ADOPT A GREYHOUND ATLANTA, INC., Atlanta’s oldest Greyhound rescue group, is 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.
GREYS’LAND is a unique shelter. It is a real home in Stone Mountain, Georgia, where our adoptable Greyhounds live with AAGA’s founder, Carl Viener, and receive personalized care and human attention 24/7.
White ”picket fence“ pens with comfy pet cots (and gates frequently left unlatched to provide free roam of the facility) line a bright sunny ”Greyhound family room“ with large-screen TV and open to a full kitchen with mini-bar stocked with doggy treats. Several times a day the Greys romp outdoors with their canine friends through acres of large fenced-in wooded yards. This lifestyle results in Greyhounds who are happy and well socialized, generally house-trained, and readily adaptable to a new permanent home.
Prior to visiting Greys’Land, we suggest that you complete our online Adoption Application form. This form does not obligate you to anything. What it does do is 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.
