JR Whippet Rescue

For 50 years JR Whippet Rescue has been helping whippets in need. Whippets who have been lost, abandoned, or have strayed. Whippets who have been neglected or ill treated and are suffering physical and/or mental distress. Whippets who are threatened with destruction or with sale to a dealer. Whippets whose owners are experiencing life changes incompatible with continuing to care for their dogs.Whippets, most importantly, who may not survive without our help and yours.

How You Can Help

Every year JR Whippet Rescue secures the futures of 100 or more whippets genuinely in need of rescue or urgent rehoming.

We couldn’t do this without our many dedicated and generous supporters.


To offer a Whippet a home, please carefully read our Rehoming Process and then fill in our online Adoption Application form.

If you need to advise us of a whippet in need of our assistance or if you need our help to find a suitable new home for your Whippet, please use this online form.
