Greyhound Pets of America is a all volunteer, tax-exempt, 501(c)3, non-profit organization founded in 1987 for the purpose of rescuing ex-racing greyhounds. As of 1999, Greyhound Pets of America has 30 chapters and 8 sub-chapters around the nation. Our primary objective is to place these amazing dogs into loving homes to give them a long and happy life. Secondly, we want to educate the public, making them aware that greyhounds make some of the best pets available. Finally, we are seeking like-minded individuals who can volunteer their time or funds to help educate the public and aid our rescue mission.
