GU will have a booth once again at NTIF. Volunteers staff the booth, and our personal hounds serve as "floor models", enabling festival-goers the chance to get “up close and personal” with a greyhound, sometimes for the first time. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Janis Brown, our Volunteer Coordinator, to get on the schedule to help out. She can be reached at

Help by becoming a foster home!

Toy Hoarding Greyhound
She is quite comfortable in her new foster home...
We also hear that she has a toy-hoarding problem...

We are still in dire need of foster homes for our incoming hounds. Foster homes are the bridge that leads to a forever home for our adoptable hounds, giving them a head start on getting accustomed to living in a home instead of a kennel, teaching them all the new and wonderful things they will encounter in a home that they may never have seen before.

If you are ready to give fostering a try, please send an email to One of our foster coordinators will contact you to talk about fostering and how you might be able to help, what your obstacles might be and how we might overcome them together. We all want this to be a successful experience for you and your new foster!


With the aid of the National Greyhound Association and the Texas Greyhound Association, four Texas greyhound adoption groups joined together to assist 111 of the greyhounds from the Cherokee blood bank - Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, Greyhounds Unlimited, GPA Houston and GPA Central Texas. Forty hounds went to adoption groups in western states. This accounts for all of the Cherokee greyhounds.

The adoption groups involved will process the greyhounds according to their standard intake protocol, including spays, neuters and dentals to ready the greyhounds for adoption. For all of the greyhound adoption groups involved, these numbers are significant. Even though the hounds appear to be in generally good health and condition, the groups will all need essential contributions to assist with the boarding and care of the Cherokee greys.
