Adoption Application

So you've done all your homework, you've looked over our site and you're ready to start the process! Please fill out our adoption application below. There are quite a few questions that help us help you find the best greyhound match for your family. Please fill the application out completely.

Attention Returning GC adopters!  You do NOT need to file a completely new application if you're already on our active list.  We are working on a new program for you, but in the meantime contact your adoption rep or email Jamie Elrod (address below) for assistance in quickly processing your request to adopt again.  :-)

If you have any trouble accessing the application, email Application Coordinator Jamie Elrod

Be sure to check your spam filter regularly after you turn in your application. Our volunteers will usually contact you by email. If you do not get an email it is likely to be in your spam filter. If you aren't contacted within a few days PLEASE contact us again to be sure your application arrived.

Important Adoption Tips!

We CANNOT hold dogs because of our limited number of foster homes. Please apply to adopt when you are actually ready to adopt! Adoptions are first come first served based on when you complete the approval process - application approved and home visit by one of our adoption reps. The faster these can be arranged the more likely you are to get the dog you are interested in.

Being willing to drive to meet a greyhound in another area gives you more dogs to choose from! Our volunteers have already transported the dogs from the tracks in other states, transported the dogs to and from their vetting and have put a lot of time into fostering them. For this reason, we don't ask our foster homes to drive their fosters long distances to meet potential adopters. We hope adopters will be willing do the driving to meet their own dog or wait for a suitable dog to arrive in their area.

Finally, if you do not have cats or small animals please consider adopting one of our higher prey drive dogs that can't live with small animals. These always take longer to adopt out because there are fewer homes that can take them. They may go for months before the first person asks to meet them. These dogs are usually happy, friendly and very interactive and loving toward people and make amazing pets.
