Greyhound Friends is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and greyhound adoption shelter based in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. Founded in 1983, we are dedicated to placing greyhound dogs in responsible, loving adoptive homes, as well as educating the public about the breed and generally promoting animal welfare.
Consistent with this mission, over the past 35 years Greyhound Friends has grown to include a community of 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.
Thanks to the generous support of our donors and sustainers, the Greyhound Friends adoption kennel has reopened for adoptions after a comprehensive upgrade of it’s facility.
We invite prospective adopters to download and complete a Preadoption Application and schedule a visit to meet our available dogs. Please stay tuned for news, join our email list, and follow us on Facebook for the latest updates.
Contributions in any amount are greatly appreciated.
