Rain - new pics - 1 - faceIf you come across a lurcher in need of help, please contact us either by phone or email. Our contact information is listed on this website. A link to the dog and/or picture would be helpful. In order to make matters less complicated for everyone – and so that the shelter doesn’t get swamped with calls – please do not call the shelter yourself. Too many calls are confusing and overburden the shelter staff.

If you know of a group who may be able to take a lurcher or two, please contact us. The American Lurcher Project can assist with transport and basic medical (e.g, vaccinations, Capstar treatment, Frontline, Heartworm test). We are eager to talk to groups – either greyhound adoption or all breed rescues — who would love to help with taking one of these special dogs. Without adoption/rescue groups, the lurchers will not get their second chance.

Your Donation Saves Lives!

Thanks to donors like you, the American Greyhound Lurchers and Greyhound Mixes will have a second chance at finding a loving home. Your gift helps the American Lurcher Rescue Project rescue find life-long loving homes for many Greyhound mixes each year. Your support provides the resources we need to rescue over 100 dogs each year. We are an all volunteer organization and 100% goes directly to helping the hounds. This means that your gift is used efficiently.

On behalf of the hounds, thank you!

The American Lurcher Rescue Project is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible.

Walk for a Dog

Walk for a Dog is a simple, year-round fundraising app! It promotes healthy interaction between dogs and their owners, and raises money every day to support the mission of your animal shelter or rescue. It also gives people a reason to think about their local animal organization every time they take their dogs for a walk.

Please go to and download the app. Go to Alabama and select The American Lurcher Rescue Project. You can live in any state to designate our group.

Transport Help Needed

Drivers Needed! We are in need of volunteers to help transport. Most of the lurchers go to groups many many miles away. Transport is extremely important in helping the lurchers find their forever homes. If you can assist with transport, we would love to speak with you!

Volunteer with Us

We are always looking to add new volunteers to our organization.
