At Homeward Bound Greyhound Association you will find strong believers in educating the public about retired racing greyhounds and passionate advocates for their fostering and placement. We are just as passionate about uniting the tremendous community of greyhound lovers that exists in the greater Cincinnati tristate area. We've combined these beliefs into our mission:
• to find responsible loving homes for retired racing Greyhounds, • to educate the public about the desirability of Greyhounds as pets, • to inform the public of the availability of retired racing Greyhounds for adoption, • to build a community of individuals with an appreciation of the Greyhound breed, and • to work toward the continued well being of racing Greyhounds.
Please join us on our journey as we work toward fulfilling our mission. Together, we will celebrate Greyhounds and the great relationships they help us forge with each other.

Our Adoption Process...
The adoption process begins with the application. Typically, within a week of receiving this application and your deposit, we will contact you for a 20-30 minute phone conversation. The purpose of this conversation is to understand more about your home environment and lifestyle as well as your expectations of greyhound ownership. This is important to ensure a placement that works for both you and the hound. A home visit is generally scheduled within a week after the phone interview. Everyone who will be living in the house with the greyhound must be present for the home visit to occur. We are an all-volunteer organization, so most home visits are done on weekends. The adoption fee is $250.
