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. 


"Flynn" and his best friend "Fat Louie"
Proud Mom: Caedran Parker



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.

  • Available Updates We got in two retired racers today...one was pre-adopted and the other is in foster; please see Available for more information. We will not likely get any more dogs until October as the September transports are all full--if you're interested in adopting or fostering, let us know well in advance via Volunteer & Adoption Forms.
