Our Adoption Process:Adopting a greyhound is a lifetime commitment. The greyhound can be expected to live 12 to 14 years. To ensure the safety and health of the greyhound, the following "Adoption Requirements" must be complied with explicitly. Please do not consider adoption if you will not be able to meet this lifetime commitment or adhere to these requirements.
Please also consider financial responsibility in adopting a greyhound - this responsibility does not end with the Adoption Fee of $225.00. While greyhounds tend to be a pretty healthy breed, there are veterinary costs associated with caring for any dog.
