Welcome to adopt-a-greyhound.org, the official website of The Greyhound Project

The mission of The Greyhound Project is to promote the welfare and adoption of greyhounds by providing support and information to adoption organizations, adopters, and the public.

We have assembled tons of information to help you learn more about them, so please take a moment to explore our site. Hopefully, you'll join the thousands of people who have discovered that their adopted friend is one of the nicest and most affectionate pets they've ever had.

We can also help you find out where you can adopt one.


January 2021 -- After a year long, worldwide search for an impartial and financially sound group, The Greyhound Project’s board unanimously accepted Greyhound Adoption League of Texas’s (GALT) kind offer to continue carrying out our mission under our name. GALT shares our commitment to remaining neutral on the subject of greyhound racing, and they are committed to supporting ALL adoption organizations to benefit the dogs. We ask that you join us in offering your full support of their efforts as they continue publishing Celebrating Greyhounds calendars, maintaining the worldwide directory of adoption organizations, and promoting April's National Adopt-A-Greyhound month.

With the close of Florida's tracks in December, GALT and other groups are working tirelessly to feed and pay the medical expenses of dogs waiting for homes. Please support your local adoption group (check our agency listings to find a group near you). Getting the dogs from Florida to groups that can rehome them is an expensive process, and your local adoption group is the place to begin. Donate funds, foster, and/or adopt. Ask them what they need. It will take all of us pitching in together to get these dogs safely to their couches.


Pandemic shortages currently affect several components of the publishing and delivery of the 2022 calendar. The paper used is in very short supply. Our printing company secured a sufficient quantity, but it has resulted in a delay. All printing supplies are showing a 50% price increase.  The 2022 CG calendars may now be ordered BY GROUPS ONLY* at the Greytstore at GALTX.org. We estimate shipping will begin in mid-September. The price increase for printing and shipping via USPS media rate has resulted in a price increase to the groups, and we have worked to keep it to a minimum. 

*Sales are limited to groups right now (minimum purchase of 10), and we encourage you to purchase from your group. We sell them directly to the public late in the year.   

Photo submission guidelines for 2023 are here. The Greyhound Project and GALT produce calendars as a fundraiser for adoption groups, and about 10,000 are purchased annually. Each photo caption identifies the dog, the adopter, and the agency.  We send a free calendar if one of your photos is featured.

Published from 1996 through 2017, each issue of Celebrating Greyhounds contained more than 50 beautifully designed pages of feature stories, humor, poetry, and photographs exploring the many ways these dogs are integrated into our lives. We're pleased to announce that all 21 years of back issues are now available online in their entirety.
