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








Glow or Elvis as he is now being called is a beautiful red boy who will be 3 years old on September 17, 2015.


Elvis is being fostered with additional Greyhounds. Also, other breed dogs and cats.  He will let others clean his ears and not fuse at all.


He  is well adjusted to living in a home, excellent house manners, loves to eat, will play with toys and sleep through the night.


The only catch is you must have patience as Elvis will be shy at first but that won't last forever. 


If you are thinking of adding a family member or just needing a companion give Elvis a look.  You will be pleasantly surprised.


Will you be the lucky family that gives this boy a loving forever home?


Greyhounds make wonderful companions. 


Greyhound Rescue Foundation of Tennessee is a State Chartered not-for-profit all volunteer organization whose mission is five fold:

1) To educate the general public about the availability and suitability of retired racing Greyhounds as pets.

2) To medically treat each Greyhound that comes into our program, including but not limited to spay/neuter, dental, all shots, heartworm test, and any other treatment deemed needed.

3) To find loving and qualified homes for all Greyhounds entrusted to us.

4) To offer ongoing support to those who adopt Greyhounds.

5) To promote harmony and cooperation between all segments of the worldwide Greyhound community.
