"The gift which I am sending you is called a dog, and is in fact the most precious and valuable possession of mankind"

These are various images from the Greyhound Rescues. In Ireland, Greyhounds aren't widely seen as suitable pets. Few Irish are aware of how clean, calm, and loving these dogs can be. Greys and most lurchers do not need any more exercise than any other hound their size. They spend most of their time sleeping, curled up on something soft. So, actually can take up less 'room' than a smaller dog that is more active.
PAWS is the only rescue I can directly endorse in Ireland that I trust to care for Greyhounds. ANY amount of charity, no matter how small, is always appreciated:
