Greyhound Adoptions of Florida has directly or indirectly enabled some 5,000 former racing greyhounds to find homes where they are cherished as family members, not money-making commodities. For well over two decades we were Florida's premier greyhound rehoming organization. We were not, are not, nor will we ever be affiliated with the greyhound racing industry.

Our goal now is to educate people on the importance of companion animals in our society and work to stop animal abuse and neglect. Most especially in these gentle, graceful, magnificent dogs we know so well and love.

Good-bye to Grey Haven is simply not the case. We may be saying good-bye to the beloved farm, but in fact, Grey Haven will live forever in the hearts and minds of everyone that has loved a dog that has passed through here. Grey Haven is a concept and a state of mind that has touched thousands of human and Greyhound hearts, and is a legacy that will endure.

Grey Haven will, as long as we live, continue to facilitate adoptions, remain a source of information and advice about Greyhounds, and will pour much more time and energy into Greyhound advocacy. We remain committed to helping end the scourge of dog racing.

Freedom's Garden will be relocated to a side of a sedate mountain in Murphy, NC. It will continue to be maintained and available even after the property is passed along. If you have any pavers, statues or paw prints that you would like to keep, just let us know and we will have them ready for you to take home.

Please join us for an open house at Grey Haven on Saturday April 21st at 11:30 AM. Your fur kids are welcome. Please bring your chairs and a blanket for the kids to lay on.If you have a muzzle, please bring it so the kids can run and play in the big field. If not, we have some extras for you to use. A food dish to share among our friends would be appreciated.

Please RSVP (Russ 352-205-6713 or Marilyn 352-812-0200). We will supply beverages (yes, beer, wine and some hard stuff also!) and will need a head count.

We will have our last chime ceremony and hope some of you will be willing to speak about your memories and possibly even add a tag to the chimes. The chimes and tags will all move to the mountain with us. You might want to consider bringing some Kleenex along for the tears.

This promises to be a very special and poignant event, so please join us. We look forward to seeing you.
