MoKan Greyhound Adoption is a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation for the purpose of finding homes for ex-racing greyhounds and educating the public on the suitability and availability of greyhounds as pets. Our programs depend on donations and volunteers to accomplish our wonderful mission. All funds go directly to our programs; the organization is comprised solely of volunteers.
Our Adoption Process...
MoKan Greyhound Adoption does require that new adopters read either Adopting the Racing Greyhound by Cynthia Branigan or Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies by Lee Livingood prior to the home visit. If there are children 13 or younger in the home, we also require Living With Kids and Dogs...Without Losing Your Mind by Colleen Pelar.
Once we receive your application, it will be assigned to an adoption representative in your area. After the required reading is complete, your adoption representative will schedule an educational home visit. The results of your home visit will be turned over to the adoption committee for approval and once approved, your adoption representative will help you determine which dog is the best match for your home environment. The process can be as short as two weeks or as long as four. The adoption fee is $200.
