Greyhound Adoption of Ohio is the largest (based on number of dogs placed) and oldest (based on incorporation date) greyhound adoption organization in the state of Ohio. At the time of our inception, in 1993, greyhounds were rarely seen in Ohio. Today, you'll see greyhounds nearly everywhere you go! The word is out! Greyhounds make WONDERFUL pets! GAO receives dogs from numerous tracks around the country, but primarily from Florida , Wisconsin and Kansas . We generally have 25-30 dogs awaiting placement at any given time. Upon arrival at GAO, each dog is neutered, vaccinated, checked for parasites, heartworm tested, microchipped and has a complete dental cleaning. Anything else the future pet may need is done prior to placement. Occasionally, GAO will receive a dog with a fractured leg, an injury that is quite common in the world of greyhound racing. These dogs receive excellent care through Ohio State University 's orthopedic surgery center. Our goal, at GAO, is to place our greyhounds with loving, committed families where they will live safe and secure for the rest of their lives. To that end, GAO offers support to help your dog transition into his or her new life and throughout the life of your pet. We welcome you to the wonderful world of retired racing greyhounds! May it be as rewarding for you as it is for us!'s Sponsor's Sponsor
