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.




Please take note that the Kennel Office will be closed between June 29 and July 9th. We will be checking emails and voicemails intermittently. Thank you and have a safe and greyt Holiday.
