Rescue Spotlight: Pups Without Partners

Pups Without Partners (PWP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping greyhounds in the racing industry by finding homes for these dogs after their racing career is over. Since their inception in 1995, this group has placed over 6,000 greyhounds into loving permanent homes. PWP notes that greyhounds are affectionate and friendly dogs that make excellent pets after they retire from racing at about 2 to 5 years of age.

If you’re located in the New Haven/Northern Fairfield County area in CT and are interested in adopting a retired greyhound, you can view greyhounds available for adoption on their website.  Your next step will be to complete the PWP adoption application, after which you will be contacted to schedule a home visit. Love greyhounds but you’re not able to adopt right now? You can volunteer to provide a foster home for a greyhound in need, or to help with fundraising or at their regular “Meet and Greet” greyhound events. Pups Without Partners also gratefully accepts monetary donations which are tax-deductible.

PetMeds was proud to support Pups Without Partners with a donation of pet supplies.
