|WELCOME TO GREYHOUND PET ADOPTION SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI!|
Greyhound Pet Adoption Springfield MO is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides information, education, promotion of adoption and adoption of retired racing Greyhounds. We also promote cooperation with other adoption programs nationwide to further the placement of Greyhounds as pets into responsible loving homes. We believe not only doing the best we can adopting Greyhounds in the Ozarks but also assisting groups in areas that are so overwhelmed with huge numbers of Greyhounds to help that they must be transported to other adoption programs throughout the US.
Alane Shultz is the founder of GPAMO and has had retired racing greyhounds as pets for 34 years. She has facilitated greyhound adoptions since 1992.
Greyhounds are clean, quiet and have no hereditary health problems. Their exercise requirements are surprisingly low - they prefer to curl up and have you pet them! Loving and loyal, your greyhound is your fast friend for life!
SPRINGFIELD SHOW & TELL MOVES TO NEW PETCO
Starting Sunday March 4 our Springfield Show & Tell meet and greets will be at the NEW Petco on S. Glenstone next to Lucky's Market (3333 S. Glenstone) and Corwin Ford dealership. This is also a schedule change for Springfield: we'll meet on the first Sunday of each month from 1-3 p.m. Also, March 4 will be the Grand Opening Weekend for the New Petco!
Thanks to all our volunteers who helped at the HBA Home Show. We had lots of traffic! Our booth cost was $250 and we collected $426 in donations.
Congratulations to Mike, who won the $75 Petco Gift Card, and to Brenda and Betty, who won oil changes at Rick's Automotive!
It costs us $100 per Greyhound to ship them from Alabama or Florida to Springfield, Missouri.

Corey a very handsome boy. He is 4 years old and raced in West Memphis. Corey's happy and friendly, but he's not good with cats or small dogs. He gets along well with other Greyhounds.

Dog Knose Art, by Nicole Peters,
Showcase the artwork of your sweet family dog, cat or any animal you share your loving home with. Before you clean the nose-smudged, tongue-licked strokes from your glass, have them turned into a unique, abstract piece of art to display in your home. Dog Knose Art will create your preferred color scheme and size to fit into your current decor. The result will be a memorable keepsake that involves your pet in a beautiful and sentimental way.
