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. 

“Miss Topaz” after a day of visiting (greeting, dining, and swimming) at Sacket’s Harbor.  Designated chauffeurs and leash holders are Mike and Elaine Enfonde.



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.
