GPA Greater NW is a non profit 501(c)3 organization, dedicated to placing retired racing Greyhounds into homes through out the Greater Northwest. We are an all volunteer organization, our primary focus is the care and placement of all Greyhounds, regardless of age, colors or even in some cases medical needs into the right loving forever homes.
GPA Greater NW transports Greyhounds from racing tracks and breed farms all over the United States. Prior to adoption, all Greyhounds are placed into foster homes with our volunteers, where their personalities are evaluated to determine which dogs are suitable as only pets or for homes that may have children or other small and large pets. Great care is taken to match the right Greyhound with the right home environment.
All Greyhounds are spayed or neutered; vaccinated (including rabies); treated for ticks, fleas, worms; had their teeth cared for and given a thorough physical examination by a veterinarian.
Our volunteers have years of experience with Greyhounds as well as being Greyhound owners themselves. Please browse through the links located on the left hand side to learn more about the wonderful world of Greyhounds. You will find a brief history of the breed, resources to learn more about Greyhounds requirements for adoption, our calendar of events where volunteers coordinate "Meet & Greets" at locations throughout our regional areas, family photos of adopted Greyhounds as well as a link to our email chat group.
