Who We Are:

Greyhound Friends, Inc. is a non-profit organization located in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, dedicated to saving racetrack greyhounds and placing them in responsible, loving homes. While we are predominantly a greyhound adoption group, we also help some non-greyhounds rescued from kill shelters or other high-risk situations in other parts of the country, where their chances for adoption are slim. Greyhound Friends was founded on Mother's Day 1983 and has been serving the community and rescuing dogs for thirty years.

Adopting from Greyhound Friends

For information regarding our adoption process, please visit At any given time in the kennel there are 20 beautiful greyhounds and other mixed breed dogs ready and waiting to be adopted. We encourage you to visit the kennel any day of the week between 9AM - 5PM. The adoption of a greyhound from Greyhounds Friends is a carefully structured process. We work hard to ensure we place greyhounds in homes that are very well-matched and compatible. The safety and well being of the greyhounds is of the utmost and prime importance for the organization and our staff. There is an adoption fee of $250 with each adopted dog which helps offset the costs of neutering, vaccination, transportation, boarding, and additional expenditures such as extended veterinary care to dogs rescued from tracks with broken limbs and other racing injuries. All adoptions include a new leash, collar, transitional food, veterinary and training references, and a loaner crate upon request.
