Ownership & Rehoming

Retired Greyhound from Newcastle Greyhound Stadium

A house becomes a home with a retired greyhound...

Greyhounds make wonderful pets, and generally retire between three and five years of age, so have many years ahead of them. 

Friendly, gentle and loyal, they quickly adapt to family life, getting on well with children, the elderly and other pets. 

They only need two short walks a day and will happily spend the rest of their time dozing by your side.

Contact us at to find out more about this hugely rewarding experience.

Greyhound Homing Centres

Durham & District Retired Greyhounds help to find forever homes for retired racing greyhounds from Newcastle Greyhound Stadium.

At any time we have around 30 greyhounds of all ages and temperaments available for adoption. If you’d like to see which one is perfect for you, you can book an appointment at our kennels to meet the dog and ask us any questions.

Hollin Hall Homing Centre was opened in October 2005 and houses 22 retired greyhounds.

If you are thinking about a new pet you are welcome to visit the centre, see the dogs and ask any questions you may have without having to commit to taking a dog. 

All dogs within the scheme are neutered and vaccinated up to date.

Racing Greyhound Ownership

Owning a greyhound is a hugely rewarding experience. 

There are thousands of owners across our sport, many of whom have been involved for generations. 

It is also something that draws newcomers to the sport each year, whether as part of a syndicate of friends, a family or as an indvidual.

Being part of this exciting sport may cost less than you think, and benefits include free admission to the stadium, discounts, free racecards and much more.

Why not become involved for the love of the sport and the love of the dogs?
