Come out and meet adoptable greyhounds and fellow greyhounds at these upcoming events!

Heard on Hurd (downtown Edmond) Saturday June 15th from 6pm to 10pm. Come out and meet some retired racers! We also invite all of you who have adopted to show off your hound and visit with people on how wonderful they are!

Greyt Global Walk - Sunday, September 29, 2024 at Scissortail Park- more information to come.

Adopt your favorite hound today!

Hounds of the Heartland is run by volunteers and we are in need of more! Volunteers help with transport to vet appointments, pick up a foster to attend a meet and greet, and even picking up dogs coming in from Australia in Dallas! 

We are also in need of foster homes without cats. This is a wonderful opportunity to take these retired racers from the track to their forever home! It can be hard to let them go, but we do a greyt job of making sure they are going into loving homes who make them part of the family! We provide a crate, bedding, toys and food. The fosters are vetted and kept on heartworm preventive. If you are interested, please fill out either a volunteer/foster application.

Retired racing greyhounds make great pets.

About Us

Hounds of the Heartland is an incorporated, 501-(c)(3) not for profit group under the national direction of Greyhound Pets of America.

Hounds of the Heartland of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is a non-profit humane greyhound adoption organization dedicated to finding loving, responsible homes for both retired racing greyhounds and for young greyhounds not placed on the race track. Our aim is to let the public know what excellent, loving pets these noble dogs make.

We wanted to let you know, beginning this year, Hounds of the Heartland is changing some of our adoption guidelines.

Due to the national shortage of adoptable greyhounds with closings of tracks and farms, we will only work applications in the Oklahoma City metro areas to include: Bethany, Edmond, Moore, Norman, Mustang, Piedmont, Warr Acres and Yukon.

Because of this delay, we ask for your patience with the adoption application process. Please know, applications can take weeks to find the right dog for your home. Applications with cats, can take even longer.

Hounds of the Heartland will no longer adopt to families living in apartments, or without a fenced in yard.

Thank you for your continued support and love of these magnificent creatures!

Happy Tails
