Adopt a

Greyhound

Thank you!

 

Thank you for your interest in adopting a greyhound! Greyhounds make wonderful pets and will give you many years of love and devotion.

 

Adopting a greyhound is a serious responsibility requiring a long-term commitment.  Racing 2 Rehome assesses applications to ensure that everyone understands their responsibilities, and to address the suitability and permanence of each greyhound placed in a home.

We match every dog in our adoption program to the specific needs, personalities and situations of both the greyhound and potential adoption home. Each potential family has a home check done prior and a 2 week trial to ensure everyone loves each other.

CATS:

Most greyhounds cannot live with CATS, so unless the greyhound's profile states that it is Cat-Friendly, please assume that you cannot adopt the dog if you own a cat.

Is a Greyhound Right For You?

 

Adopting a greyhound is a noble, commendable thing to do. However, as with any pet, you should learn about the breed and prepare yourself for the lifestyle changes that will occur.  

 

Ask yourself some basic questions:

  • How long your dog wil be home alone?

  • Providing regular and emergency health care?

  • How much food will they require?

  • Where will you leave them when you go away?

  • What other pets or family members do they need to get along with?

  • What activities do you want to do with your dog?

  • What kind of dog personality will make the best match?

  • Do you want an indoor pet, a true couch potato who is most comfortable inside?

 

This is not the exhaustive list of questions you should ask yourself, but it’s a start. Adopting a greyhound will be rewarding, exciting and challenging at times…as with any other life adjustment you make.
