About Our Rescue Group:

Greyhound Pets of America - Greater Cincinnati (GPAGC) works collaboratively with adopters, with rescue, humane and other greyhound groups and the racing industry to find homes for retired racers.

Each year, 20,000 greyhounds retire from U.S. tracks in need of homes. Our targeted adoption territory includes Northern Kentucky, Eastern Indiana, and Southwest Ohio.

Our adoption application, intake and home visit process helps us identify appropriate homes for these gentle, loving dogs and to match people with compatible greyhounds. Retired racers are uniquely suited to live as companion animals. Affectionate and calm, they thrive on human attention and interaction, adjust well to home life and repay the kindness of their people with faithfulness and devotion.

Come Meet our Pets:

Most weekends we hold meet and greets at various locations around the Greater Cincinnati Tri-State area. Check our events calender at .

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fee:$230. Generally, within a week of receiving the online application, we will contact you for a 20 - 30 minute phone interview. A home visit is typically scheduled within a week of the phone interview. All persons who will be living in the house with the greyhound must be present for a home visit to occur. We are an all volunteer organization so most home visits are done on weekends. For more information go to and click on adoption application.
We are firmly dedicated to finding the best quality and most compatable home for every individual greyhound we save.
This is accomplished through transitional foster care, application results, and adopter education with continuing support. It is our unwavering commitment to ensure a lifelong, loving match between each of these gentle companions and its new family.

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.
