Help Save a
Retired Greyhound

We are  looking for greyt fosters!

They are the backbone of our organization without whom we could not bring up dogs for adoption!

Placing a dog in a foster situation does so much to help transition the greyhound to its new life.

Why A Greyhound?

401(grey) – It’s a greyhound retirement program.  For a one time donation of $50, the donor can name the dog they want to sponsor and we will thank them on our sponsor page.  Another way to donate is a repeating monthly donation.


Did you know that a lot of companies have matching gift programs for non-profits?

Check with your HR Dept. to see if your company does and you can double your donation to us.

We’re Greytful you stopped by...

You wouldn’t be on this site if you weren’t at least curious about adopting a greyhound.  You may be well-versed in greys, or you have heard something about them, or you are simply looking for a dog to adopt.  In any case, let us offer a bit of information about this awesome breed.

Until the racing industry meets its end, there is an ongoing, critical need to find great, loving homes for retired runners.  Greyhounds come off the track at all ages and with varied records…a constant stream of thousands of dogs per year.  Obviously, the ones that don’t pull in the money come off sooner.  It is mostly these we acquire, although on occasion we do get successful racers with a long career.  Either way, placement through an adoption group like ours is the only way these fantastic creatures are going to fully live out their lives.

Available Dogs

We cannot begin to tell you what amazing companions greyhounds are.  You can see it in their eyes, their playfulness, their devotion, and their intelligence.  You can see it as they adapt to a lifestyle never known before but of which they are so deserving.  Their attributes seem to put them on a higher plane somehow.
