Pets at Our Rescue Group:

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a greyhound rescue and advocacy group who endeavors to save greyhounds and educate the public about racing and its effects on the greyhounds bred for the purpose of racing.

One of our biggest accomplishments is our website which is rated #1 on Google for its content on greyhound behavior and health.

We have been finding homes for greyhounds since 1992 and are a registered non-profit organization. We do educational outreach in our community and work very closely with our animal shelters, humane associations and animal welfare organizations. We are the only greyhound adoption program in the state of New Mexico who openly objects to the sport of dog racing and the injured and dead dogs left in its wake.

We also publish a quarterly newsletter which is accessible on our website (www.gcnm.org) under the heading GCNM News.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do adoption clinics in Albuquerque, NM, at the PETCO on Lomas, N.E. and PetsMart on Eubank, N.E. and also at Pet Vet Market on Montgomery - dates and details of these clinics and other events we attend or organize are available on our website (www.gcnm.org) under the heading of GCNM News.

Our Adoption Process:

Prospective adopters are required to complete application and read all articles regarding greyhound behavior which can be printed from our website (www.gcnm.org) on the Adopting a Greyhound section of the site. We then schedule a site check and interview of family or individual applying to adopt. Our adoption fee is $150.00 which includes sterilization, dental, vaccines, worming and any necessary veterinary care prior to placement in the event the dog has a racing injury or health ailment that exists before the adoption.

Requirements for qualifying to adopt are listed on our website (www.gcnm.org) on the Adopting a Greyhound page.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
