Welcome to Greyhound Welfare

Greyhound Welfare is a placement group for retired racing greyhounds. We place ex-racing greyhounds throughout the metropolitan Washington DC area (MD, VA and DC). Our goal is to make excellent placements, even if that means fewer placements.
GW'S ANNUAL PICNIC - Saturday, September 17th
Gorgeous fall weather, fellow grey-people and the awesome dogs to whom they belong, a picnic lunch you've packed with all your favorite things (no alcohol though, please! Park rules.) and the fun of grey-themed raffles and games for the dogs... you'd be hard-pressed to come up with a more fun way to spend a Saturday, admit it! We hope you'll join us for GW's Picnic on the 17th! Check out Cabin John Regional Park's site for more information on the facilities!

Greyhound Welfare recently partnered with the National Greyhound Foundation prison dog program with the arrival of 4 greyhounds in April of this year and a second arrival of 7 greyhounds in May. GW is committed to continuing in its support for this very worthwhile program as one of several sources for the retired racing greyhounds we place. For more information (and a greyt video!) check out 2nd Chance at Life. (Also, don't forget to check out our new arrivals' bios - and come back often for updates as they settle in to their foster homes!)
