About GPAMO:

“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 in not only doing the best we can adopting Greyhounds in the Ozarks, but also in assisting other adoption programs throughout the US,” said Alane Shultz, founder of GPAMO. She has had retired racing Greyhounds as pets since 1983 and 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!” 

GPAMO has adopted out over 1,400 Greyhounds since 1992 and has helped hundreds of others get involved with other Greyhound adoption programs. In September 2016 GPAMO received its own 501(c)3 tax exempt organization status.
