Greyhound Friends of North Carolina (GFNC) – a 501(c)(3) nonprofit – is an established adoption agency providing retired racing greyhounds a path to lifelong placement into loving homes, ensuring their health and welfare, and educating the public about greyhounds as pets. We support and endorse relationships with organizations and groups which practice humane and ethical treatment of their dogs.
Beginning July 2019, GFNC is a foster only adoption group; we do not have a kennel. Our greyhounds go into private foster homes, which allow us to assess them individually in a home environment. This also gives them a head start in their transition and adjustment to home living, such as housetraining, sliding glass doors, tile floors, the television, stairs and other animals.
