiries, please call Katie on 07852 734958.
