Available Dogs
This page was updated on November 10, 2014

If you are interested in adopting one of the available greyhounds shown here, please contact one of our representatives listed below or on our "Contact Us" page to help you with the adoption process. For a general adoption guide, please check Adoption Guide and for adoption requirements and general information about greyhounds, please check FAQs

No description is provided for greyhounds who have just recently arrived at our kennel. In all other cases, where a description is given regarding behavior, and the results of cat, small dog and kid testing, the information provided is merely for guidance. Each dog may adapt differently in a different home environment, with other animals or children whose behavior is different. Please work closely with our adoption representative to help you pick the right dog for your home.

Update - On Sunday, we had 32 beautiful pups arrive from Florida - 19 girls and 13 boys!  Thank you to everyone who came out yesterday to help with the dog load arrival!!!

Apartments, Condominiums, TownHomes - GPI reserves the right not to place a greyhound under 3 years of age in a condominium, townhome or apartment, due to their expected energy levels and activity needs.

GPI also reserves the right not to place greyhounds deemed as high energy in a condominium, townhome or apartment.

EXCEPTIONS to these policies may be considered for a particular dog, but they must be pre-approved by the President (or his/her board of director’s designee) AND the applicable Regional VP.

We always have a number of older Greyhounds to re-home, all aged 5 to 12+ years of age. We have them because we gladly accept all dogs back if circumstances in the family change.   Most senior Greyhounds (9+ years of age) seem to have endless tolerance and patience where children are concerned. And, the quiet dignity and noble bearing of the senior Greyhound lends itself to being the perfect companion for seniors, a quieter household, or anyone else for that matter, in our community. They are already house trained, know stairs and sliding glass doors. Originally, they were adopted when they were young but then lifestyles and circumstances in their families change. The Greyhound, now in its golden years, is returned to Greyhound Pets, Inc. Or perhaps the Greyhound was used as a brood matron or stud dog and, after several years of "making puppies", the Greyhound is no longer able to do its job. Whatever the reason, a Greyhound is available for adoption. These seniors make EXCELLENT companions and deserve the chance to be loved again. Please consider making a senior Greyhound part of your family.

We do not recommend picking a dog from its cute picture or color. Please choose dogs within your locality or within your driving distance. Being a volunteer based group, it is difficult for the organization to organize special transport of a dog from one end of our service area to another end. We make an exception for our Special Hounds.

We also do not recommend picking a dog straight from our kennel if you are from out of the area. Dogs in the kennel are usually fresh off the track and have not been evaluated in a home environment (unless they were returned from a previous home). We won't be able to answer questions such as friendliness with cats, other dogs, or children, ability to handle staircases or being left alone for a few hours for dogs that have recently arrived at the kennel. If you have certain conditions for adoption, such as cat or kid friendly, you may have to  wait for the dogs to be evaluated in a foster home before committing to adopting one of these dogs.

If, for any reason, you can no longer keep your greyhound, you must return it to Greyhound Pets, Inc.  On the adoption contract that you will sign when you adopt your dog, it states, "If I can no longer keep this dog I will return it to Greyhound Pets, Inc. immediately."  If you need to return your dog, please call one of the closest representatives listed above or 877-468-7681 to arrange the return of your dog.
