Greyhound Pets of America Inc. (GPA) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to finding responsible loving homes for Greyhounds, to acquaint the public with the desirability of Greyhounds as pets, and to inform them of the availability of Greyhounds for adoption.

GPA-Houston, Inc. is the proud Houston chapter of GPA and we operate out of the Best Friends Pet Care in the Galleria area.  GPA-Houston is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) public charity and our Federal Tax Identification Number is 76-0210038.

Since there is never a lack of dogs waiting for adoption, potential adopters have the opportunity to meet and get to know several dogs. Through our extensive adoption process, it is our goal to find the perfect match for both pet and owner. Except for two part-time kennel employees, we are an all volunteer organization with over 500 members in the Houston metropolitan area.



Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday foster period, the kennel will be closed between November 22 and December 5. We will be monitoring email and voicemail intermittently. Have a safe holiday.



Have your holiday photo taken with your pet and family. This event will be hosted by our Greyt Kids youth volunteers, so come support them and the hounds at the same time. Saturday, December 6, 2014, 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. For more info, click here.



Come. Sit. Stay. And see some greyhounds. The 7th annual Barkfest is just around the corner! Join us on November 22, 2014 from 10AM-4PM at Kingwood's Town Center Park. The event is free and open to the public. Click here for more info or email Kathy.
