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.

GAGR's oldest greyhound (14 years and  2 month old) "Desi"

Proud Family:  The Wilts

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.

  • Mailing List If you're a past GAGR adopter or volunteer you're probably on our mailing list and occasionally get emails about events and other local greyhound news. Please be on the lookout for an email about changes to how we are doing mailing lists. If you haven't gotten it already, we're sending them out over several days so you might not have gotten it yet.  We have so many people to email now that our provider doesn't allow us to email everyone individually all at once (spam rules!); we're hoping to get around this by creating a private Google group. If you're already getting these emails, don't worry, you don't need to do ...

  • Pictures, Updates There's a Meet and Green going on today at the Garden Factory (one more shift)...I've posted some pictures in Garden Factory Meet and Greet, October 2015. If you have any photos of this even that you'd like us to add to the album, please Contact Us. Bang Bang (now called Maddie) has been adopted and Athens is going to his new home this weekend as well...which leaves us with no more dogs in foster. We are not expecting to do a transport in November, so the next will be December at the earliest (if we get enough interest). As always, if you are interested in adopting or fostering, please apply on our Volunteer & Adoption Forms ...

  • Transport Update We had another transport on Sunday and three more greyhounds have safely made their way to Rochester. Two were already spoken for, but we have one cat friendly red male in foster and ready for adoption. I believe there's been some interest in Bang Bang but I'm not 100% sure she is definitely promised to anyone yet, so she is still listed on the Available page as well. She has recovered from her spaying and, other than needing another week of leash-only walking, is ready to go!Congratulations to the new adopters!
