About Our Rescue Group:

Friends of Greyhounds is a non-profit (501c3) corporation whose mission is to provide retired racing greyhounds with a caring environment and loving homes and to educate the public about these noble, loyal dogs.

But we are more than that. We are a final ray of hope for greyhounds that have no place to go after they retire from running. Our fantastic volunteers work constantly to provide for these dogs. They accomplish so much through fundraising and kennel work and showing our dogs. We are an all -volunteer, all-donation organization.

We firmly believe that what we are doing, placing one dog at a time and saving one life at a time is making a difference . FoG was founded in 2001 in a single-car garage and has gotten over 2000 retired racing greyhounds into loving homes!
We are very proud of tha!

Our Adoption Process:

Friends of Greyhounds invites you to come visit the kennel and meet the dogs. If you are in our area, give us a call. If you fall in love with one that meets your needs, you may complete an application. If your app is acceptable, and you find the right dog for you, we deliver the dog to you. Our application and the manual of care are on our website and are explained in detail. Adoptions include a collar & leash. The adoption fee is $225 payable when we deliver your dog.
All of our ex-racing greyhounds are spayed or neutered, receive all of the appropriate vaccinations and immunizations, dental cleaning, heartworm test, etc. You also get records of their family tree and racing history. Your dog will be delivered to you so we can help get them of on the right foot - or paw!!
We will strive to see that you and your dog are a GREYT match and if there's a problem we're there to help. Please visit our website at www.friendsofgreyhounds.org to learn more about our dogs, our group, and our adoption process.

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.
