Our Adoption Process:The Adoption Process
If you'd like to adopt a greyhound, please complete and submit an adoption application. You can now apply online or download and mail or email applications to us.
Please allow a week for review of your application. Then we'll call or send you a note to schedule an interview.
John and Denise Davis, or one of their adoption representatives, will conduct an interview of all applicants. The interview, which usually lasts about an hour, helps determine that a greyhound is appropriate for you. It also helps us to find the dog best suited for your home. They review the application with you, and discuss your preferences for the greyhound (i.e. sex, age, personality, coat color, etc.). They'll also discuss the responsibilities of owning a greyhound, and can answer any questions or discuss any concerns that you have.
At the interview, or shortly after, they will let you know if you've been approved. There is usually no more than a three-week wait to get your greyhound. You will be contacted with an anticipated delivery date for you to pick up your greyhound at John and Denise's.
