Finding Homes for Retired Racing Greyhounds

THANK YOU FOR YOUR

DONATION TO MCGA

Your donations enable us to improve the lives of those greyhounds already in our care and help save the lives of more greyhounds in the future. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, all donations to MCGA are tax-deductible.

The average weight of a greyhound:

Female: 50-65 pounds, Male: 65-80 pounds

The average age of a retired racing greyhound is between two and five years old. The average lifespan is twelve to fourteen years.

Meet and Greets

A meet & greet is a wonderful opportunity to learn about retired racing greyhounds. We invite you to stop by and meet these beautiful dogs. 

​​​​​​​​Fostering 

We rely on foster homes to acclimate the dogs to life off the track. If you are interested in fostering a greyhound, please complete our Foster Application.

MCGA Treasurer Lou Lewis and her retired racing greyhound "Petey" provide pet therapy to the veterans at the VA hospital in Murfreesboro. On a recent visit, one of the veterans wanted to read a story to Petey from his Guideposts magazine. The title of the story was "We Will Survive" and the veteran said, "Petey, you are helping me to do that." Lou wrote, "Today, once again, we were reminded how important it is to touch the hearts of so many and feel the power of love." Great job, Petey and Lou!

OUR MISSION

At Music City Greyhound Adoption, our mission is to place retired racing greyhounds in dedicated, loving homes. We will support their families after adoption and educate the public about these wonderful companions.

Adoption Process

If you have made the decision that a greyhound is the right breed for you, we invite you to fill out our Adoption Application. Our goal is to ensure that we enable the best match for both you and the retired racer. 

Special Needs

The Jean Marie Webb

Memorial Fund was created in memory of a greyhound adopter

to help us take on the financial burden of helping greyhounds with special needs.

Music City Greyhound Adoption is a group of volunteers dedicated to finding homes for greyhounds who have completed their careers on the track. We strive to place each dog in a loving, forever home. We look forward to helping you find the greyt companion you are seeking.

Fast Facts About GREyhounds

Robyn & Daniel Peters adopted Slatex Cliff "Cliff"

Greyhounds can reach speeds of up to 45 mph. They are sprinters, not long-distance runners.

Due to their body structure, it can be uncomfortable for greyhounds to sit; they generally prefer to stand or lie down.


Greyhounds are usually calm and quiet  and often make great therapy dogs.

Greyhounds come in a large variety of colors. There is actually no "grey" color; the official color for a grey-ish coat is "blue".
