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.


"Whoever said money can't buy happiness never paid an adoption fee. Happy two year adoptaversary to my Flynn!"
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.

  • New Available Dog We've moved P Kay Pat up to Available -- turns out she's not cat friendly after all. :/So that means we still have three retired racers available--all black, all not-cat-friendly: males Hulk and Poker and female Pat.
