Irish Retired Greyhound Trust


The Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT) is a registered charity (Charity Number: CHY12127). The Irish Retired Greyhound Trust was first established in 1997 by Rásaíocht Con Éireann. Funded through owners prizemoney deductions, matched donations by GRI & private donations, the charity works to rehome greyhounds after retirement and promote them as domestic pets. Retired Greyhounds make wonderful pets and loving companions. That’s why the IRGT are actively involved in the preparation and rehoming of retired Irish greyhounds at home and abroad through our adoption programme. Whether you’re an owner interested in rehoming your retired greyhound or a potential adopter who would love one as a pet we are here to help.

About Rescue Animals Ireland

My name is Maureen Ryan and I want to share everything I know about rescue animals to help you take better care of yours! I grew up raising rabbits, cats and dogs and have learned a lot over the years. I have also spend many years volunteering for my local rescues. Hopefully, my articles are helpful and as you read them you'll learn a little more about rescue pets.
