John a. Hern Jr. founded Greyhound Pets, Inc. in 1985. Since that time, GPI has taken in over 6,000 retired racing greyhounds and greyhound mixes.
John was a Coeur D'Alene, Idaho businessman who built a foundry business and owned Industrial Park real estate. Among John's many and varied interested, he held great admiration for ex-racing greyhounds, was committed to their care, and was a pioneer in re-homing the ex-racers. John was instrumental in building a track-sponsored Greyhound Welfare Committee that reviewed track and kennel policies.
John adopted several greyhounds of his own. ACE was one of his favorites and was the subject of many of John's stories.
