Donations and Fundraising


  • The Irish Retired Greyhound Trust Programme is a bona fide registered charity (Registration No. CHY12127). We endeavour to do the very most in the areas of greyhound adoption and re-homing from limited funding and for this reason donations are always very welcome.

  • Did you know that you may be eligible for tax exemptions on foot of donations of €500 or more to this charity? Talk to your financial adviser for further advice.


  • Participate in a Charity Cycle Event or run a Marathon/Mini-Marathon or participate in other fundraising events in aid of the IRGT


  • Foster a retired greyhound until the greyhound has found his or her “Forever Home”
    • A suitable greyhound for your personal and family circumstances can be sourced for you to foster until such time as the greyhound can be adopted. A retired greyhound who has experience of living in a home environment tends to be adopted quicker than a retired greyhound being rehomed directly from a kennel environment. If the greyhound is compatible with family pets such as small dogs and cats this also helps in the rehoming of a retired greyhound
  • To showcase the suitability of greyhounds as pets to the general public in your area you could organise or promote events such as:
    • Retired Greyhound Strolls/Walks around your local park – these events to be promoted on local radio and local print media, etc.
    • Retired Greyhound Shows at a suitable location in your area – Again events to be promoted on local radio and local print media, etc. and owners and trainers in your area would then need to be encouraged to enter their greyhounds in these Shows as well as in other local Dog Shows or local Agricultural Shows where there are Dog Shows
