OVER 5,800 GREYHOUNDS ADOPTED

Welcome to ADOPT A GREYHOUND ATLANTA, INC., Atlanta’s oldest Greyhound adoption group. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to providing food, shelter, and TLC to retired racing Greyhounds plus other sighthounds in need, and promoting their adoption as loving and loyal companions. Our ex-racers come from those area states that offer Greyhound racing, primarily Florida. Once entering our program, a Greyhound either finds a ”forever“ home or lives with us for the duration of his/her life.

For additional information on Greyhounds and the adoption process — or for arranging a visit to Greys’Land to meet Greyhounds who are awaiting adoption — please call Carl Viener at (770) 469-9533. Carl will be able to answer all your questions plus schedule a time for your visit.

If you are interested in adoption, we ask that, prior to visiting Greys’Land, you complete our online Adoption Application form. This form does not obligate you to anything. Its purpose is to provide us with information so that we can better assist you in choosing the Greyhound that best fits your lifestyle.
