About Us

Needle-Nose Greyhound Adoption is a not-for-profit, all-volunteer adoption and support group for retired racing greyhounds. We are based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and are happy to place dogs throughout Southern Ontario.

The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.
~ Samuel Butler, Notebooks, 1912

Scratch a dog and you’ll find a permanent job. 
~ Franklin P. Jones

Dogs laugh, but they laugh with their tails.
~ Max Eastman, Enjoyment of Laughter

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
