Walking - We take the greys for at least 2 walks per day and with 50 greyhounds to walk, we can use all the help we can get. 

Socializing - If you can't walk or prefer not to be out in the elements, you can spend some time with some of our more timid greys.  This will help them get used to people they don't know as well as the staff and in turn they will be more outgoing when potential adopters come to visit.

Meet and Greets - On the weekends, we visit local businesses with the greys to educate the public on what we do here at Fast Friends and to answer greyhound racing, breed and adoption questions. We also introduce people to greyhounds that may have never met one before to show them what a wonderful and gentle breed they are.

Chores - We also have lots of daily chores like washing dishes, sweeping, laundry and general cleaning that we can always use help with.

Gardening/Landscaping - Spring will be here soon and there will be many opportunities to help with planting flowers, seeding, grounds maintenance and other outdoor activities. So if you have a green thumb, we could really use your help.

Nursing Home Visits - There are several nursing homes in the area that love for us to bring the greyhounds over to visit with their residents. It's very rewarding to see how spending time with one of our greyhounds can put a smile on just about anyone’s face.

As you can see, there are many different ways for you and your family to help out Fast Friends and the community.

We hold Volunteer Orientations once a month. You can find the date and time posted on our calendar of events. Once you have attended an orientation, you can come any day from 11am - 3pm to help the greyhounds.

*Note that all volunteers must attend an orientation to work with the Greyhounds.

Without the dedication and commitment of our volunteers we would not be able to care for the 50 plus retired racing greyhounds that reside here at Fast Friends while they wait for their new forever homes.

If you have questions or would like more information about our volunteer program, you can send us an email at or call us at (603) 355-1556.
