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.

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.
