Our Adoption Process:

We require all of our potential adopters to fill out an adoption application before a dog can be placed on hold. We are available for adoption consultations every day between 11 am and 3 pm. Arrangements for appointments outside of this time frame will be considered on a case by case basis. Our adoption fee is $350 and includes all vaccinations, spay/neuter, dental cleaning, harness, collar, leash and dental kit. We conduct a home visit before our greyhounds are placed into a home. This may be done prior to the adoption or on the day of the adoption. We will also introduce the greyhound to any other pets in the home at this time.

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.
