Volunteering

Volunteers are the lifeblood of GPA/N. There are myriad ways you can help us help greyhounds, including:

- Foster a greyhound that has just arrived from the track. CLICK HERE to fill out a foster application and to learn more about fostering. A printable Foster Application (PDF) is also available for download. 


- Drive your SUV or van to help pick up dogs from adoption agencies or transport broken-legged hounds to the veterinary orthopedist in Memphis.

- Sign up to help at Meet and Greets and special events.

- Identify a site for a new Meet and Greet and take the lead for its regular occurrence.

- Train to do home visits and to support new adopters.


- Pitch in with all manner of clerical tasks, telephone follow-up, proofreading, data input, etc. 


- Introduce others to greyhound adoption by taking your hound to animal-friendly events.

- Distribute signs and brochures promoting greyhound adoption at libraries, stores, your work or house of worship.

- Chair or help plan a special event such as our picnic or Winter Gathering or work at the event by taking a shift at the sign-in table, food table, help with clean up or assist with foster dogs.
