Clarks Farm Kennels
Clarks Farm Greyhound Rescue is a registered charity and is the Maldon and Tiptree (Essex) branch of the GBGB Greyhound Retirement Scheme. Working alongside the GRS and Friends of Crayford Retired Greyhounds they take in ex racing/retired greyhounds and find permanent loving homes for them.
Thousands of Greyhounds retire from racing every year. Some are less than two years old; the majority are aged around three and four. Many people do not realise that greyhounds make excellent family pets. They are gentle, loving and adapt to home life easily. Contrary to common belief they are actually very lazy and only need two 20 minute walks each day. When re-homed responsibly they can live with other breeds of dogs and other pets such as cats.
The expert team at the kennels can work with you to match the right greyhound to your circumstances, as all the greyhounds are socialised and cat tested prior to re-homing.
Greyhound Retirement Scheme
A greyhound's racing career is only one chapter in its life.
Whilst greyhounds enjoy impressive athletic careers on the track, in retirement they love nothing more than lazing around on the sofa in a caring and responsible forever home.
As part of our Greyhound Commitment, we have pledged that, wherever possible, every greyhound leaving racing should enjoy a long and happy retirement. The Greyhound Retirement Scheme (GRS) seeks to meet this pledge by ensuring the financial costs of homing a greyhound are met before their racing career even begins.
