Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Keystone Greyhounds is non profit organization dedicated to finding responsible homes for retired racing Greyhounds. We are an all volunteer group based in South Central Pa. Our goal is to place the right hound in the right home and to promote public awareness about what excellent, loving pets these noble dogs make.

About Our Rescue Group:

The primary purpose of Keystone Greyhounds is to find responsible loving homes for greyhounds, which fail to qualify or no longer qualify for the racetrack. KG acquaints the public with the desirability of greyhounds as pets and informs them of the availability of these dogs for adoption. We work with the greyhound industry to closely match the dogs to the adopter. Keystone Greyhounds provide pre and post adoption education and support each adoption fully. We also encourage adoption of senior and other special-needs dogs.

Our Adoption Process:

People adopt Greyhounds after filling out our application, which is available on line or by mail, and pass our screening. After we receive the application and a deposit check for $100, an appointment will be made for one of our reps to come to your home for a field check and to answer any questions you may have.

All of our dogs available for adoption range between 2 and 5 years old and have a life expectancy of over 12 years. They have all gone through a complete vet check. They have all been spayed or neutered, are current on inoculations and have had their teeth cleaned. The total adoption fee is $225

For the time being, Keystone Greyhounds is not adopting to families with children under the age of six.

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.
