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.

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.

  • Updates Pat was adopted...we currently don't have any greyhounds available as the three we had come in today are either already adopted or pending. If you put in an application over the past few weeks and didn't hear back, sorry about that--we had a mishap with the script that bundles up the data and emails it to our volunteers. Fear not, your data was not lost, it just got to our inboxes today. As always, if you're interested in fostering or adopting be sure to fill out an application. It might even get to us, eventually. ;) (kidding, it should be fine now. ;)
