Friends of the Hound

Account Website

The Friends of the Hound Greyhound Adoption Group is dedicated to the welfare of Greyhounds.

Our mission is to create public awareness of the Greyhound as a gentle, affectionate dog and excellent family pet, and to save and find companion homes for as many beautiful Greyhounds as possible. We advocate the ADOPTION, NOT DESTRUCTION motto.

Through a comprehensive program of promotion and education, we aim to dispel any lasting misconceptions about Greyhounds and increase public awareness of their plight. Greyhounds are not just race dogs, they make lovely family pets and companions and are suitable dogs for suburban homes and people of all ages.

Friends of the Hound Inc. is a volunteer-based, not-for-profit rescue charity, relying solely on fundraising and donations, the generosity of our local community and the efforts of our members, to achieve our aims.

All Greyhounds homed through Friends of the Hound are desexed, vaccinated and wormed, and are homed with their own warm coat, collar, lead, toy, tag and muzzle.
