This site is dedicated to greyhounds. Here you will find information about
greyhounds, caring for greyhounds, and greyhound adoption. We offer good
solid information and a few photographs. Enjoy!
Application Available Online
Our application is available online. Unfortunately we are currently not taking applications for homes that have cats or other small (non-dog) pets due to the difficulty
in obtaining cat-safe dogs. Please see the Application Process
for a link to our application.
Won't you please consider joining us and supporting us at an information
table or a parade? Our civic events are enjoyable for us,
but they are also a valuable tool for introducing our greyhounds to the general
public. This is critically important in our effort to find new homes for these
wonderful pets so that we can share the unique gift
of a greyhound's love and devotion with more families. We need your help to make
these events a success! Just donating several hours of your time once or twice
a year can be a HUGE help. Please see Upcoming Events
for a list of our currently scheduled events.

Remember pets during disaster planning
Grey-Save encourages pet owners to have a disaster plan in place to care for
their pets in the event your area is evacuated. Here in Erie we tend to feel
safe and secure from the major disasters we see on television. We often fail to
recognize the risk posed by the transportation of hazardous chemicals on our
roadways and railways, an active earthquake zone in Ashtabula County and Lake
Erie, the possibility of tornados (the Albion tornado was an F-4), the potential
loss of power for weeks due to ice storms, or the Perry Nuclear Power Plant to
our west. You may not have time to develop and implement a plan should a
disaster occur. You may only have minutes to make decisions that will affect
your family and pets before local communications systems fail. Having a plan in
place in advance for your entire family including your pets is a sound idea.
Please contact Alan at 814-825-7825 if you have questions or would like some
guidance in this area.
