Keystone Greyhounds is non profit organization dedicated to finding responsible homes for retired racing Greyhounds. We are an all volunteer group based in South Central Pa. Our goal is to place the right hound in the right home and to promote public awareness about what excellent, loving pets these noble dogs make.

Keystone Greyhounds depends on tax deductible donations, fees from adoptions, sales of Greyhound related merchandise, membership and various money-raising events to fund our adoption activities. The cost of membership is $25 annually and includes a decal, subscription to our newsletter, "The Needle Nose News" and invitations to participate in many Keystone events held throughout the year. To become a member, volunteer or to contribute to Keystone Greyhounds, please contact any of the Keystone Adoption Representatives listed on the Contact Us Page. 



The primary purpose of Keystone Greyhounds is to find responsible loving homes for greyhounds, which fail to qualify or no longer qualify for the racetrack. KG acquaints the public with the desirability of greyhounds as pets and informs them of the availability of these dogs for adoption. We work with the greyhound industry to closely match the dogs to the adopter. Keystone Greyhounds provide pre and post adoption education and support each adoption fully. We also encourage adoption of senior and other special-needs dogs.
