The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is to find homes for Retired Racing Greyhounds so that they may have a wonderful life after the track.
Team Greyhound Adoption of Ohio, Inc. is a non-profit group placing retired racing greyhounds into adoption in many parts of Ohio. Since 1999, we have placed over 1700 retired racers into loving adoptive homes!
The racers that we place are trained in Ohio prisons for a minimum of a month prior to adoption. This training assists with a more secure match with the adoptive families through their training in socialization, basic obedience, and house manners. The racers reside in foster homes after graduation from their training program, where they have an opportunity to be shown at meet-n-greets in our branches throughout Ohio. At any given time we have between 10-20 greyhounds available for adoption allowing choices of a variety of temperaments, sizes, and colors. All appropriate veterinary care including altering, vaccinations, worming, and micro-chipping has been given to each greyhound we take in.
Team Greyhound is an all Volunteer organization. We have no paid help and rely solely on volunteers and donations to cover expenses in the placement of the greyhounds. Our volunteers, area representatives, Board of Trustees and officers make Team Greyhound such a huge success! If you are interested in volunteering and helping out these beautiful Greyhounds, please send us a message.
