Volunteers

As a non-profit organization, we rely on the selfless help of volunteers and donated funds or items. To enable Greyhound Pets, Inc. to achieve its goals for finding good homes for retired racing greyhounds, and to look out for their welfare, the organization requires volunteers to participate in any of the following adoption activities:

  • Booth Activities: Requires spending 3-4 hours on Saturday or Sunday at a booth in a pet store near you to promote the greyhounds, hand out literature and provide information about the adoption program. Check out the latest schedule for our booth activities.

  • Fostering Greyhounds: We periodically need foster homes for dogs awaiting their forever homes.  In order to foster you must have or have had a greyhound.

  • Transporting Dogs: Local help in transporting dogs from their foster homes to booths or from the kennel to booths or to the vet for their spay or neuter surgery is greatly welcomed too.

  • Kennel Turnout: This process involves letting the dogs in the kennel out at turnout time, loving on them, brushing them, making sure they get some exercise, and helping us to get to know the dogs better. Turnout takes approximately an hour to an hour and a half (depending upon how many dogs are in the kennel).  The kennel is located in Woodinville, WA.

  • Dog Food Donation: As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on donated dog food to feed the dogs in the kennel and in foster homes. If you know of a source where dog food is donated to rescue organizations, we would appreciate the information or your assistance in transporting the dog food to our kennels.  Contact: Moira Corrigan - 206-718-0475
