Who We Are
Fast Friends Greyhound Rescue was founded in 1992 in West Swanzey, NH. They are a state-licensed animal shelter and non-profit (501c3) organization. Fast Friends is dedicated to educating the public about the plight of racing greyhounds and finding responsible, loving homes for greyhounds that have retired from their racing careers.
The organization relies solely on the generous donations from the public to continue their work of saving lives one greyhound at a time. In turn, they give back to the community by offering education and training to the public, community groups, and other animal welfare organizations.
Fast Friends also offers all breed doggie daycare, boarding, a spa offering baths and nail clipping, and more coming soon. Fast Friends and Keene Doggy Daycamp are located at 14 West Swanzey Road in Swanzey, NH (across from Market Basket). For more information, please visit our website: www.helpinggreyhounds.org or www.KeeneDoggyDaycamp.com. You can also call (603) 355-1556 or email email@example.com.
Adopting a friend
Ex-racers make great pets!
Greyhounds placed through Fast Friends are usually between two and five years old. They are intelligent, highly adaptable dogs that easily adjust to their new home environment in one to two months. These greyhounds have been raised in a kennel environment, so life in a home with people is a completely new experience. New owners of a retired racer must be patient and willing to help their greyhound adjust to life after the track.
Greyhounds are quiet, clean, gentle, affectionate, friendly, eager to please dogs. They get along well with children and other animals (including cats). Ex-racers are grateful for their new homes, bond with others, and reward their new owners with constant affection.
Contrary to popular belief, greyhounds do not require a great deal of space to run, but they do need regular exercise. A twenty-minute walk once a day is adequate. Ex-racers are very schedule-oriented because of their life at the track. Adhering to a normal schedule of feeding and exercise is very important. Inside the house, greyhounds especially enjoy having a soft spot of their own, such as a blanket or a pet bed.
Stop by and meet our adoptable greyhounds any day from 11am -3 pm.!
