Greyhound Adoption of Greater Rochester, NY (GAGR)

Greyhound racing is coming to an end in Florida Dec. 31, 2020. Several tracks have already closed. There was an orderly process working to get all the ex-racers into adoption, however, the current pandemic has caused some tracks to close sooner than they thought they would.

There are a lot of ex-racers going into adoption right now. Although GAGR is no longer adopting out dogs ourselves, we are supporting Forever Home Greyhound Adoptions with monetary and fostering help. We urge you to donate at their site and if you are looking to adopt, they have many available greyhounds listed on their page and more are coming. They adopt to applicants all over NYS. Forever Home Greyhound Adoption is a non-profit and your donation is tax deductible.

GAGR continues to provide support to our adopters and will happily provide that support to adopters in our area who adopt from Forever Home Greyhound Adoption.

If you are interested in greyhounds, galgos, podencos and other types of sighthounds, we suggest the Sighthound Underground www.sighthoundunderground.com. Their dogs are sometimes fostered in our area.

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.

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.
