Greyhound Pets of America – Houston (GPA-Houston) is the Houston chapter of Greyhound Pets of America (GPA), a national non-profit organization. GPA was founded in 1987 and, together with its nearly 40 nationwide chapters, has adopted over 100,000 greyhounds to homes throughout the country. GPA-Houston is dedicated to finding responsible and loving homes for retired racing greyhounds, to educating the public on the suitability and availability of greyhounds as pets, and to acquainting them on how this beautiful and noble breed makes an excellent and loving pet. GPA-Houston operates out of The Noble Center in the Spring/Woodlands area.
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 three kennel employees, we are an all-volunteer organization with over 500 members in the Houston metropolitan area. GPA-Houston is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) public charity, and our Federal Tax Identification Number is 76-0210038.

ANGEL MEMORY BOOK
GPAH has created a memory album for all greyhound angels. The original Memory Book can be viewed at the kennel office, but an online version can be found here.
If you have an angel for whom you would like a special memorial page created, please contact us for details on what is needed.
Greyhounds have a huge impact in their adopters' lives, and it shows in these lovely memorials.
Every January, we post an angel list from the past year. This posting sometimes reminds us that a page in the Memory Book would be the perfect way to honor the memory of a greyhound angel.
IMPORTANT CHANGES ABOUT WHERE TO FIND THE DISCUSSION BOARD AND GIFT SHOP
The old Discussion Board has been inactivated. Fear not, you can still engage in discussions of all things greyhound by visiting the discussion forum on Facebook.
The online Gift Shop is now up and running!! Please check it out - here's the link! https://www.gpahouston.org/shop. We hope to add more items in the gift shop as time goes on.
