About Us

“Helping Hounds. Fulfilling Dreams.”

Allies for GreyhoundsAllies for Greyhounds of West Michigan, Inc. was founded on October 27, 2006. Since then we have placed over 1100 retired racing greyhounds into loving forever homes.  As our group grew and we began placing greyhounds not only in multiple states but in Canada as well, we discovered that we were much larger than West Michigan. In the Spring of 2013, we received approval to formally change our name to Allies for Greyhounds, Inc.  We are the same all volunteer family oriented group that we were, but our change in name reflects how large our family has become.

Visit the events page and join us at one of our many events each week.

Mission Statement: Allies for Greyhounds, Inc. retrieves greyhounds bred for racing.  We look out for the welfare of greyhounds, finding homes for them where they may live out their natural lives as pets.  We also work to educate the public about their qualities as pets and their care.   Allies for Greyhounds is a Racing PROud adoption group.
