Star City Greyhound is dedicated to finding loving homes for retired racing greyhounds. For the last 13 years we have placed over 1000 of these amazing dogs into their forever homes. We operate entirely on donations from the public and small fundraisers. Our kennel in Roanoke, VA houses close to 50 greyhounds at any one time. All of our dogs are well taken care of, receive proper nutrition, vet care, and vaccines. We also get all of our dogs spayed or neutered. Helping these dogs is our life and we wouldn't have it any other way.
