We have solid partnerships with trusted overseas rescues and organisations, as well as those in the UK. This means that our rescued Chinese Greyhounds and other dogs breeds can find homes in other parts of the world as well as the UK. Ultimately, this means we can save more dogs from the meat trade in China.

Whippet Hilfe (Germany)

After almost 20 years of active animal welfare work, it was now time to found our own breed-specialized association.
Especially with whippets, it is often not easy to choose the right platform to find a suitable new home.
And so we were contacted more and more often to assist with placements or to take in dogs.
Our active team introduces itself in detail under the heading The Whippet Help Team.

Furthermore, we have a network of whippet-experienced people throughout Germany who are at our side with words and deeds.

We are always happy to welcome other like-minded people who would like to support us. Gladly in the active work of the association or as a sponsor, e.g. for the medical care of dogs that live in volunteer foster families.

Here on the website in the Around the Whippet” section and on our Facebook page, we also share joint activities, such as walks or exercise opportunities, where you can also get to know each other personally and make contacts.

We are excited to see how our project will develop and hope to be able to help many people and their whippets.

Yours, Bettina Kalmbach
