Adoption Groups
 

There are adoption groups located throughout the United States and the world manned with volunteers ready to help any greyhound in need. It takes time and it takes money.

Most groups, like ours, have web sites to promote hounds available for adoption and to give information about the ex racers. It is our mission to help you adopt your new family member.  We can answer your questions, put you in touch with an adoption group near you, walk you through the process and provide support to you and your new greyhound family member after adoption.

If you are in our area, please contact us by phone or email and we can begin to help you find your new fast friend.

Our Adoption Fee is $265.  It is required that you read  Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies by Lee Livingood.
