Ownership & Rehoming

Racing Greyhound Ownership

Greyhound ownership is really rewarding and can cost less than you think. With your dog earning money each time it runs this can cover bills and fees. Owners receive free admission to the stadium when your dog runs, and you're also eligible to join the Owners Club which gives you free admission, free racecards and loads of other discounts.

Panther Racing

Anne Cairns setup Panther Racing in 1995 after managing several horse syndicate groups. Anne has to date worked with 35 trainers (horse and greyhound) and gained a wealth of experience, which is utilised each day with members. Greyhounds are now a major factor within Panther and they are building a group of dogs with Yvonne Bell at Sunderland.

Retired Greyhound Rehoming

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.

Durham & District Retired Greyhounds

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