Welcome to Friends of Greyhounds

Welcome and thank you for visiting our site. Based in South Florida, Friends of Greyhounds is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) 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.

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

The FoG Kennel has moved to Sunrise.

Since greyhound racing is done in South Florida, FoG does not have
any dogs from the track so we no longer hold ‘open house’ for adoptions.
 
We may occasionally receive dogs that are returned from adopters and
we will certainly make them available to be re-adopted as soon as possible.
