Loving greyhounds will change your life and theirs. Learning about them is the first step in determining if a greyhound is the dog for you. The adoption process outlined below is similar for all good greyhound adoption groups around the world.
- LEARN about the wonders of greyhounds as pets – Read Greyhound Guide on-line or Purchase your own copy in booklet or Kindle format.
- Over three hundred volunteer adoption groups are waiting to show you the wonders of greyhounds. Contact one near you. See Available Hounds. Learn about Best Kept Secrets in the greyhound world.
- Once you contact a local group, you’ll meet them and get your questions answered. The adoption representative will have questions for you. They’ll do a home visit. You’ll complete an application. A hound who fits your lifestyle will be yours to love soon.
- Adoption fees range from $200 – $500. This doesn’t even cover the work and cost required before a hound goes into a home. Spay/neuter, dental, shots, tick-titer tests, nails, bathing, housing, food, transportation, advertising and more are all part of the monetary outlay of volunteer adoption groups. The tremendous amount of time involved to get a greyhound ready for a home, and to find a good home are all generously donated by those who know greyhounds make the best pets. And they want you to know too!
