Available Greyhounds

Here are a few of the available greyhounds. Click the more link at the bottom for a complete list.


Does your grey enjoy being lavished in attention? Do you like talking about your greys? Why not consider becoming a meet ‘n greet volunteer. We need new volunteers in all geographic locations – north, south, east and west. You can volunteer as much or as little as you like. We’re always looking for new venues in various locations in which to hold meet ‘n greets. If you’d like to volunteer or have any new ideas, please contact Colleen Smith (greyluvr@verizon.net) or Nancy Shade (nashade@comcast.net).


Are you looking for your perfect greyhound companion but don’t see him/her on the Available Greyhounds list? Don’t despair. GHG is still very busy finding homes for greyhounds, and lots of greyhounds are looking for homes. But due to a very small number of foster homes, we have found a new system of choosing dogs: we talk to our applicants and find out what they are looking for in their dog. Then we go to the kennel to choose a dog to foster specifically for them. Even better, we now often take our adopters with us to the kennel so they can choose their own dog!

Pay It Forward

Walk into the adoption kennel at Wheeling Downs, and see the walls lined with crates, stacked in two tiers. Each crate holds a greyhound—brindle, fawn, white with markings, black… One by one, those dogs come out of the crates for an “audition.” Each one is wonderful in its own way. One is happy and bouncy, one just wants to be cuddled, one has a injured leg but doesn't care, one has a tail that won't stop wagging…. And they all have those sad, pleading eyes. You want to take them all, but you have to pick just one because you don't have foster homes for more.
