Greyhound Adoption

Adoption of Retired Racing Greyhounds

Friends of Retired Greyhounds (FORG) is a 501(3)c non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to working with kennel operators and other adoption groups to place retired racing greyhounds in responsible, loving homes. Our organization works with veterinarians to insure that dogs adopted from FORG are altered, vaccinated, and in general good health before placing them in adoptive homes. In addition to this, we educate individuals and groups about greyhounds, their history, their lives as racing dogs, and our adoption program through weekly meet and greets at local pet stores.  We also attend local fairs, parades and festivals to educate the public on the benefits of adopting a retired racing greyhound into their families.  

 

What makes FORG stand out from the other local adoption groups is that we work together with the management and inmates of Crowley County Correctional Facility to provide basic training to our greyhounds that go through our adoption program.  This provides not only a huge benefit to FORG and our greyhounds, but to the inmates that work with them.  Let a retired racing greyhound race into your heart.
