We are an all volunteer adoption group which became a reality in June 2000. We successfully obtained our non profit status and have worked extremely hard with our focus on helping Greyhounds find loving homes. We work with many groups and send referrals anytime we get inquiries out of our area.
We are supporting a prison program through donations and fundraisers which helps more Greyhounds adjust while also helping the inmates find a purpose and make a commitment. We supply supervised training, all medical needs, all needed supplies and a professional trainer.
Greyhound Rescue Foundation of Tennessee has grown but we are still a close Greyhound family. We follow-up with and support all our adopters.
We are fairly small but makeup for it with our determination.
If you are located in or around East Tennessee, the boarders in KY, AL and GA check us out at www.greyoundrescue.org

We have scheduled Meet and Greets on the 2nd Saturday of each month at PetSmart, Morrell Road, Knoxville, TN.
On the 4th Saturday of each month we are at PetSmart on State of Franklin Road in Johnson City, TN.
Also have M&Gs at PetSmart in Chattanooga, TN and participate in several adoption festivities throughout the year.
In addition we also participate with other rescue events scheduled thoughout the year.
Our Adoption Process...
We require that you meet the Greyhounds in person, complete an application then once the references are checked a home visit will be scheduled.
If all goes well with the Greyhound and everyone in the household including all other pets are in agreement and harmony then a contract is require with the adoption fee of $200.00.
