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. 

Happy 13th Birthday to Blue (Erica and Paul Erkkila) 



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.

Ruby is still available to a non-cat (or possibly cat workable) home. Remember, if you're looking for a new family greyhound, your first step should be to put in an application at Volunteer & Adoption Forms. The same goes if you wish to try fostering for the group. Remember--GAGR does not run a kennel. We can only ask for as many dogs as we have approved applications and foster homes available to take them in.
