NOTICE: Changes due to Coronavirus outbreak in our area
UPDATE 5/28/21: Our area's COVID-19 threat level has been downgraded to Yellow (Stay Vigilant unless Fully Vaccinated) which is good news regarding the pandemic. However, because there is still a large number of unvaccinated or partially vaccinated people in the area, The Noble Center remains closed to the general public. We will continue applicant/adopter appointments outside; kennel volunteering remains cancelled at this time. In case of inclement weather, appointments may be held inside the adoption room at The Noble Center for groups of four or less. For everyone's protection, we will continue to require masks and social distancing. There are no restrictions on home visits, which can be done either in-person or virtually depending on the applicant's home location. Continuing our mission has been challenging, but we strive to do our best each day for the benefit of the hounds in our program.
If you have any questions, please call the kennel office at 832-813-8419 or email us. Thank you again for your understanding, and please stay safe.
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.

2020 Angel List and Memory Book
GPAH sends its condolences to all families who lost a hound in 2020. At the end of the year, we publish the angel list from that 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 2020 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.
