GLOHW works closely with greyhound adoption groups in the U.S. to find the right “forever home” for every greyhound that we bring into our organization. In order to do this, we do not “warehouse” dogs. Your greyhound will be selected specifically for you based on a profile that is created uniquely for you and your family by members of GLOHW’s Adoption Committee. The profile is based on information provided to us in your adoption application and from a home visit. This process ensures that the best match possible is made between the adopter and the greyhound. All newly arrived track dogs spend approximately two weeks in foster care in order to ensure that they do indeed match the profile for the adoptive family. While in foster care, the dogs also begin to learn the basics of living in a home. Occasionally, GLOHW is contacted regarding re-homing or rescuing a greyhound in-need. As with adoptions of newly retired track dogs, re-home or rescue dogs are evaluated by an experienced greyhound foster family in order to determine what type of home would best suit the dog’s needs. Adoption Application Process Please download an adoption application. If you are not a current member of GLOHW, you will also need to complete a membership application. You can either fill out the applications electronically and email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or send it by regular mail to the address found on the form. Once your application is received, it will be assigned to two members of GLOHW’s Adoption Committee. They will contact you to arrange a convenient time to come for a home visit. Please be patient – GLOHW is a volunteer run organization – you...Read More
