An exciting movement is underway to save the American Lurchers. The American Lurcher Rescue Project is a team of dedicated volunteers concerned about the plight of the American Lurcher – the underdogs of underground racing. Our love for the retired racing Greyhounds has drawn us together to help the thousands of lurchers who have often been forgotten. We hope to make a difference by helping them find loving forever homes through transport of these wonderful dogs to responsible adoption groups throughout the United States and Canada. We are a young group, but have accomplished much since we started transporting needy lurchers to groups in September of 2013. We hope to make a difference by raising awareness of the need for finding homes and adoption groups for the racing lurchers once their career has ended, through social media, networking, and the general support of a caring community.

We believe these wonderful dogs deserve a second chance to live a life in a real home. Please pass the word or consider adopting one of these sweet and loving dogs. We can put you in touch with groups that have them. We rescue and transport the dogs to groups throughout the United States and Canada.

If you are an adoption or rescue group and can take a dog or two, please contact us.
