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.

Proud Parents:  Erica and Paul Erkkila

(We may be including this and other animal snoods in the raffle at this year's Birthday Party! Remember to RSVP to contact@greyhoundadopt.org!)
