Over 300 greyhound adoption groups work tirelessly to find happy homes for happy hounds. Contact a local adoption group to find the available hounds in your area. These hounds are available to special homes. Just keep scrolling to see their beautiful faces, and read their stories.
What is one of the worst things that could happen to a person or a dog during their lifetime?
To go through life without someone to love and care about them. This is Ollie. He has reached his golden years, and has not had one person who has ever stayed in his life.
Sprung from a shelter in New Jersey, he has been bounced from home to home. At ten, he's now safe at Grey Haven in Florida, but he doesn't have that one person who will be his forever love. While at Grey Haven, Ollie needs to undergo heartworm treatment, as he tested positive. His teeth are rotten, and as soon as he is cured from heartworm, he'll get the dental he's needed for years.
Right now he is resting comfortably in the Grey Haven house with many of the other hounds. He is sweet and sad, and so very dearly deserves a home of his own with a family who will love him. Are you that family?
This update from Ollie:
The wonderful humans here are going to clean up my teeth so I can give kisses without stinky breath. They also said I have worms in myheart?!? I don't know how that could be, as my heart is exploding with all the love and joy I have found here, so there is no room for these worms. But the humans said not to worry, they can make the worms go away and then I'll have even more room in my heart for my forever family's love!"
JASPER’S birth certificate says he’s 10 years old, but every bone in his body tells him he’s only six. He misses nothing and is in the midst of everything. Jasper loves his toys and enjoys a good run in the yard. The loss of his greyhound companion and the arrival of a new human baby, threw Jasper into a tailspin. He was returned to Greyhound Pet Adoption Northwest to find a new home that would lessen his anxiety. With the help of Prozac and a group of greyhounds around him, Jasper has lowered his stress level.

Almost Home for Hounds has many many dogs needing homes. AHH does all the medical and behavioral work, and then transports hounds to adoption groups, who find them homes. These pictures are representative of some of the dogs at AHH. The over 50 hounds are always changing. Right now over 20% of the hounds there are older, and so in need of love. Some of their pictures and stories are below. We think they are the Best Kept Secret. There are also many young ones, that haven't been handled, and need patient, understanding homes. If homes aren't found, they never get a chance at love.
I'm happy to help with any questions, just email me.
Love Letter is a sweet, old gal. She gets along with everyone, and is wise beyond her 9 years. Raced and bred, and likes cats.
Miss Rebecca is an 8 year old spit fire, with an opinion. Nothing slows her down, or gets in her way. She's full of personality and looking for love.
Rosa is a gorgeous smokey brindle. She's looking a little sad here, though, because all her teeth had to pulled. At eight years old, she's mellow and looking to give love.
Yosemite gets along with everyone, even cats. A friendly, outgoing girl, she is mellow and patient. She's nine.
NOTE: The Greyhound Gang is currently fundraising to help the over 50 hounds at Almost Home for Hounds and so we are not directly placing many greyhounds, except some very special ones. However, we do refer to these groups in our area, and are happy to answer any questions.
