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.





You, our dear, good friends have supported Greyhound Adoptions of Florida for more than two decades.  Support for us meant support for what we’ve always stood for:  a good, decent life for every greyhound.  You can still help GAF fulfill this mission, by contributing here, to Kathy Pelton’s Adoption and Education Fund.  Kathy was a friend to every greyhound and a good friend of GAF.  While she left us too soon, her work goes on…with your support and with ours.   Thank you, friends.

With love,

Kathy Pelton Greyhound Adoption and Education Fund

In honor of longtime greyhound advocate Kathy Pelton, Grey2K USA Education Fund has created a special fund to promote greyhound adoption and humane education. Kathy gave presentations in schools, hosted outreach tables, volunteered at greyhound adoption centers, marched in parades, wrote letters to the editor, and rescued five greyhounds, including Jack and Jill pictured above.

One of the most important friendships that Kathy had in her fight for the greyhounds, and in her personal battle against breast cancer, was with Marilyn Varnberg, the leader of Greyhound Adoptions of Florida. They were united in their knowledge of the cruelty of dog racing and their determination to stop it.

Kathy also served as the Florida Director for GREY2K USA Worldwide and helped to pass injury reporting statewide and the Greyhound Protection Act of Seminole County. Her legacy lives on as the work to end dog racing continues in her state and across the globe.

All contributions to the Kathy Pelton Greyhound Adoption and Education Fund are tax-deductible and will be donated at the end of each year to one of the groups on our referral list.
