Mission Statement

It is Gemini's Pampered Greyhounds' Mission to promote greyhound adoption by finding responsible, loving, appropriate homes for greyhounds that fail to qualify for racing, regardless of their age and health condition. GPG will arrange for and provide all necessary medical care, including ensuring all greyhounds/retired racers are spayed/neutered before they are adopted and will gradually transition greyhounds from their racing career to retirement and placement into a forever home. GPG will arrange temporary volunteer (foster) homes for greyhounds while they are waiting for their adoption by forever homes/families. Furthermore, it is GPG's mission to provide retired racers with socialization and training to prepare them for adoption. In addition to the care and adoption of the greyhounds, it is GPG's mission to assist, instruct, and educate the public and adoptive families about the greyhound breed, responsible pet ownership, and overall care, treatment, and training of greyhounds.


Gemini's Pampered Greyhounds, Inc. (GPG), is a 501c(3) non-profit Greyhound adoption group, based in Amherst MA. It is GPG's Mission to promote Greyhound adoption by finding responsible, loving, appropriate homes for retired racing greyhounds. Our aim is to raise public awareness about greyhounds by giving the public an opportunity to meet others who have adopted greyhounds, to learn more about the breed, and to find out what wonderful companions and furkids this breed becomes when they retire from their racing career.

It is a great place, and the person who runs it truly cares about the dogs and their well-being. It is a small non-profit shelter so all the dogs get the love and attention they deserve until they find their "fur-ever" homes.
