We're Greyhound Rescue of Tennessee, and we want to thank you for taking a minute to visit us. We are an all-volunteer greyhound rescue and adoption group. It is our belief that racing greyhounds should not be overlooked, but rather placed into loving, responsible homes at the end of their careers. Our mission is to inform the public about the retired racers, show them to be the beautiful, gentle animals that they are, and make a difference in the lives of as many retired racers as possible. We believe that racing greyhounds deserve every chance to become a treasured family member at the end of their careers, and we will strive to provide the best possible homes for them.


If you're interested in adopting or would like to donate your time, talent, or supplies please contact us HERE.


We appreciate your interest in GRFT, and hope you stop by again soon.

In Memory of those we have Known, Loved and Lost





We are featuring two of our super seniors this go around. 




Naula is a young 9 year old that came back into foster care after being in a home since February 2010.  Her family decided to move north and thought eventually they might go into a senior community where they couldn't have a large dog.  Naula is the perfect foster, great with small dogs, walks super on a leash, a dream in the home and the perfect lady.  She likes to play, cuddle, watch TV and sleep all night.  What more could you ask for in a companion.






Sheba is a young lady of 8 that has had two careers and is ready for retirement with a family that enjoys walks, snuggles, a wild romp in the yard and quiet time with the family.  Sheba is being fostered with cats and tested small dog tolerant.    Sheba would be a great companion to any family that could open their hearts to a young senior with lots of love to give.



Fostered by   Naula is with Liz & Dave near Crossville


Fostered  by   Sheba is with Karen in the Tri Cities


Small Animal Tolerant:  Yes
Status:  Both are Available
