Charlotte, NC Area

Greyhounds available for adoption in the Charlotte NC Area.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS! Because of Covid 19 restrictions, the end of Florida greyhound racing in December, and the early closure of 3 more tracks during the pandemic, we have received far more applications than we can process in the coming months. The numbers of greyhounds available for adoption is falling quickly and will be nearly non existent by the end of this year.  AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FROM NEW ADOPTERS!! If you have already submitted an application and received confirmation from our volunteers, you WILL be processed in the order of receipt IF we have greyhounds available. If you are already a GC adopter and in our system, please contact one of us or your adoption rep for help.

She didn't win any of them and came in toward the back of the pack every time so was retired young. Mo is a tiny black female that raced at just 52lbs. She just turned 2 on July 1st. Her sire is the famous Gable Oscar and her dam is Gogo Ontario. Mo is very happy and friendly and still very puppy like. She loves to play and is great with kids. More as we get to know her.

Fostered by (location):

Shock just arrived from the Birmingham Track Adoption Kennel. She didn't actually race there, but was sent there to be placed with one of the adoption groups they send dogs to after the Palm Beach Race Track shut down suddenly. Her last race was May 9th. Shock had a very long career of 186 races, all at Palm Beach and most at the top A level. She even was good enough to be chosen to race in a couple of big Stakes races reserved for the best racers at the track. Shock raced at 66lbs and is a tall narrow girl that is taller than some of the smaller boys. She is gorgeous with long legs and a tiny waist and ears that stand straight up. Shock will turn 5 on August 8th. Her sire is SE's Jet Fuel and her dam is JS Grand Prix. She passed her cat test with some initial interest but when the cat slapped her she wouldn't go near it again. She was great with the small dog she met. She liked the kids she met too. Shock is excellent on leash and seems to be a pretty calm girl that made a little noise the first day in her kennel, but has been pretty quiet since then. She seems like a calm, well behaved girl that is pretty friendly. She seems like a sensitive girl that responds well to the slightest correction. She did great in her kennel on the ride to and from the vet and just laid down quietly. She fussed about the other dogs stepping on her when she was transported out of the crate with a couple of other females.

Port just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course adoption kennel. He didn't actually race there but was sent there to be placed with an adoption group since they transport dogs to groups all over the country. Port also raced a few of his 87 races at Tri State in WV. He wasn't a good racer mostly racing at the lower C and D levels and rarely winning but he placed enough to keep his career going. Port's litter were all named for different types of wine. He raced at 78lbs so is a larger guy. He will turn 4 December 16th. His sire is Rico's Vintage and his dam is Flying Navy Seal. Port is a very happy friendly guy who isn't phased or concerned about anything. When he first arrived he was very excitable about everything but he calmed down quickly and is doing well in foster care. He is not trying to mark in the house so far and is doing great on his potty training. He is a very strong guy that needs work on walking nicely on leash, he does pull and wants to check out everything. He passed his cat and small dog test. He was very curious about the cat and spent a lot of time sniffing it but was just as excited about everything else in the room. He didn't try to chase the cat. He should be OK with cats with some initial supervision. He seemed to like the other dogs he met and definitely loves people. More as we get to know him.

Black Male

Fostered by (location):
Doby, Salisbury NC
Adoption Status: Available for Adoption (Waiting List position not required)

Indy came in from the Orange Park Race Track due to a broken leg. He was quite the racers quickly moving up to the top A level and even competing in a few Stakes races. He raced 50 races and raced his last race March 8th at A level. Races were stopped because of Covid 19 but the dogs still had to run unofficial schooling races to maintain their fitness and he injured his leg in one of the practice runs. He had surgery in Jacksonville before we got him. He is having his splint changes and rehab with us. It usually takes 6 to 12 weeks for a break to heal so he should be ready for adoption sometime in June. He is a sweet guy that falls asleep during splint changes. He is a really good boy that is pretty laid back and friendly. Indy will turn 3 on November 3rd. His sire is Lenson Sanchez and his dam is WW's Federation. More as we get to know him.  NOTE-- because of his status with a rehabbed break, we do NOT require potential adopters to be on the waiting list.  He is available to previous GC adopters or anyone with an already-approved application to adopt.
