About Greyhound Pets of America/ Louisiana & Mississippi
Greyhound Pets of America is a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation founded in 1987 and is the largest single non-profit Greyhound adoption group worldwide, made up of numerous chapters. Serving Greyhounds and people throughout Louisiana and Mississippi, GPA LA/MS is staffed exclusively by volunteers who are dedicated to finding responsible, loving, permanent homes for retired racing greyhounds and younger dogs that did not become racers. In addition, GPA LA/MS provides a greyhound adoption service for SPCAs and Humane Societies throughout Louisiana and Mississippi.
GPA LA/MS places greyhounds throughout LA and MS through a dedicated, active network of placement representatives. Our trained placement representatives provide pre-adoption education, screening, and counseling, post-adoption support, and assistance to our adopters. Before going to a home as a pet, each greyhound is spayed or neutered, inoculations are updated, blood and fecal screenings are conducted and the dog’s teeth are cleaned. At the time of placement, the dog is fitted with a collar and matching leash and assigned a permanent GPA LA/MS ID tag.
