Filling out an application
A home visit
We want to make the adoption process as seamless as possible. We'll visit your home to ensure that everything is Greyhound friendly and to discuss any problems we may observe. We encourage potential adopters to check and read any available greyhound information. We recommend books and websites because you can’t have too much information.
You and your dog pick each other. We may suggest a few we feel would work well in your home, but we believe that to have that incredible greyhound bond there needs to be a mutual attraction. Sometimes what an adopter is looking for is not what they fall in love with, and sometimes the dog just picks you and there isn’t any more room for discussion.
We deliver the dog to their new family with their greyhound collar, muzzle and lead. The adopter is furnished with a copy of all medical records and a copy of the dog’s racing record if possible. We love to keep in touch with “our” dogs and encourage all adopters to come to "meet and greets" and show off their dogs and help educate the public on the joys of being owned by a greyhound.
Our adoption fee is $250.00. This fee covers:
Spaying or neutering
Bathing and flea treatment
Greyhound collar and lead
24 hour tech support
All dogs are vetted as soon as possible upon arrival at the kennel. They are not shown or available for adoption until this is done.
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.
