Our organization works hard to find homes for retired greyhound racers and to educate the public about what amazing pets they make. We rely on volunteer efforts and donations to keep our organization vital.
Please consider volunteering (and make new friends!) or making a donation.
Amazing Greys Retired Racers is a volunteer run organization.
Our volunteers take part in a variety of activities. Some talk about greyhounds to people at meet & greets, while others do everything from transporting new dogs to our main foster home to bathing and feeding. There really is an activity to fit most peoples' schedules and interests.
If you would like to volunteer, please send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch with you right away.
If you don't see your special niche but would still like to help, please let us know what you can do!
Foster a Greyhound
Provide a safe home for a dog during the transition from track life to life as a pet. Our fosters provide daily care for a dog, such as feeding, exercise, and vet care (reimbursed). We provide you with the training you need to feel comfortable helping these greyt animals adjust to home life.
Foster dogs live with us until placement, which is typically a few weeks. At the moment, the average length of time a dog stays in a foster home is two weeks. The shortest is a single day, when a dog goes home immediately with a pre-approved adopter. The longest has been a matter of months in the case of a dog recovering from an injury.
Fostering is crucial to our success. If you would like to help save a greyhound's life, please apply.
Our application process includes telephone screening, a home visit, and reference checks. Volunteers can help with many aspects of the application screening.
Our adoption fee does not cover our costs, so we must fundraise! Fundraising allows us to provide the best of care for our foster dogs. It also pays for advertising, medication, crates, collars and leads. Help us plan and implement fundraising events and donation drives.
Amazing Greys Retired Racers is a fantastic organization and we need volunteers to help us get the word out through public relations and advertising campaigns.
From picking up dogs from hauls, to ordering supplies, there are plenty of operational functions vital to keeping things running smoothly. Volunteers are needed to: write routine correspondence, pickup donated items, coordinate veterinary care, assist in transporting dogs, and much, much more!
Adoption does not end our involvement with greyhounds we place. We stay in touch with adopters to ensure happy endings for our dogs.
Volunteers do routine check-ins and provide support and guidance to adopters by email and phone.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us. We are always thrilled to meet others and share our love of greyhounds!
