About our Logo
Our double flowing greyhound logo was designed by commission by artist Jesse E. Christensen of Maple Valley, Washington. We wanted our logo to show not only the strength and speed of a greyhound but also their graceful spirit. We feel that he captured the heart of a retired racer in the logo design. Mr. Christensen designed our logo free of charge, donating both his time and talent to GPALV

  • Our group is operated by volunteers and is funded solely by donations. We need your help to continue the work we are doing to place these retired racing Greyhounds into loving homes. Some of the expenses we need help with are general veterinary care and injury repairs, food, medications, transportation & grooming supplies.


  • GPALV is growing and working on continuing to raise awareness about ex-racing greyhounds as pets. We are expanding our Meet and Greets to include PETCO!  We are still introducing retired greyhounds at our PetsMart meet and greets but we are now conducting meet and greets at PETCO.  Please see our EVENTS page for info on our Henderson PETCO meet and greets. We would love to have you drop in with your greyhounds.

  • Your Summer 2014 GPALV Newsletter is here. Inside you will find information about upcoming events including our Mob Museum Scavenger Hunt and the 20th Annual Greyhound Picnic in the Park. Chock full of greyt information with articles like 'A Day in the Life of A Racing Greyhound', 'Doctor, What is That Smell?' and more!

  • As many of you know, GPALV requested and was granted a cutaway diesel bus from Regional Transportation Commission for our hauls of newly retired greyhounds. Although any reference to RTC was removed from the bus it is still white with the RTC "racing stripes" down the sides. We are hoping to dress it up to make it unrecognizable as anything other than a retired greyhound transport bus.

    We want to see this GPALV bus go from d.r.a.b. to FABULOUSLY GREYT with your help!

    We are offering a chance for you to see your beautiful greyhounds featured on the windows of our transport bus

    GPALV is working with Paul’s Photography to photograph our greyhounds, transfer to film and cover the windows on the ‘new’ transport bus with photos of our retired greyhounds. Sponsorships are for a period of ~2 years.

    Total price including the photography sitting for one window panel: $175

    There are a total of 19 window panels available. Rear window panel of the bus is reserved for GPALV's logo and web site info.

    Your business web site and logo on the body of the bus: $350 for an ad up to 18" high by 24" wide for ~2 years. Sponsors desiring business logo and web address must supply an appropriate format of the artwork to our film printer.

    If you would like to sponsor a window panel with your greyhound on the bus or add your logo to the side of the bus please email greyhounds@cox.net. We will move forward from there with photography sitting appointments.
