Hounds of the Heartland is a non-profit humane organization that finds loving, responsible homes for retired racing greyhounds and for young greyhounds not placed on the racetrack.
Our organization is run completely by volunteers who transport dogs from kennels, greyhound farms, and animal shelters; foster them in the Oklahoma City area; and do adoption outreach at petstores and events to increase the public’s awareness of what excellent, loving pets these noble dogs make.
Greyhounds are generally sweet, even-tempered dogs that love their humans and aim to please. They rarely bark, don’t shed a lot, and are notorious couch potatoes. Their laid-back demeanor means they are great family pets, apartment dogs, companions for the eldery, or mellow friends for working adults.
We’ll be selling raffle tickets for great prizes near the front entrace at Deluxe. The money raised at Deluxe all goes to support our foster greyhounds in the form of veterinary costs, food, medicine, and supplies. We usually have between 6-10 greyhounds available for adoption at any given time. There are always more greyhounds waiting for our foster spots, so if you are interested in adding a greyhound to your family we encourage you to read more about the breed and fill out an application. We hope you make time to stop by at Deluxe and meet your new best friend!
