ABOUT US

ABOUT US

   Greyhound Pets For Life was officially founded in 2019 by a small group of Greyhound owners, who saw a need for public education, and promotion of retired racing greyhounds.

   With the assistance of Greyhound Angels WA, we have been able to interact with our hounds in a positive way with the public, in order to dispel common myths and falsehoods regarding the breed.

   Our Aim is simple, to promote adoption, fostering and rehoming of retired racing greyhounds. Our group promotes all greyhound adoption groups throughout WA and does not support nor condemn the racing industry.

   We provide current information regarding adoption and fostering requirements from all groups, and encourage prospective owners to be aware of the sighthound specific tendencies, behaviours and current legalities.
