Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue

The Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue was set up in 1989 by Pip Singleton who started bringing Greyhounds and Lurchers into her home in an attempt to stop them being destroyed.

The EGLR rescue grew and is now run by about 10 volunteers and has foster homes that look after and raise funds for the 70+ dogs being cared for at any one time.


Benji is still missing we believe he is still in the area as we have had multiple sightings over the last few weeks but sadly he shows his face then disappears. We have got experts helping us with traps and cameras but we just need some regular sightings to know where to lay traps and food for him please keep sharing him so we can bring this boy home.
