Minnesota Greyhound Rescue

Inver Grove Heights, MN

Our Mission

Minnesota Greyhound Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to finding permanent, loving homes, for all Sighthounds. Our goal is to assist any Greyhound, Lurcher, Staghound, Whippet or any other Sighthound — both locally and internationally. We rescue, transport, provide medical care, adopt, and support Sighthounds in the Twin Cities, Rochester, and greater Minnesota areas. Our mission includes educating the public about the availability and suitability of Greyhounds and other Sighthound breeds as family pets.

Adoption Policy

To apply for one of our dogs, your first step is to visit our website at, and fill out our online Adoption Application.  You can see more about our procedures on the Adoption Info page of our website.  We do require that you research the breed before adopting.  We ask you to start with the information on our website, and if you think a greyhound might be a good fit for your family, to read "Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies" by Lee Livingood. 

Minnesota Greyhound Rescue charges an adoption fee which helps us to pay for spay/neuter, updated shots, heartworm test, deworming, vet check-up, microchipping, transportation from the track, leash, collar & ID tag, food while they are in our care, and lots of post-adoption support.
