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. 

This is Amanda and Tim McKallip with their GAGR dog Belle. 

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.

  • Transport Complete! It's been a long winter, but we've finally resumed transports. Today we received three new retired racers: April Ross, Nola Mae, and Canaan Corbetti. All have been adopted. Remember, if you're interested in fostering or adopting, you can apply here on our website at: Volunteer & Adoption Forms. We tend not to get a lot of extra dogs sent up that are not already adopted--in order to do so we need volunteers to foster them in their homes until they get adopted.
