We can never have too many foster homes. If you can provide a loving foster home for a recently retired racing greyhound,

please contact us.


​​​​​​​Cassie, a greyhound who had escaped from her foster home five years ago and was captured by MCGA volunteers several months ago, is being treated for a severe case of heartworm disease. As this is an expensive treatment, donations are greatly appreciated. ​In addition to donating through this website (designate "for Cassie"), we also have a GoFundMe page. We are very grateful for everyone who has contributed to Cassie's care. More information about Cassie and updates on her health can be found on the "Special Needs" page and on MCGA's Facebook page.

Congratulations to our May/June Adopters!



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.

You won't often see a greyhound sit. Due to their body structure, it is generally uncomfortable for them.

Greyhounds are generally calm dogs and often make great therapy dogs.

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.

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

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.

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.


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.

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.
