Northern Lights Greyhound Adoption (NLGA) is a nonprofit group of volunteers dedicated to finding responsible homes for retired racing greyhounds and educating the public about greyhounds as pets. NLGA has been placing these faithful, loving and wonderful companions 21+ years. In that time we have found homes for over 1,600 dogs. Our adoption coordinators will work closely with you to find out if a greyhound is the right breed for you, your family and your lifestyle.
COVID-19 Updates from NLGA: We are happy to announce that NLGA has reopened their greyhound adoption services! While we are able to place greyhounds into their new homes, we are doing so with social distancing and precautions in place to ensure the safety of our volunteers and potential adopters. Please contact us if you have questions or are interested in adopting a greyhound. We are also VERY excited to announce that we have resumed some of our activities and meet and greet events. Please continue to check our Events Page for the most current information! Thank you for your continued support! If you are interested in donating to NLGA please click here. Every contribution is very much appreciated.
JOIN US AT THE "GREYT" MINNESOTA GET TOGETHER
The Minnesota State Fair draws 1.9 million guests each year. This a great opportunity to spread that greyhound love to whole lot of people. We need you and your hounds to help us spread that greyhound love! This is a long day and we will need coverage throughout the 12-hour day (Labor Day, September 6, 2021). NLGA will have a booth in the Pet Center and a shaded, tented area outside the Pet Center. This is a fun event you won't want to miss!
NLGA will have a very limited number of car passes, so carpooling is strongly recommended. We will also provide admission tickets. Please bring a chair for yourself and a bed for your hound. THE PET CENTER IS LOCATED ON THE NORTH END OF THE FAIRGROUNDS.
