Ryan Reed was born in Kennewick, Washington in 1968. Ryan adopted his first retired racer from Greyhound Pets of America's Idaho Chapter (now Greyhound Pets, Incorporated). A few scant months later, he began working as an adoption volunteer for the organization. His current Greyhounds, Dino and Bailey, were adopted through GPI as well. Ryan is a contributor to The Greyhound Review -- the official publication of the National Greyhound Association -- and was a contributor to the short-lived publication, The Racing Greyhound Insider. Ryan continues to be an advocate for the sport of greyhound racing and adoption.
