Mission Statement of Greyhound Adoption of Greater Rochester, NY


Greyhound Adoption of Greater Rochester, NY, is a racing neutral non-profit 501(C)(3) all volunteer organization. We believe every greyhound retired from racing deserves the chance for a real home and loving family. Our goal is to bring hounds and homes together.

Please join us on Sunday, September 21, 2014 for our walk down Park Avenue at 1PM with a ice cream social immediately after.  Meet at 600 Park Avenue between Noon and 12:45PM. 

(See our "Greyt Events" for more details) 

Greyhound Planet Day 2014


To that end, we will make every effort to provide information on not only the unique qualifications of greyhound adoption, but on realistic expectations as well ... to offer ongoing support and guidance to those families who have made an educated, responsible commitment to adopt ...and to hold the welfare and well-being of the greyhounds above all other considerations.

  • Next Transport/Chase Hailtothev still available We are going to miss the September transport but are hoping to get some dogs on the early October transport. If you're interested in adopting a greyhound please Contact Us or apply at Volunteer & Adoption Forms. We do still have Chase Hailtothev available. Please consider adopting him...it can be more difficult finding homes for dogs that are either male, black, or not cat friendly--and he's all three. He'll be a wonderful pet for the right family. We have an update from his foster family:'"Chase" walks well on the leash,  he likes to take the lead to smell new things. He does like to run occasionally, but if his new owners walk him all the ...
