Lurcher SOS Sighthound Rescue

LSOS Founder, Laurie, and some lovely hounds
Lurcher SOS Sighthound Rescue
Now in our 15th successful year, Lurcher SOS was started in 2010 by two lifelong Lurcher owners. Lurcher SOS is a Lurcher, Greyhound, Galgo and Sighthound Rescue.


As Lurcher SOS HQ moves locations, now, more than ever, we are relying on our network of dedicated fosterers to allow us to keep rescuing dogs. If you would like to be a fosterer for LSOS, please head to this page to read our requirements and to apply. Thank you!


We have a network of supporters, fundraisers and foster homes in Kent, Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey, Essex, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire; we home our dogs throughout England, Wales and Scotland, but any prospective adopter would need to be willing to travel to visit their chosen dog in its foster home.

We are all volunteers and our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and home abused, abandoned and neglected Lurchers, Greyhounds, Whippets, Salukis, Galgos and all other types of Sighthounds worldwide.  Most of our hounds come from Ireland and the UK, but we are proud to help Cypriot and even Romanian and Egyptian Sighthounds! 

We are a non-profit organization and receive no funding.  We rely solely on donations from the public and are always in need of fundraising support to cover the cost of the care of our dogs.
