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.


"Alfred" takes time to smell the roses, opps we mean zucchini!

Proud Parents:  Michael and Kara Overman




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.

  • Also, Snooki... was adopted about a week and a half ago. Congratulations to his new owners! We don't currently have any dogs available in foster homes. If you're looking to adopt, please apply on our Volunteer & Adoption Forms page; also apply there if you are interested in fostering. Remember, GAGR has no kennel, so we can only ask for as many dogs as we have confirmed homes available for them--either permanent ones or fosters.  Fostering can last anywhere from hours, to days, to months, but most seem to get adopted within a few weeks. While being fostered, the dog's vet care and food are paid for or provided by GAGR. What if you get too attached? Well, it ...

  • What happened to Blue? We recently removed 'Blue', an 11-year old greyhound surrendered to GAGR over the weekend, from our 'Available' page. We had him evaluated by a vet and found he has a number of age-related issues and that his overall poor health makes him not a good candidate for adoption. We will keep him in foster care/'doggie hospice' on medication as long as he can remain comfortable and will give him lots of love and attention. Thank you to those who have expressed an interest in him.  :/
