About James River Greyhounds


James River Greyhounds is a non-profit organization dedicated to finding responsible, caring homes for retired racing greyhounds in the Central Virginia area including the Richmond Metro Area, west to the Charlottesville area, east to the Williamsburg/Newport News area, and south of the Fredericksburg area. Since 1989, we have found "forever homes" for more than 1350 greyhounds - and counting!  We are now partnered with Greyt Love Retirement (GLR) to bring even more greyhounds into the region!  GLR provides a shelter to foster greyhounds while they await their forever homes.
