Who We AreContact Us
MCGR Home
MotorCity Greyhound Rescue (MCGR) was conceived by a group of individuals connected by a deep love of the greyhound and an opposition to greyhound racing.  Our interest and experience in greyhound rescue and adoption inspired and drove us to launch this endeavor.  MCGR is comprised of many dedicated volunteers and supporters who share our passion and for whom we are so grateful.
 

MCGR is opposed to the greyhound racing industry on the basis that it perpetrates thousands of needless canine deaths each year in addition to ongoing abuse, neglect and general inhumane treatment of thousands of greyhounds within the racing circuit. Our mission is to rescue greyhounds from abusive, dangerous and/or neglectful situations and place those dogs into permanent loving homes. Additionally we will educate the public as to the racing industry's inhumane practices and as to the suitability of the racing greyhound as a pet. We are based in the Detroit area and primarily serve the southeastern Michigan and Windsor, Ontario regions.

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 rescue.  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.
