ADOPT A GREYHOUND ATLANTA, INC., Atlanta’s oldest Greyhound rescue group, is 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.
OVER 5,300 GREYHOUNDS ADOPTED
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.
Prior to visiting Greys’Land, we ask that 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, if you do decide to adopt, we can better assist you in choosing the Greyhound that best fits your lifestyle.
On Wednesday, March 5th, Adopt A Greyhound Atlanta suffered a massive fire. The home of Carl Viener, our president and founder who lives on the property, burned to the ground. Luckily, all of the Greyhounds were saved, along with a portion of their adjoining living quarters, and all are safe and being well-cared for. Ultimately, the entire complex will have to undergo major reconstruction, but we at least got electricity (per generator), phone, and Internet restored to the remaining structure.
We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of offers to help. Frankly, the #1 need is money. If you would like to make a donation, you may do so through our PayPal Account.
In addition, a special account has been set up at Wells Fargo Bank. Donations should be made out to: Adopt A Greyhound Atlanta - A/C#1348111269. Please write "DONATION" on your check. Donations can be taken direct to any Wells Fargo Bank or mailed to: AAGA, 4815 Annistown Road, Stone Mountain, GA 30087. Any amount, no matter how small, will go far in helping us recoup from this devastating loss.
For those who might be interested, at Jen Komatsu's facebook page, there is currently going on a "Greyhound Auction", with all proceeds coming to AAGA. (There is a lot of really neat "stuff" available there to bid on!)
