Central Ohio Greyhound Rescue

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have currently put home visits and in-person adoptions on hold, indefinitely. We are very sorry to have to do this, but due to the virus spreading so rapidly, we have to limit personal contact to keep all our volunteers and foster parents safe. This also means we will not be taking any of the dogs from the Florida tracks that abruptly closed earlier this month.

We appreciate your understanding and support during this unprecedented time.


Welcome! Please come and see us at one of our Meet & Greet events.  Be sure to check out the Adoptables page to see what greyt dogs become available! Please check our Adoption Process page for details on the entire process of adopting.

If you’re not ready to adopt have you considered fostering? COGR is always in need of foster homes to help the hounds transition from track life to retirement. Nothing is more satisfying than helping a hound find a new life. If you’re interested in fostering send us an e-mail, Facebook message, submit an application, or give us a call at 614-239-0943.

Remember if you need to get a present for someone (or yourself, and support COGR) by shopping on Amazon Smile, or from one of our supporting Vendors.

COGR will only place greyhounds in the Central Ohio area. If you live outside Central Ohio and want to adopt a hound check out our list of Adoption Groups in other parts of the country.
