| Mission Statement:
As a non-profit Greyhound adoption organization, N.G.A.'s aim is to accommodate ex-racers, spay or neuter each individual, and integrate them into the surrounding communities. Each year, we strive to place 60 dogs. Dogs are welcomed into our kennel, and socialized with our volunteers and other Greyhounds as they relax and adjust into their retirement years. Pursuant to our mission, we work to educate the public and increase awareness of Greyhounds.
Northern Greyhound Adoptions is a 501(c) non-profit charitable organization (DLN # 17053251706011, & EIN # 03-0367257) dedicated to taking care of retired racing Greyhound and finding them permanent, loving & responsible homes. N.G.A. is operated by unpaid volunteers and supported solely by donations.
N.G.A. was founded in October 2001 and places 50 to 60 retired Greyhound into homes each year. Donald & Dorothy Westover who head up N.G.A. have been dedicated to Greyhound rescue for over 15 years.
N.G.A. places dogs throughout Vermont and Northern New York, as well as in Canada in the Montreal area.
This is the only retired racing Greyhound adoption kennel in Vermont - and at any given time we have between 30 and 50 Greyhounds looking for their forever families!
In 2010 we placed over 120 dogs into their forever homes!!!
