KYG Events Calendar



Get your applications in so that we can get your home visits approved. Then you can be ready to adopt from our next group of hounds to come to KyG, arriving Aug 30, 2019.



KyG got 5 retired racing greyhounds on Aug 30th from one of the tracks whose closure was recently announced, Sanford Orlando Kennel Club. Our hounds were planned for in advance of the announcement of the closure. It was good that we could be there to get some amazing hounds who had recently been on the track. KyG is please to have gotten 4 males and a female. They are all 3 or 4 years old. Please see our availability page for their pictures for updates on their availablity - 2 have found their forever homes. Could one of the remaining 3 be the hound for you? Also check out our Facebook page (link on the left for KyGreyhounds page or KyGreyhound Friends group). 


Do you want to be a foster parent or a permanent parent to a retired racing greyhound? The adoption application can be found under Greyt Info or clicking here: Adoption Application 

We know that time is coming with the closing of the Florida tracks as well as the other hounds across the country that also still need homes. Fewer greyhounds are available at the moment. The expected "phase out" period regulators expected is not happening. What this means... fewer greyhounds available for adoption now... and nearing Dec. 2020 thousands are expected. Southland Greyhound track in West Memphis Arkansas has announced the end of live greyhound racing be concluded by end of 2022.

We use the same criteria whether you want to foster or adopt, in case you decide you want to adopt your foster. We appreciate our foster families and need more to help more hounds find homes. We have prior foster families that are willing to discuss the joys of fostering: teaching a track dog "regular" life, meeting new people, basic commands, and yes the rewards (and sadness) of knowing a job well done when it is time for the greyhound to go to their permanent home. 

If you cannot find the time and room in your home please consider making a donation. The "Donate Now" paw print can lead you to make donations through our PayPal account using for the email, checks can be mailed too and visit our Facebook page - KyGreyhounds or our group KyGreyhounds Friends for more information. Do not be confused with the PayPal path as Kentucky Greyhounds Placement is a dba of Pet Action Leauge. All donations go to support greyhounds in their quest for homes. Thank you. 




Plan now for July 18 - 19, 2020

The 3rd Annual Greyt Fest is now in the books. We had a lot of fun planning, working and visiting during the event. We also had some greyt suggestions from vendors and guests. Changes are in the works to make the event even Greyt-er for the 4th Annual Greyt Fest July 18 - 19, 2020. 

Hounds, and people hove honored us from IL, IN, MO, NC, NY, OH, SC, TN, TX,  WI, WV, and of course KY. Whether you were a guest, a vendor or a volunteer a big THANK YOU to ALL of you. It was greyt seeing old friends and making new ones. It has been a while since a festival event was held in this area and the smiles on peoples faces showed it was greyt fun. Please help us to spread the word. Some seemed to find out a little too late last year.
