About Our Rescue Group:Our mission is to educate the public about these wonderful dogs and find them loving, quality, forever homes. Our interest in the adoption doesn’t stop when we place a dog. We offer 24 hour greyhound support, and try to work with the adopter and dog to solve any problems that may arise. If at any time the dog is no longer wanted or we feel the home is not beneficial to either parties the dog always has a home here with us.
Come Meet our Pets:Every Saturday & Sunday at the Petsmart in Roanoke, VA.

Our Adoption Process:Our adoption process includes :
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.
