The Racing Dog Retirement Project (RDRP) was an all-Volunteer 501(c) (3) organization dedicated to the protection, rehabilitation, and adoption of retired racing greyhounds. We are committed to the preservation, fair treatment and acceptance of retired racing greyhounds as a family pet.
RDRP was 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.
RDRP rescued all greyhounds regardless of age, condition or history. All greyhounds were welcomed, cared for and prepared for placement with our foster and permanent homes. We firmly believe retired racers make great pets and cherished family members. With over 1,000 greyhounds having been adopted into loving homes, RDRP looks to continue its missions of breed awareness, care and placement of retired racing dogs, as well as increase the project’s presence within the communities we serve.
