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











Susie Q as she has been call has found herself back in foster care through no fault of her own.


Susie was in her home a couple years when an underground fence was installed.  One she had been shocked she would no longer go out in the yard.  She was terrified and began to have accidents in the house.


A GRFT family picked Susie Q and was not sure what kind of yard/house problems they might encounter.  She was thrilled to go out into the fenced yard, no more fear and no more potty problems. 


Are you the family for Susie Q?  For more information just give us a call.
