RDRP provides an outlet for trainers, breeders,
and tracks to help place retired racers.
We are an all-volunteer, not for profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the care, rehabilitation and to finding adoptive homes for retired racing Greyhounds. We serve the Florida counties of Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSoto and beyond.
Greyhounds placed through RDRP are usually between two and five years of age.
These retired racers are very intelligent, adaptable dogs that can easily fit into a new environment following a brief adjustment period.
They are eager to please and respond positively to any attention given them. They become very attached to their new families and provide their people with many joyous years.
Our Adoption Center is located at 1801 Verna Rd. Myakka City FL 34251 and is by appointment only or our Open House the 2nd Sunday every month from 1-3 pm. Please visit us at our Saturday Meet & Greets throughout Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
Before you decide to adopt a Retired Greyhound,
please educate yourself on the breed.
Greyhounds are not your typical pet and require different care and attention than your average dog.
Visit our “Before You Adopt” page and please
