Who are we ?
Barley Kennels (Greyhound Trust Epping Forest) is run by a committee of volunteers who all passionately believe that each and every retired greyhound deserves a loving and secure life after racing.
What do we do and why ?
Our main function is to provide the best care for the greyhounds after their racing career has ended and to find the greyhounds the right family home so that they can lead a happy and full life. Greyhounds make the perfect family pet and we want to promote this message far and wide.
Are you interested in a retired greyound as a pet ?
Greyhounds make great pets and are suitable for all kinds of families. Whether you work, have children or other pets, we look at all situations individually and work hard to match the right greyhound with the right family.
So you have adopted a greyhound...
Fantastic news! We're so pleased you've opened your heart and your home to one of these beautiful dogs.
Most greyhounds settle in well to their new homes and take to life as pets like ducks to water, but if you would like to find out a little more about training your greyhound, we are here to help.
Please find some useful training guides to help your hound get the most out of home life.
You might like the look of a particular dog on our Facebook page, but you will find that the best way to find your new best friend is to go and meet the hounds.
We are dedicated to responsible homing and all adoptions are subject to a home visit. This isn't anything to worry about - we just want to know that our hounds will fit in!
