Our application page is now closed.  We're sorry to disappoint any potential adopters, but our supply of dogs is sufficient only to satisfy currently approved applications.
We encourage those still wishing to adopt to seek out a National Greyhound Association-approved greyhound adoption program in their areas. A list of adoption programs nationally is available here. 

If your application already has been approved, call for an appointment to view available hounds.  

Pay your application and adoption fees online though our store.
Our adoption fee is $350. A non-refundable $50 application fee is due with your completed application. Your $50 deposit will be applied to the adoption fee once the application is approved.  We thank you for your interest in adopting a retired racer!

With the end of the adoption program drawing closer, we extend our most sincere thanks to those who have supported us with donations of money, goods, and services over the years.


Please make sure to cancel any recurring donations and select new charities to support through Amazon Smile, Kroger, and similar programs.


We thank you for all you've contributed since 1991 to our program's success.
