Philadelphia Greyhound Connection, Inc. is a PA Non-Profit
501(c)3 Corp. We assist in the re-homing of retired racing Greyhounds. We hope to find as many forever homes as possible for
these wonderful dogs. Retired, injured or "slow" Greyhounds make wonderful pets.
PGC is an all volunteer group that was founded in December
2003. Unlike other Greyhound adoption organizations, all PGC Greyhounds are put into loving foster homes,
not kennels. Thanks to our foster families, we are able to better understand the Greyhounds personality. They are taught house
manners, stairs and trust among other things.
Our adoption donation is $275. That covers spay/neuter,
teeth cleaning, current vaccinations and heartworm check. You will also receive a PGC Care Booklet, Greyhound Health Booklet,
martingale collar and lead, PGC ID tag, Rally to Rescue adoption kit, plus all the information you'll need regarding emergency
veterinary services, feeding and keeping your new Greyhound safe.
Our Greyhounds for adoption can range in age from 2 to
5 years old. We occasionally have seniors available (age 7 and up) as well as special needs dogs. Special needs include broken
leg(s), very shy, seizure dogs, etc. The life expectancy of a Greyhound is 12 to 14 years old.
Males are usually larger than the girls, 26 to 30 inches
tall and between 65 and 85 pounds, females are usually 23 to 26 inches tall and between 50 and 65 pounds. Greyhounds come in many colors, brindle, black, white, fawn, red or a combination
of these colors.
