Our Mission

Greyhound Pets of America LA/MS places greyhounds throughout Louisiana and Mississippi through a dedicated, active network of placement representatives. Our trained placement representatives provide pre-adoption education, screening, counseling, post-adoption support, and assistance to our adopters. Before going to a new 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.
