See what some of our family is saying.

“We wouldn’t have met the two most amazing Greyhounds in the world, Flynn & Maggie, without Heartland Greyhound Adoption. They are a wonderful organization that puts the best interest of the dogs ahead of anything else. We are grateful for all their hard work and dedication to the breed.”

Sarah Ryan

“There are many wonderful greyhound adoption groups, but for me, Heartland stands just a little bit taller mainly because of all the good foster work they do to make sure that whenever a hound is placed permanently with a family, that dog will likely have found their “forever” home. Kudos!”

Barb Biffle Bennett

“HGA genuinely cares about every dog that comes to them. Since we’ve adopted our greyhound, HGA has been a second family to us.”

Liz Cleaveland


Whether you’re new to greyhounds or have been around them all your life, we are here to help.


Heartland Greyhound Adoption is a volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, formed and operating in central Iowa to promote the adoption of retired racing greyhounds.
