Nevada Greyhounds Unlimited is a local non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving permanent homes for ex-racing greyhounds. We do not have our own kennel, but work with several other rescue groups that bring the greyhounds off the track and prepare them for adoption. We talk to prospective adopters, take in applications, conduct home visits, and then process applications through the adoption agencies that we work with. Most of the greyhounds we place are from the Caliente racetrack in Tijuana, Mexico or from Phoenix, Arizona.
We sponsor many events throughout the year that serve both to educate the public and to help us meet people who are interested in adopting greyhounds. We welcome volunteers, with or without greyhounds. There are no membership fees for joining our organization.
We have many wonderful volunteers that help us with everything from writing our newsletter to helping us with all our Meet N Greets and social functions. Many of our greyhounds are trained as Pet Therapy dogs and we even have a couple of them that are certified as Service Dogs.
We would like to extend a special welcome to greyhound owners who are new to Northern Nevada, and we invite you to come by and meet us at our next event.
