Greyhounds come in all colors and ages and are gentle, loving, intelligent dogs. The greyhound is the oldest domesticated breed of dog and was the once the pet, hunting dog, and friend of the ancient Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, and the Medieval European Aristocracy. Please consider adopting one of our senior Greyhounds.


Greyhound Friends of New Jersey holds many "Meet and Greets" throughout NJ where those interested in Greyhounds can meet them in person. Please visit our Events page on our web site to see where we'll be next.

Who We Are

Greyhound Friends of NJ (GFNJ) is a non-profit organization dedicated to placing retired racing greyhounds into responsible, loving homes. While GFNJ is predominantly a greyhound adoption group, it will also help some non-greyhounds in need of rescue from high-risk situations by providing them monetary support and/or a safe haven.

Adopting a friend

The adoption process begins when you have made the final decision that a greyhound is the dog for you. We ask you to fill out an application giving us some information about your lifestyle-children, other pets, time away from home, fenced in yard, etc. We require that $25.00 of the $300.00 adoption donation (new fee effective 5/1/16) be included with the application. The $25.00 deposit is non-refundable. The information you provide on the application helps us to find a dog which will be a good match for your home. There is a reduced adoption fee for dogs over 7 years old. Please visit our web site to learn more about the adoption process and the Most Frequently Asked Questions -
