Contact us if you can offer a Crayford ex-racing greyhound a place in your home, or would like to find out more about the work of the FOCRG.
As a Registered Charity (No. 1088855), we depend on fundraising and donations to fund the transition from racing kennel to homing kennel.
We incur costs for supporting the homing kennels in finding forever homes for our hounds.

Meet & Greet Events
Due to the change in racing schedule for 2024 our Meet & Greet events are on an ad hoc basis until we can establish a regular day.
Rosie is our regular ambassador. Her racing name was Monfinn Rose and she resides with her trainer, Tommy Batchelor. However, she's a bit of a live wire and gets so excited whenever she catches sight of the hare!
On some events we may joined by Sally (Boleyn Sally) and her adoptive parents Roz & Terry and we welcome anyone who wishes to come along and join us.
Why not come along? Our Meet & Greet events are a great family affair, and the kids will love to get up close to the greyhounds. There are photo opportunities. as well as a stall raising funds for our charity.
Our friendly team will be only too happy to chat and answer any questions you have.
Throughout the year we hold sponsored race days with fundraising and adoption the primary focus of everything we do.
If you wish to take part and support us in any way please get in touch.
For any more information please use the contact form on the Contact us page, and we will respond to you within 24 hours.
We are continuously raising funds to raise awareness for retired greyhounds and the homing process to make sure the journey from the racing kennels to the homing kennels runs smoothly and successfully.
Each year we have fundraising events such as our Sponsored Race Night, Christmas Grand Draw along with other events at Ladbrokes Stadium Crayford in Kent.

Our homing kennels have homed hundreds of hounds over the years, and continue to do so through the GRS scheme and the Greyhound Trust.
