Why a Greyhound

You wouldn’t be on this site if you weren’t at least curious about adopting a greyhound.  You may be well-versed in greys, or you have heard something about them, or you are simply looking for

a dog to adopt. In any case, let us offer a bit of information about this awesome breed.
Until the racing industry meets its end, there is an ongoing, critical need to find great, loving homes for retired runners.  Greyhounds come off the track at all ages and with varied records…a constant stream of thousands of dogs per year.  Obviously, the ones that don’t pull in the money come off sooner.  It is mostly these we acquire, although on occasion we do get successful racers with a long career.  Either way, placement through an adoption group like ours is the best way welcome these fantastic creatures into your family


We cannot begin to tell you what amazing companions greyhounds are.  You can see it in their eyes, their playfulness, their devotion, and their intelligence.  You can see it as they adapt to a lifestyle never known before but of which they are so deserving.  Their attributes seem to put them on a higher plane somehow. GPA Greater Cincinnati crucially needs YOU to consider adopting one of our beautiful greyhounds.  Come to a Meet & Greet to experience them in person.  Ask questions.  We are greyhound families ourselves and are there to answer any and all queries you may have about the breed or a particular dog.
Every greyhound has the right to live out its days in happiness and comfort.  YOU are the potential path for that to happen, and then YOU could know the joy of coming home to a dancing, prancing, long-legged, needlenose hound acting like a pup because he is thrilled to see you again…and again…and again!!

We are  looking for greyt fosters!

They are the backbone of our organization without whom we could not bring up dogs for adoption!
Placing a dog in a foster situation does so much to help transition the greyhound to its new life.
