Welcome to "The "Greyhound Inmate Experience."

We invite you to spend a few minutes exploring our site to get better acquainted and learn more about this all inspiring program that touches the lives of so many people.

The Greyhound Inmate Experience is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) Michigan organization. Our purpose is to socialize, train, and care for retired greyhounds in a prison environment and to educate the public of the redemptive qualities and rehabilitative benefits of the program.

Every ten weeks twenty greyhounds are put into the care and supervision of forty specially selected and trained incarcerated dog handlers. As the greyhounds transition from racer to pet, people's lives are also transformed. This program touches the soul of everyone connected to it. Learn more about our inspiration,  our adoption partners who find forever homes for our graduates and our Supportive Friends who contribute on an on-going basis...we could not do this without them!
