We are an all-volunteer, not for profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and finding adoptive homes for retired racing Greyhounds.
Founded in the early 1990′s as a branch of the Pennsylvania-based Greyhound rescue group, Make Peace with Animals. RDRP was reorganized in 1997 as a Florida nonprofit corporation based in Sarasota, Florida.
To date, more than 1,000 retired racing Greyhounds have found their forever homes through the dedicated work of hundreds of RDRP volunteers.
ALL ARE WELCOMED AND CARED FOR… The vast majority of Greyhounds rescued by RDRP come directly from the track. Many are retired after suffering racing-related injuries such as broken legs and hocks and others are retired because they simply were not fast enough to earn their keep as racers. Still others are at mandatory retirement age or have fulfilled their usefulness as brood bitches or studs. RDRP takes in all Greyhounds regardless of age, ondition ro history. All are welcomed, cared for and readied whenever possible for placement in loving permanent homes.
