Retired Racing Greyhound Adoptions

Greyhounds make wonderful household pets. They’re smart, calm and graceful creatures who thrive on love, giving their forever homes a lifetime of unconditional love and affection.

The purpose of Greyhound Pets of America Emerald Coast (GPAEC) is to find responsible loving homes for Greyhounds, to acquaint the public with the desirability of Greyhounds as pets, and to provide information about the availability of Greyhounds for adoption.

March 2022 News Release

Thank you for your interest in adopting a greyhound. Florida greyhound racing tracks were the primary source for our (GPAEC’s) adoptable greyhounds. A constitutional amendment ended greyhound racing in the State of Florida in 2020, which, in turn, ended our Florida source of adoptable greyhounds. We continue to serve as a safety net for any previously adopted racing greyhounds, and those that may need rehoming.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering a greyhound, please contact one of these organizations:
