Welcome to Greyhound Adoption Service

Dear friends,

Due to health issues, Marilyn has retired.  The GAS kennel is now permanently closed. Many thanks from Marilyn to everyone for your kind thoughts and wishes.  Special appreciation goes to our volunteers who worked so hard to maintain the kennel and help care for the dogs.  Thank you to all of our adopters and friends for your support.

Sincerely,  Marilyn and the volunteers at G.A.S.


"G.A.S. friends. We wanted to let you know that The Haunted Hound 5K will be happening again this year at Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm in Newbury on Sunday, October 28th.  Last year the funds raised went to G.A.S. This year the funds raised will go to Greyhound Pets of America, Massachusetts.  We would love to keep the G.A.S. community involved and connected, so please join us if you can, and share the event with your friends!  You can register and get more info at: and like our facebook page .  We hope to see you there!"

Greyhound Adoption Service (GAS) is a non-profit humane organization dedicated to finding loving, responsible  homes for  retired racing greyhounds.  Our mission is to raise awareness about what gentle, affectionate companions these noble dogs  are.  Greyhound Adoption Service is operated totally by volunteers and depends on fund-raising and donations for its operating expenses.  GAS was founded by Marilyn Wolkovits and in 28 years of service, our stalwart band of volunteers has placed over 2000 greyhounds into their forever homes. 


Before placement, our greyhounds receive a veterinary exam, heartworm test, complete dental, rabies and distemper/parvo innoculations, routine de-worming and spay or neuter.  All dogs have a health certificate, GAS ID tag, and a new martingale collar and leash.  The adoption fee is a non-refundable $350.  GAS makes a special effort to match the right dog with the right family or person. Pre- and post-adoption help and information are provided.  Call for an appointment.
