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.


"Sam" all decked out for July 4th!
Proud Parents: David and Barbara Bartholomew



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 Update Hi Everyone! As of yesterday, Poker has been adopted (congrats to his new family!) but we still have two retired racers available. Both are black beauties: one male, one female. Sorry cat and small dog owners, these two are not small animal friendly. :/ But to people with no small pets: don't overlook them! Poker was also not cat friendly but he had one of the biggest, best personalities of all the greyhounds we've ever fostered.  See Available for more information about Hulk and Pat and to check out the lovely pics!

  • 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.
