Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Step 2) "Reference Check" -- An adoption volunteer will call your references and your Vet to discuss your potential adoption with them
Step 3) "Getting to Know You" -- The Volunteer will call/e-mail you to discuss your lifestyle and family to determine which greyhound is best suited for your home
Step 4) "Home Visit" -- The Volunteer will come to your home to complete the "Home Visit." This is for safety purposes only, and we appreciate you allowing us to give you suggestions as to how to make your home safer for your new family member.
Step 5) "Dog Arrival" -- The Volunteer will schedule a time to bring the dog to your home. The Volunteer will ensure you and the dog are comfortable. At this time we will collect the $200 adoption fee and hold until the adoption is finalized, if during the trial period you feel a greyhound is not for you, the check will be returned to you when we come to pick up the dog.
Step 6) "Trial Period and Follow Up" -- We will call/email you several times during the first 2 weeks to ensure you and your new greyhound are adjusting well.
Step 7) "Adoption Day" -- After the two week trial period, if everyone is comfortable the adoption is finalized by completing the GPA Adoption Contract. At this time ownership of the dog is officially transferred, including Vet Records, Proof of Heartworm medication, and your payment receipt.
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.
