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.

Meet Our Dogs

Learn About Volunteering

If you are in the area, please take a ride down and see the greys at our weekly open house at our shelter in Hialeah where you can get to know the greyhounds that are available for adoption and ask our knowledgeable volunteers any questions you may have. We’ve placed retired greyhounds in great homes in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Pompano, Coral Gables, Hollywood, Boca Raton, Delray Beach and everywhere in between and we’re very proud of the work we do. Remember you don’t have to own a greyhound to volunteer. Come for a visit and get to know us.

If you would like to volunteer or have something you’d like to donate, please contact us
