Our local Representative will contact your veterinarian (if you have a pet) to verify that your pet is up-to-date on vaccinations and heartworm prevention. Personal references will also be contacted.
After the Application is approved, the adopter will have a home visit with an Adoption Representative. The home visit is time to see your home and to answer any questions that the you might have. It is asked that everyone in the household be present for this visit.
After your home visit, we look among the greyhounds we have available to find a good match for your home. This process usually takes a minimum of 1 week. If we do not have a greyhound that fits your particular needs, it may take several weeks. We ask that you be patient and wait for the right dog. Once adopted, you will agree that your greyhound was worth the wait.
There is a $205 adoption fee donation. GPA uses the fee to pay for neutering or spaying, vaccinations, heartworm testing and teeth cleaning. Remember, GPA/Tampa Bay is a non-profit organization. In addition, you also receive a collar and leash, and a GPA identification tag.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
