Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We place retired racing greyhounds in adoptive homes throughout Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

About Our Rescue Group:

It's a Grey Area Greyhound Adoption was founded in January of 2010 by Lesley Tierney Ezkovich and Brittaney Spruill. Through our combined years of experience and a dedicated group of people to support us, we formed It's a Grey Area Greyhound Adoption Group. We are dedicated to the proper placement of the retired racing greyhound along with the formation of a fun, committed greyhound group. We are a 501c3 organization.

Our commitment to greyhounds continues beyond the day we hand the leash to the new family. We are here for whatever an adoptive family could need. In good times and bad. We are there for the greyhounds we place, as well as those we have never met before.

Come Meet our Pets:

We put all of our available greyhounds in foster homes to teach them all about retired life. Because of this, we ask that you contact us to set up a time to meet the greyhounds.
We often have public greet events in Mobile, AL, Mandeville, LA and Baton Rouge, LA. Other events are also scheduled in other areas. More information on public events can be found on the calendar on our website: http://itsagreyarea.com/calendar.html You can also contact us to set up a private meeting at our boarding facility in Pearl River, LA.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption application can be found at: http://itsagreyarea.com/howtoadopt.html

Someone will contact you within 24 hours of receiving your application to begin the adoption process.

You will be matched with an Adoption Coordinator in your area and that person will arrange a time to do a home visit.

After the home visit, we will match your family with the greyhound we feel would be the best fit for you. If, at that time, should we have more than one dog available that would make a good addition to your family, then you will certainly be able to make that choice.

When you receive your dog, you will sign the adoption contract, pay the $200 adoption fee and make your new greyhound an official member of your family.

If, along the way, you have any questions, someone will always be available to help you throughout the process.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
