|WELCOME TO GREYHOUND PET ADOPTION SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI!|
Greyhound Pet Adoption Springfield MO is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides information, education, promotion of adoption and 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. We believe not only doing the best we can adopting Greyhounds in the Ozarks but also assisting groups in areas that are so overwhelmed with huge numbers of Greyhounds to help that they must be transported to other adoption programs throughout the US.
Alane Shultz is the founder of GPAMO and has had retired racing greyhounds as pets for 34 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!
Bark & Brew Fest is one of the most popular events of the year - come join us for this fun afternoon!
FUNDRAISING SEASON IS HERE!
We have fantastic fundraisers going on now that will give you some fun rewards while you help the hounds! Take a look at these greyt offers!

MID CENTURY GREYHOUND TV LAMP FUNDRAISER
We're happy to announce that the winner of the Greyhound TV Lamp is L. Stringer of Chicago. Congratulations! Thank you to everyone who donated to our Greyhound TV Lamp Fundraiser - we gained $150 for the care of our beautiful Greyhounds. Watch for more fundraisers coming soon!
Buddy, who raced as "Quirky Bedlam", is 6 years old and a very friendly boy. He would do well with cats, other dogs, and kids; but Buddy really needs another dog as a friend in his new home. He's well behaved in the house and is an all around sweet guy.
