Greyhound Pets of America
Tampa Bay


Welcome to Greyhound Pets of America/Tampa Bay

Our mission is to find homes for ex-racing Greyhounds and to educate the public about this wonderful breed. We cover the greater Tampa Bay area, including Pinellas, Hillsborough, Hernando & northern Manatee counties.

Adopt a Greyhound and make a Fast Friend!

We are an all-volunteer, nonprofit chapter of Greyhound Pets of America, and we're here to help you find your new, best four legged friend. In addition, we are always here to provide support and information to our adopters.

We have many volunteer opportunities and fundraising events throughout the year that give our greyhound owners a chance to show off their hounds, help educate the public about greyhounds, and to socialize with other greyhound owners. We love adding members to our Greyhound Pets of America/Tampa Bay family.
