Summer is here and, with it, hot temperatures. To keep your greyhound safe and happy this summer,
here are some guidelines when it comes to summer heat.

Check out all our beautiful greyhounds looking for fur-ever homes at Adoptable Dogs.

Since the passage on 11/6/18 of the Florida Constitutional Amendment #13 ending greyhound racing 1/1/2021, retired racing greyhounds available for adoption have dramatically declined as racing owners are keeping their greyhounds actively racing longer.  Until late 2020, Greyhound Welfare advises that approved adopters will have a longer wait time to adopt.  Rest assured Greyhound Welfare has reliable sources for retired racing greyhounds and will continue to bring them in to our foster program on their way to their forever homes.  Greyhound Welfare appreciates adopter’s patience.

Curious about greyhounds but not sure you want to commit to full-time ownership?   Do you want to help a greyhound find his/her forever home?  Consider Fostering!  Greyhound Welfare has a well developed fostering program to guide our foster parents.  We provide the supplies and mentor…you provide the love. Please complete a volunteer application.  The retired greyhounds thank you.
