 MORE GREYHOUNDS ARE ARRIVING!
New doggies will be arriving late January 2019.  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, retired racing greyhounds available for adoption have dramatically declined as racing owners are keeping their greyhounds actively racing longer.  This scenario is anticipated to change by late 2020 when more racing greyhounds will be retired.  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 adopters patience.




FOSTERING
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.
