kerry with greyhounds

Our Mission

Birmingham Greyhound Protection (BGP) was set up in June 2012 by myself, Kerry Elliman. After a few years of rehoming greyhounds, I could see there was a big gap, a need to help greyhounds that were not lucky enough to be put into the mainstream greyhound rescues.

Our Vision

We want to ensure that all greyhounds have a home post racing.
