The Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT) was established in 1997 and since then many thousands of retired Irish Greyhounds have been rehomed through, or with the support of, the IRGT.

Over the coming weeks, every Wednesday we'll be bringing you some #GreyhoundWednesdayWisdom​​​ which we hope will help you to learn more about greyhounds and help you prepare for your new family pet.
