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.

  • Update on dogs in foster Finch was adopted a couple of weekends ago, and Barbie and Stewart went home last weekend. That just leaves Jug Head in foster.

  • ...and more dogs arriving on March 30 In just over a week we should be getting three more retired racers into foster homes in the Rochester area, along with two more to be adopted immediately. We don't have information to post about them yet but will do so as soon as it's available. Finch (racing name 'Consumer') is still being fostered and is available for immediate adoption...see the Available page for more details (I have updated the foster notes now that he's been here for a week). As always, adoption applications can be found here: Volunteer & Adoption Forms.
