NOTICE: Changes due to Coronavirus outbreak in our area
UPDATE 6/28/2020: With the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in the Houston area, The Noble Center will remain closed to the general public through July 31, 2020. At that time, we will re-evaluate based on information then available. We will continue to conduct adoption appointments outside for those applicants who have completed the application process. First office visits and home visits to apartment complexes, however, will be on hold at least until the end of July. We appreciate our essential volunteers for all they've done during the pandemic; the hounds are doing well, and we have had several new adoptions recently. Continuing our mission during this time has been a challenge, but we continue to work day by day for the benefit of the hounds in our program. If you have any questions regarding our policies during the pandemic, please call our office at 832-813-8419 or email us. Thank you again for your understanding, and please stay safe.
UPDATE 6/11/2020: Keeping our members safe remains a top priority. To do so, the Board of Directors has decided to conduct its monthly membership meetings via Zoom. The meetings will still be held on the 4th Sunday of each month, starting at 1 pm CDT. To request to join a meeting, please email us; we will send you an invitation. Thank you for understanding as we navigate during the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
2019 Angel List and Memory Book
GPAH sends its condolences to all familes who lost a hound in 2019. 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. To see the 2019 Angel List, please click here.
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.
