Welcome to Greyhound Welfare

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.

Spring is coming and so are...the greyhounds! We've got a number of new arrivals tentatively slated to make their Mid-Atlantic debut in only a few weeks (April 4th to be precise). Keep an eye out on the site for these charming newcomers!

UPDATE: Wow! We've reached our goal in fundraising for this awesome boy's treatment! Words cannot express how greyt-ful GW and Cowboy are at the generosity and compassion of our supporters. Thank you!!!

Cowboy arrived in our Foster Program in late November 2014 and tested positive for heartworms. Cowboy's heartworm treatment will be approximately $2,500 and take 4-months of treatment and crate rest. Fortunately for Cowboy, he is only 2 yrs old and his heartworm infection is at a minimal level. We are hopeful Cowboy will make a full recovery.
