|WELCOME TO GREYHOUND PETS OF AMERICA- SPRINGFIELD, MO!|
Join us for an afternoon of fun!
Greyhound Pets of America-Springfield, MO is a volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing information about and promoting adoption of retired racing greyhounds. We also promote cooperation with other adoption programs nationwide to further the placement of greyhounds as pets into responsible loving homes.
Alane Shultz is the founder of the local GPA chapter and has had retired racing greyhounds as pets for 30 years. She has facilitated greyhound adoptions since 1992.
Greyhounds are clean, quiet and have no hereditary health problems. Their exercise requirements are surprisingly low - they prefer to curl up and have you pet them! Loving and loyal, your greyhound is your fast friend for life!

"Steve & I wanted to see if we could raise a little bit of money for the greyhounds and GPAMO..." – Heidi Carlsen Rogers
Local artist Heidi Carlsen Rogers, one of our adopters in Bella Vista, Arkansas, has made a unique opportunity available for the benefit of GPAMO. Heidi writes, "Steve & I wanted to see if we could raise a little bit of money for the greyhounds and GPAMO for the holidays. We partnered on an art project and came up with shooting some black and white art prints called Studio Dogs. They are posted on my Etsy art site. Hoping our greyhound models can help their hound friends! We will donate 100% of proceeds to GPAMO."
Wouldn't these make wonderful gifts?
