About Our Rescue Group:

Greyhound Options, Inc. was formed in 1995 by a small group of volunteers devoted to finding loving homes for retired racing greyhounds. We do not operate a kennel, but choose to provide these dogs the stability, care and comfort only possible through a foster home network. Fostering also enables us to truly evaluate the temperament and behavior of each dog in our care, so we can best match adopter with dog. In 2008 we passed the wonderful milestone of placing our 1000th greyhound! As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, all expenses are covered through donations, and volunteers are always needed. Please contact us if you would like to make a donation of any kind.

Come Meet our Pets:

Meet and Greets are held most weekends of the month at various store locations throughout Western MA and Northern CT. Please email us for a meet and greet flyer.

We also have 3 special adoption events and a Golf Tournament each year. Please visit our website or email us for dates and locations of this year's special events.

Our Adoption Process:

Adopters must fill out an application (available on our website or by mail) and have a home visit before being approved for adoption. Minimum adoption donation is currently $250, and an adoption agreement must be completed. All of our greyhounds are spayed/neutered, vet-checked, heartworm tested, have had a dental cleaning and are current on recommended vaccinations. We require all dogs to be kept indoors and leash-walked or let out in fenced areas only. If an adopter can no longer care for his/her greyhound, it must be returned to the care of Greyhound Options, Inc.

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.
