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.
Great News! During March and April, 14 retired racing greyhounds will be arriving in to our foster program. All will be looking for their fur-ever home. Check back frequently to meet our "Adoptable Animals".
GREYHOUNDS IN GETTSYBURG - APRIL 27-30 2017
Greyhounds in Gettysburg or GiG as it is affectionately called, is a four day annual event full of vendor shopping, educational seminars, social activities, and more! Thanks to the dedication of countless volunteers, GiG has become the largest greyhound reunion in the country with more than 1,000 sighthounds and their people arriving in historic Gettysburg the last weekend of April from all over the globe. For more information, check out, Greyhounds in Gettysburg.
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!)
