Notes:About FORG Friends of Retired Greyhounds is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to working with kennel operators and other adoption groups to place retired greyhounds in responsible, loving homes. We work with veterinarians to insure that greyhounds adopted from us are vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and in general good health before placing them in homes. We also educate individuals and groups about greyhounds, their history, their lives as racing dogs, and our adoption program. Organization Background FORgreyhounds was started April 12, 2001 when seven friends met and voted to start an adoption group to help retired racing greyhounds find couches. FORgreyhounds, now Friends of Retired Greyhounds organization’s key mission then and now remains the same. Fast-forward twelve years and Friends of Retired Greyhounds is bigger and more efficient than before. With years of experience under our belts of placing greyhounds in their forever and loving homes, the sky is the limit with what we will be able to accomplish in the years to come. What is our mission? Friends of Retired Greyhounds strives to find loving forever homes for retired greyhounds and we work to educate the public about the breed as well as the life that greyhounds live as “professional athletes”.
