About Our Rescue Group:

Founded as a Nonprofit 501(c)3 Corp in December 2003, PGC Inc. is an all-volunteer group dedicated to finding homes for retired racing Greyhounds. Whether retired due to age, injury or just not fast enough, Greyhounds make wonderful pets. Our passion for these amazing dogs make’s us the best.

Unlike other Greyhound adoption groups, all PGC Greyhounds are put into loving foster homes, NOT kennels. Thanks to these wonderful foster families, PGC is able to learn everything about the Greyhound before it’s placed into a home.

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.
