Welcome to GPA/GO!
Greyhound Pets of America/Greater Orlando is a non-profit corporation founded in 1996, as a chapter of the National Greyhound Pets of America organization. Our purpose is to find homes for ex-racing Greyhounds and to educate the public on the suitability and availability of Greyhounds as pets. The GPA office and adoption kennel are located in Longwood, Florida. We are a 100% volunteer organization and we depend on donations to accomplish our wonderful mission; all funds go directly toward the care of the Greyhounds. Our goal is to find a home for every retired racing Greyhound that needs one, and we never turn away a Greyhound due to injury, illness, or old age.

AS WE MOVE FORWARD
Dear GPA/GO Adopters and Supporters,
After 25 years, GPA/GO will no longer be receiving retired racing Greyhounds from the local track. That track has closed, and there are no more available racers. By the end of the year, the few currently open tracks in Florida will also be closed.
Our new role in the Greyhound Community is to remain an active local resource for any Greyhound in an emergency or otherwise dangerous/compromised situation. This Greyhound may have a physical condition or injury requiring care, be in a shelter, be lost or found, or be without an adopter/owner/advocate. GPA/GO will work cooperatively with other reputable Greyhound organizations in the Central Florida area to provide a continuity of care for these endangered Greyhounds.
Lost or found Greyhounds should be reported immediately to our number, day or night.
We will also be looking for foster homes for these Greyhounds, if needed, so if you are interested, please send us an email.
We will vacate our current Adoption Kennel/Office operations at the end of August, 2020. We will not move to another location, but we intend to continue providing medications and follow-up lab tests to those adopters whose Greyhounds are actively being treated for hookworms. A new location for medication pick-up will be announced. We will continue providing this service until the end of this year, at the least.
Inquiries are still welcome and our email address (email@example.com) is unchanged. After August 28, 2020, if you need to contact GPA/GO, please use the following number: 321-303-9434.
Thank you for a grey-t 25 years and for your love of this gentle breed, which made all of this possible!
