Adopt a Greyhound

Owning a Greyhound is like a big social event. Team Greyhound has monthly or weekly meet and greets, annual picnics and other events where you may participate with your Greyhound. Also, when you walk your Greyhound in public places be prepared to answer questions and get extra attention. It’s surprising how many people recognize the breed and will tell you how awesome your dog is.

Why adopt a Greyhound?

For starters, THEY ARE AWESOME!  They are clean, do not require much exercise and very rarely bark. People will likely stop you on the street when walking your Greyhound. But they only get one guess.  ITS A GREYHOUND!

What are the Adoption Fees?

Most of our Greyhounds will be what we refer to as a “Standard Adoption”.  The dogs have all been Spayed or neutered, Vaccinated and Micro-chipped.  They’ve also had a variety of other vet checks including test for intestinal parasites and are on heart-worm prevention medication.  For more information on what to expect, head over here for a more detailed description.

The adoption fee is $300.

We don’t often have senior dogs, but when we do we work with the same determination as we do with our other dogs to find them loving homes.  Each one of them is very special.  The seniors have had the same treatments and vetting as our other dogs.   For more information on what to expect, head over here for a more detailed description.

The adoption fee is $225.
