Greyhound Pets of America Minnesota

GPA Spring Fundraiser - Race to Raise

Race to Raise: A night to support retired racing greyhound adoption

Please join us for Greyhound Pets of America - Minnesota's largest annual fundraising event of the year! Let's come together for a fun evening as we Race to Raise funds, giving these fast friends a running start to their loving new families! 

GPA-MN is a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit organization whose mission is to find responsible loving homes for retired racing greyhounds in Minnesota. We are an all-volunteer-run greyhound adoption group, which means every cent raised goes directly to supporting the greyhounds in our care, including ever-increasing veterinary expenses, transport from out of state (and out of country!), and day to day fostering needs until their adoption. Since our inception in 1987, we have placed nearly 2000 greyhounds into loving homes in Minnesota and surrounding areas. With your help, we will keep on running!
