The Adoption Process
Thank you for your interest in adopting a retired racing Greyhound. Greyhounds make wonderful companion pets and will give you many years of love and devotion. The adoption application has been designed to evaluate potential adopters to ensure that each person who adopts a Greyhound is not only aware of that responsibility, but also to address the compatibility of the home in which each Greyhound is placed.

We have worked in Greyhound adoption for many years and have seen many happy endings, and unfortunately we have also seen a few sad ones. We have only the best interest of the Greyhound in mind. Please remember that Greyhounds can live 10 to 14 years, making this a serious, long-term commitment.

It is very traumatic for a dog to be returned by its family once it has settled into its new home, and pets should NEVER be considered dispensable. Furthermore, note that the Greyhound is not for everyone. These dogs rely on us to place them into appropriate, loving, responsible homes. All adults in your household must agree to this adoption and sign the application.
 
Can I Meet some Greyhounds First?
Absolutely! You really should take the time to meet some greyhounds. That's why we hold several Meet & Greets every month. Check out our event calendar. Not convenient for you? We might be able to arrange for you to meet some greyhounds nearby - just give us a call.
