Greyhound Facts

Age- greyhounds placed through the GPA program are usually between 2 years and five years old.

Exercise/Space – Although greyhounds enjoy a good walk or an occasional area to run, they do not require a lot of space. Inside the house they enjoy curling up in a corner.

Life Expectancy - These pure bred athletes enjoy many years of good health. With proper care, they have a life expectancy of twelve or more years.

Feeding/Cost – Greyhounds require a good quality high protein food. The primary ingredient must be a protein (beef, chicken, turkey, lamb). The dry food must be moistened with water at feeding time. The cost for feeding is approx. $1.00 a day
