Greyhound Adoption of Greater Rochester, NY (GAGR)

On November 6, 2018, voters in Florida passed Amendment 13 which will end Greyhound racing in Florida on Dec. 31, 2020. Due to a large reduction in breeding, there is a current shortage of Greyhounds going into adoption. Since February 2019, GAGR has started a waiting list of those wishing to adopt. We will post an update once we know retired racers will be available for adoption again.

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.
