Greyhound Welfare is a placement group for retired racing greyhounds. We place ex-racing greyhounds throughout the metropolitan Washington DC area (MD, VA and DC). Our goal is to make excellent placements, even if that means fewer placements.

KEEPING YOUR PET SAFE DURING THE HOLIDAYS - INFORMATION ON TOXIC FOODS AND PLANTS
With the Holiday Season just around the corner, we thought it best to re-post information on toxic plants and foods to our greyhounds. Decorations and holiday treats will abound, and can present toxicity issues to our greyhounds... For more information, check out our special page, Holiday Foods, Plants and Your Grey's Safety.
National Greyhound Foundation - Prison Dog Program
Greyhound Welfare (GW) has partnered with the National Greyhound Foundation prison dog program to receive retired racing greyhounds for adoption. GW is committed to continuing in its support for this very worthwhile program as one of several sources for the retired racing greyhounds we place. For more information (and a greyt video!) check out 2nd Chance at Life. (Also, don't forget to check out our new arrivals' bios - and come back often for updates as they settle in to their foster homes!)
