I got my first greyhound from APFUG in New Mexico. I was so impressed by the commitment of the volunteers, and the concern for the well being of the dogs above all else, I began to volunteer. All three of my greyhounds have been APFUG hounds.

A Place for Us Greyhounds (APFUG) was founded in 1996 in New Mexico and it is a 501 (c) 3, tax exempt charity. APFUG was founded with the goal of placing greyhounds from all walks of life into appropriate pet homes. The organization is neutral on the subject of greyhound racing. APFUG has placed retired racing greyhounds, cold blood (coyote hunter) greyhounds, greyhound mixes, and also the occasional AKC greyhounds that have found themselves in trouble and without a place to go. APFUG exists totally on tax deductible donations from the public, as well as from the occasional yard sales & auctions that are held. IT IS RUN ENTIRELY BY VOLUNTEERS. Not a single worker or director accepts any kind of salary or gift in kind. ALL MONIES go to providing DIRECT SERVICES TO THE DOGS! Linda Dunn, President, was the first person to establish a relationship with the isolated greyhound breeders in the TX panhandle. The group is now based in Lubbock, TX, which is where it relocated after the original NM branch shut down. For a very small group, APFUG does outstanding work!
