ADOPTION

Racing for survival

Greyhounds live their lives on the race track, not knowing what outside daily life is really about. They do not know what it’s like to be a “normal” dog. Sickness and injuries have claimed greyhounds’ lives. They have been forced to race in extreme conditions from subzero temperatures to heat despite their lack of body fat and thin coats.

Your adoption fee covers pretty much everything, including spaying/neutering, vaccinations, heartworm tests, thyroid test, bloodwork and dental cleaning.

Lovable and fun

There is nothing better and more rewarding than seeing greyhounds be “normal dogs” and in turn, they will change your world.
