Who We Are

In memory of John Hern, Founder of Greyhound Pets, Inc.

Welcome to Greyhound Pets, Inc. We are a section 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by John A. Hern, Jr. and established in 1985 to find homes for retired racing greyhounds. To date we have placed more than 5,700 of these wonderful dogs throughout Puget Sound, the Pacific Northwest and Canada.

Since we restrict the placement of our greyhounds to the Washington and British Columbia areas only, if you are out of our area, we encourage you to find a local adoption group at The Greyhound Project Inc. Thank you for visiting our site.
