Foster Care*
Foster homes for greyhounds are always critically needed. By being a foster home, you provide a temporary home for one of the greyhounds that has been brought into GG's adoption program. You acquaint them with "life inside a home" versus life at the kennel or track. It can be one of the most rewarding, and sometimes challenging, experiences.
 
The most common comment about fostering a greyhound, is "I'm afraid I will get too attached". Well, that is very true for each of us, but remember, "if you adopt you can save one, if you foster you can save many."

As a foster, you sacrifice a bit of your heart and your home to the greyhounds. The dogs bond quickly. You may be the first person who has been kind to them. It is hard to give them up when they are adopted. But remember, "The gift is in the goodbye." Fostering is a lesson in unselfish love.

If you are interested in becoming a foster home, please contact Lisa Sallie at 516-735-5070.

*Important Note: GG only allows families who already own greyhounds to foster greyhounds.
