GST's Sun State Greyhound Adoption

Back to Top

GST's Sun State Greyhound Adoptions has been working with Suncoast Farms to help them move some pets from their kennel in Dover.  Cat testing, vetting, and fostering is a time-consuming effort, but so rewarding, when you see the hounds with their new families!  If you're interested in fostering, or know someone who is, please contact us; we're always looking for foster homes!  The more foster homes we have, the more hounds we can get adopted!!  See our "Foster Homes" page for more information. 

Recently, students at Tenoroc High School, in Lakeland, FL, had the opportunity to visit Derby Lane race track in St. Petersburg and two farms in Ocala to experience, first-hand, the lives of racing greyhounds.  They take you behind the scenes in their documentary.

Greyhounds: From Farm to Couch.

​Volunteers Cat-Test at Suncoast Farms

Despite a challenging summer, fraught with weather challenges, volunteers have been out supporting our foster program and showing off our lovable hounds!  This summer, Tampa volunteers participated in community markets throughout the Tampa Bay area, attended the Summer RV Show at the State Fairgrounds, the St. Pete Pride Festival, and Tampa's MetroCon at the Tampa Convention Center!  Volunteers in the Naples area were regulars at Rural King and Home Depot this summer.  Thank you to our wonderful community partners for these opportunities!


Our sisters at Greyhound Support Transport have had a busy summer too, coordinating multiple hauls from the Flagler/Miami area.  At the end of September, they have hauled a total of 83 dogs to adoption groups across the United States!!  WOW!  Way to go Crystal & Monica!


As the Flagler meet winds down, volunteers are getting ready for racing to return to the Naples-Ft. Myers Greyhound Track.  The first weekend in November will kick off the season and we will be ready.  Our adoption site in the grandstand has been updated by the Track and Mr. Juan Fra, giving us a larger area to present adoptable dogs to the public!!  Thank you to our home track for their continued support of our adoption program!


​We will be hosting our annual Volunteer Meeting Saturday, October 28, at the Naples Ft. Myers Track, from noon until 2 pm.  Lunch will be served while we discuss plans for the new season.  Please RSVP if you can attend: sunstategreyhounds@gmail.com.


As always, all events are posted on our calendar page.  We hope you can come out to see us at our events!
