The FoG Kennel in Hialeah is CLOSED.

FoG is no longer holding open house in Hialeah. We have lost use of that kennel in a cost cutting
measure on the part of the tracks. But the dogs still need help and we are still here for them.
 
Read about our available dogs and our fundraising effort to get a new kennel of our own
that no one can take away from these dogs. We are working to have a place where you can come
visit us any day and not just on weekends. . .learn more . . .
 
Welcome and thank you for visiting our site. Based in South Florida, Friends of Greyhounds is a non-profit (501c3) corporation whose mission is to provide retired racing greyhounds with a caring environment and loving homes and to educate the public about these noble, loyal dogs. We are a final ray of hope for greyhounds that have no place to go after they retire from racing.
