Available for Adoption

'We aim to see every greyhound adopted into a loving forever home.'

Our R2R Volunteers are invaluable to us, hence due to the escalating COVID-19 situation, as we finalise some current adoptions, we ask applicants to inform us when we are arranging Greyhound Meet & Greets or Home Checks of any family members who are not well or if there has been contact with anyone from overseas within the prior 14 days, so that we can make alternative arrangements.
To continue placing greyhounds in Adoptive Homes during the Corona period, it is vital that we respect social distancing guidelines and guard the health of our R2R volunteers.
R2R have been inundated with adoption and foster applications. While we greatly appreciate you wishing to assist us, R2R are also facing logistical challenges in a rapidly moving situation.
Therefore we have temporarily CLOSED ADOPTION and FOSTER APPLICATIONS - so please check back again in a week.
Maybe you could consider Sponsoring a Greyhound or making a Donation – both of which are tax deductible and will greatly help our greyhounds.

      All our greyhounds are health checked, desexed, vaccinated, micro-chipped, worm and flea treated.
      Since January 2019, Pet Greyhounds are NOT required by law to wear muzzles, but remain on-leash.

Adoption process

1 – Complete the online 'Application Form'.

2 – We will phone you for a chat and to provide you with more information about the greyhound, as well as answer any questions you may have. If you wish to proceed with the adoption we will arrange a time for a 'Meet & Greet' and a home yard inspection to ensure there is adequate fencing and shelter for the dog.

3 - A 'Meet & Greet' will be held with your family and any other pets you may have. All dogs are to be met in person.

4 - If all parties are happy to proceed with the adoption, the adoption fee is paid and you will have a 14 day trial period. If at any time during that fortnight you feel the greyhound does not suit your circumstances, they can be returned and the adoption fee will be refunded.

You will receive an Adoption Pack with your greyhound, which will include:

   🐾  Martingale Collar and Lead 

   🐾  Muzzle (Pet Greyhounds are NOT required by law to wear muzzles, but R2R will provide you with one)

   🐾  Warm Polar Fleece Coat

   🐾  Worming and Flea treatment dates 

   🐾  R2R Guide on caring for your new greyhound
