Greyhound Welfare is not accepting adoption applications from homes with cats.


Racing Greyhounds do not need rescuing. When they retire, racing greyhounds are ready to be adopted and settle into their forever homes. Please respect these highly trained athletes for their accomplishments and don’t refer to a racing greyhound as needing to be rescued. They need to be adopted.

NGA Certificates Available for Your Hound

If you own an ex-racing greyhound, your dog has papers! You can now register your greyhound with the officIal North American greyhound registry, The National Greyhound Association. A portion of the purchase of each certificate goes to a greyhound adoption group of your choice. This is a win-win for everybody in the world of greyhound adoption.
