Our Mission

Operation Greyhound is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to the placement of retired racing greyhounds in loving homes. We are completely dependent on the support of our community for volunteers, and on donations from generous souls which help us to save precious greyhound lives. If you've ever been exposed to these animals, you know what we mean. They are very special creatures who repay any love shown to them tenfold.

Donations of time or funds are welcome and very much appreciated. For donations, please see our donations page. To volunteer, please see below.

Thank you.

Foster a Greyhound

Fostering is a great way to help a greyhound find a home. By living in a home with love and attention, even the shyest greyhounds tend to come out of their shells. Fostering also allows our organization to take in more greyhounds during overflow periods. Fostering a greyhound can be an extremely rewarding experience. You can read about someone's personal fostering experience and decide if fostering might be right for you. There are not always dogs available for fostering, but when there are, we think it's a win-win proposition. (Special note: It is important to note that it will be necessary to bring the "fostered" back to Operation Greyhound periodically so he/she can be viewed by interested "permanent" greyt parents.
