We're Greyhound Rescue of Tennessee, and we want to thank you for taking a minute to visit us. We are an all-volunteer greyhound rescue and adoption group. It is our belief that racing greyhounds should not be overlooked, but rather placed into loving, responsible homes at the end of their careers. Our mission is to inform the public about the retired racers, show them to be the beautiful, gentle animals that they are, and make a difference in the lives of as many retired racers as possible. We believe that racing greyhounds deserve every chance to become a treasured family member at the end of their careers, and we will strive to provide the best possible homes for them.


If you're interested in adopting or would like to donate your time, talent, or supplies please contact us HERE.


We appreciate your interest in GRFT, and hope you stop by again soon.

In Memory of those we have Known, Loved and Lost










Keri as she is being called in her foster home has been a racer and retired to head back to the farm to be a mommy.  She was 9 years old in June.


Once she was through having puppies she found  herself retired from her second career as a mommy and was moved into foster care with GRFT to find her own special family


Keri is a beautiful young lady that is being fostered with small dogs and additional Greyhounds.   She was cat tested in a private home and did very well. 


Keri has settled into foster care  with no problems.  She is getting lots of practice learning to walk on a leash.


Keri will make most any households a beautiful companion.


Do you have the love Keri is looking for and can you play with her, take her on walks and let her be a treasured member of your family for the next several years?


Fostered by   Sherri and Randy in Knoxville
