MotorCity Greyhound Rescue (MCGR) was conceived by a group of individuals connected by a deep love of the racing greyhound. MCGR is comprised of many dedicated volunteers and supporters who share our passion and for whom we are so grateful.

Our mission is to rehome greyhounds which are no longer able to race and place them into permanent loving homes. Additionally we will educate the public as to the suitability of the racing greyhound as a pet. We are based in the Detroit area and primarily serve the southeastern Michigan, southwestern Ontario and Toledo, Ohio areas.

In addition to always providing an avenue to adoption for US greyhounds, we are partnered with Candy Cane Rescue which saves greyhounds that have been sent to China and have entered the meat trade.  Also, we are partnered with Galgos Del Sol which saves Spanish galgos who are injured and discarded. We will have these all of these dogs available for adoption.

MotorCity Greyhound Rescue is a volunteer-driven 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  We strive to raise funds which will provide for the necessary vetting for the greyhounds that we receive.  We must count on the generosity of individuals and community organizations who realize how precious these lives are and will help us in our mission. Donations are tax deductible.
