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.


Greyhounds Puppies born in March, 2015 at Regall Sports Kennel in CT have yet to start their racing careers! 

We will be here to make sure they get forever homes when then are retired!


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.

  • May Transports We are doing two transports this month on the weekend of May 16/17. It's currently looking as if at least 4 of the dogs will be adopted; 2 are going to be fostered although there's already been some interest in them. If you're looking to adopt, be sure to put in an application soon so that, even if we don't have any dogs available this time, we can find you one for a future transport. See Volunteer & Adoption Forms to apply. The current dog listings are on our  Available page and will be updated as soon as we know who's going where. :)

  • April Transport Five dogs (all black!) made it to Rochester OK today. They're all spoken for, but we still have Gabby available from the last transport--see our Available page for more details. The next transport will most likely be in May--remember, we can't ask for dogs unless we have have approved applications and/or foster homes available to take them. Please see our Volunteer & Adoption Forms if you're interested in either adopting or fostering for GAGR!
