Greyhound Friends is a Hopkinton based, 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to the welfare and adoption of dogs, focusing specifically on greyhounds. The organization was founded in 1983. Its office and shelter have been located at its present site on Saddle Hill Road in Hopkinton, MA for over 30 years.
In addition to operating the greyhound adoption kennel, Greyhound Friends’ mission also includes informing and educating the public about greyhounds and other breeds, promoting responsible pet ownership, and generally doing whatever is necessary to prevent cruelty to animals. Consistent with this mission, over the past 35 years Greyhound Friends has grown to include a community of staff, volunteers, adopters, greyhound rehoming advocates, and dog welfare supporters working locally, nationally, and internationally. Through the dedicated efforts of its staff, volunteers, and supporters, the organization has rehomed over 10,000 dogs.
