Welcome to adopt-a-greyhound.org

Welcome to adopt-a-greyhound.org, the official website of The Greyhound Project.

The mission of The Greyhound Project is to promote the welfare and adoption of greyhounds by providing support and information to adoption organizations, adopters, and the public.

We have assembled tons of information to help you learn more about them, so please take a moment to explore our site. Hopefully, you'll join the thousands of people who have discovered that their adopted friend is one of the nicest and most affectionate pets they've ever had.

We can also help you find out where you can adopt one.


January 2021 -- After a year long, worldwide search for an impartial and financially sound group, The Greyhound Project’s board unanimously accepted Greyhound Adoption League of Texas’s (GALT) kind offer to continue carrying out our mission under our name. GALT shares our commitment to remaining neutral on the subject of greyhound racing, and they are committed to supporting ALL adoption organizations to benefit the dogs. We ask that you join us in offering your full support of their efforts as they continue publishing Celebrating Greyhounds calendars, maintaining the worldwide directory of adoption organizations, and promoting April's National Adopt-A-Greyhound month.

With the close of Florida's tracks in December, GALT and other groups are working tirelessly to feed and pay the medical expenses of dogs waiting for homes. Please support your local adoption group (check our agency listings to find a group near you). Getting the dogs from Florida to groups that can rehome them is an expensive process, and your local adoption group is the place to begin. Donate funds, foster, and/or adopt. Ask them what they need. It will take all of us pitching in together to get these dogs safely to their couches.


New electronic photo submission guidelines are here! The Greyhound Project and GALT produce calendars as a fundraiser for adoption groups, and about 10,000 are purchased annually. Each photo caption identifies the dog, adopter, and agency, and we send a free calendar if one of your photos is featured.
