Welcome to Greyhound Rescue

Thinking about getting a new pet? Why not consider a retired racing Greyhound? You will be rewarded with many years of unconditional love and complete enjoyment! Greyhound Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving, forever homes for retired racing Greyhounds. We are located in Gerrardstown, West Virginia and have adoption representatives conveniently located in Maryland; Virginia, Washington, DC, parts of Pennsylvania, and Delaware. If you are a responsible, caring person who is willing to dedicate the attention a Greyhound needs and deserves, please consider adopting one of these noble hounds through us.

Spotlight Greyhound

Ruff Patrol is on the job to ensure all the "hooligans" at the kennel stay in line :-) Seriously though, the only patrolling I do is through the kitchen to ensure no stray table snacks stay on the floor longer than necessary. I'm not really a guard dog but because I'm a big guy I do keep strangers in line.
