Adoptions & Available Greyhounds
With dogs running at speeds up to 41 mph, a greyhound race is over almost as quickly as it begins. Greyhound racing is a highly competitive sport – a fraction of a second separates the winners from the rest of the pack.
When their racing career is over these good natured and gentle dogs need loving homes. Approximately 25,000 racing greyhounds are retired every year and all of them deserve loving homes. Our goal, along with like-minded organizations, is to ensure that every greyhound gets that chance.
If you are considering adding a pet to your family, consider adopting a retired racing greyhound. Recently, voters in the state of Florida passed Amendment 13, which bans greyhound racing by 2020. Florida has over 10,000 dogs that will need to be re-homed. TGS is helping to re-home these dogs. However, please realize that racing does not end in FL until 12/31/2020. If you are interested in adopting, please be patient.
Below you will find information about the greyhounds currently in foster care through the Triangle Greyhound Society. If you would like to learn more, or are interested in adopting a really greyt pet, please contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fill out the application below. Greyhound racing does not end in Florida until 12/31/2020. Many larger tracks are still racing and many groups throughout the US and Canada have been requesting dogs. We may not have available greyhounds until Summer of 2019. If you fill out an application, be be patient. Thanks.
On May 26th, 2019, we will have 2 female Spanish Galgos available for adoption. Please read about these dogs on the Galgo Podenco Support website.
Galgos are Spanish sighthounds and are very similar to greyhounds, but they are very different dogs. Please note that a single family home AND a 6" fence is required to adopt a Galgo. Before inquiring about them, please be sure you understand the adoption requirements.
