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.
The following dogs are in foster homes and available for adoption at this time

Name: Red (Mama's Grey Area)
Arrived: October 2017 (being rehomed April 2019)
Color: Red Brindle
Cat Friendly?: no (also no small dogs)
Notes: Red would prefer a home without male dogs. He gets along with females, but could also be an only dog.
Red liked his previous owner’s grandkids and is described as friendly and sweet with people. Cats- not so much. Red was adopted in October, 2017 so he used to home life. He is used to a schedule where someone is home a lot.
Please apply if you feel you can be the home Red needs. He will be medically up to date and no adoption fee is required for a qualified home.
