Welcome to "The Greyhound Inmate Experience"
Celebrating 8 years and graduating over 750 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!


Happy Thankgiving

It will be here soon now that the leaves have fallen and a first snow fall has happened.

Pumpkins at the Brewery

The Gem event  was a nice event as usual. We sold almost all the pumpkens as well as some art work. Thanks to all that made it happen and to all those wonderful people who support the event every year. Click here for a larger photo.
