Welcome to "The Greyhound Inmate Experience"
Celebrating 9 years and graduating over 900 greyhounds!

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 volunteer 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!

 Lakeland Update

The prison has reported several new cases but is still has a no visitors allowed policy. We have not been inside Lakeland since February of this year. It will probably stay this way for the balance of the year. We maintain close contact with the handlers and staff to keep up with the program and it's daily activities.

News Flash!!!

Well Gaye Ann and I finally decided we needed a greyhound at home again since we aren't traveling as much since the covid crisis. So we adopted Lynn from the last session and couldn't be happier.
