Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue, Jade the lurcher
GALR homepage


Poor greyhound Dave has spent all his life in kennels.  Here is his message to you:  I’m Dave. I’m a shy, quiet boy who is looking for a foster home. I’m 71/2 yrs old, so an older boy who would love some home comforts for the rest of my life. I’m neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. I am on medication for my nails but that medication expense will be covered for me. PLEASE someone give me a chance.  If you may be able to give Dave the foster home he needs so much, please ring Julie at Essex Greyhound Rescue on 0796 7327544 or e-mail Julie Terry <>


Our website is dedicated to helping to find good homes for abandoned, abused or neglected greyhound and lurchers.

We have a list of rescues that help these loving, gentle dogs. If you are thinking of giving one of these dogs a second chance by adopting a greyhound or lurcher, please contact one of the rescues on the list.

We have a frequently asked questions page, but if you have a question about greyhounds and lurchers that is not on the page, please contact us.
