As a non-profit
organization, we rely on the selfless help of volunteers and donated funds or items. To
enable Greyhound Pets, Inc. to achieve its goals for finding good homes for retired racing
greyhounds, and to look out for their welfare, the organization requires volunteers to
participate in any of the following adoption activities:
Moira Corrigan - 206-718-0475
- Booth Activities: Requires spending 2-3 hours on Saturday or Sunday at a booth in
a pet store near you to promote the greyhounds, hand out literature and provide
information about the adoption program. Check out the latest schedule
for our booth activities.
- Fostering Greyhounds: We periodically need foster homes for dogs
awaiting their forever homes. In order to foster you must have or have had
- Transporting Dogs: Local help in transporting dogs from their foster homes to
booths or from the kennel to booths or to the vet for their spay or neuter surgery is
greatly welcomed too.
- Kennel Turnout: This process involves letting the dogs in the
kennel out at turnout time, loving on them,
brushing them, making sure they get some exercise, and helping us to get to
know the dogs better. Turnout takes approximately an hour to an hour and a
half (depending upon how many dogs are in the kennel). The kennel is
located in Woodinville, WA.
Come and walk some of the
kennel dogs. A great way to share your time and dog handling skills to
help the pups learn more about life outside their kennel life. Contact
Chris Nooney for more

- Dog Food Donation: As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on donated dog
food to feed the dogs in the kennel and in foster homes. If you know of a source where dog
food is donated to rescue organizations, we would appreciate the information or your
assistance in transporting the dog food to our kennels. Contact:
