Welcome to Greyhound Friends of North Carolina

Our mission is to provide adoption services for retired racing Greyhounds, provide for their health and welfare, educate the public about the availability and desirability of greyhounds as pets and place them through adoption into loving homes. 

The kennel is full of Greyt greyhounds ready for visitation and adoption.  Check the posted pictures and you are invited to visit the kennel!
