About Us

Wheeling Island Greyhound Adoption Center is an organization dedicated to finding loving homes for Greyhounds. Through community service work, volunteers raise public awareness that these purebred ex-racing dogs make excellent, loving pets and that they are available for adoption into qualified homes.

There are thousands of Greyhounds in the United States who are waiting for homes because they do not qualify for racing or are retired from racing.

The mission of our all-volunteer organization is to educate the public about the suitability of Greyhounds as house pets and to find loving forever homes for Greyhounds.
