A 501(c)3 not for profit charitable organization that finds forever, loving homes for retired Greyhound racing dogs in the Kansas City area.

Events

Originally founded in 1990, Kansas City Retired Greyhounds as Pets (KCREGAP) is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year! In honor of this milestone, we’re setting our sights high so that we can find homes for more of our beloved greys this year than ever before….We’ve recently been challenged with retirees with major health problems, Chief & Dexter with broken legs with one more broken leg baby joining us soon, as well as Dasher with multiple maladies. To our organization, they all have names and personalities and are worth our best effort to rehabilitate and find them their forever homes!
This July, in an effort to celebrate our anniversary, raise additional funds for health expenses, and broaden our main fundraising event to all our supporters, we’re announcing the Inaugural Bow-wow-a-thon.

It is KCREGAP’s mission to fund veterinarian and placement services for retired racing greyhounds in the Kansas City community, and we have successfully placed thousands of animals over the years. In the last few years, we’ve introduced several new and exciting events, such as Greyheart, Paws & Pancakes, and now the Bow-wow-a-thon to the list. We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the many exciting events that we are offering this year and experience firsthand the pride and effort we expend to support the pups.
