COVID-19 Notice

We are starting to accept out of state adoption applications, but it may take a bit longer than normal to coordinate the process.
Thank you for your understanding.

Featured Hounds

We have plenty of hounds looking for their happy homes. Please feel free to check them out! At this moment, we can ONLY accept applications from Connecticut residents. We will provide an update when this changes.

Paisley is almost 3 years old and never raced. Paisley has gone through the program with Connecticut Prison Greyhounds Inc. and is prison trained!

Love-02
Love

All you need is Love! Love is a sweet, affectionate girl who loves her humans– she’s a real love bug! Love is calm for her age, and can be a little timid at first, but settles quickly and will give you a little tail wag whenever you walk by her.

Upcoming Events

We have plenty of opportunities coming up for you to meet our adoptable dogs! Come out and say hello! We’d love to help answer any questions you may have and spread the word about what makes these dogs so greyt! Feel free to check out our Events calendar as well!
