To Prevent Delays in Your Adoption, 
Before Submitting Your Application, Please:

  1. Ensure that you live in an area that we cover - typically we adopt to coastal SC and coastal GA (East of I-95). Feel free to contact us if you need information about other greyhound adoption groups closer to you.

  2. Ensure that vet records for your current pets are up-to-date.

  3. If your greyhound will be off lead in a fenced yard, ensure that your fence is in good repair and does not have openings through which your greyhound can escape.

  4. Read one of the required books.

  5. Submit your $15 non-refundable application fee using our paypal (Donate) button on this website. 

  6. Please understand that for the greyhound's safety, families with children age 6 and younger must have a fenced yard attached to the house with a door that opens directly from the house into the fenced yard. 

**Please understand that we currently have a wait list for adoption and once you submit your application, it may take a few months to find the right retired racer for your home.  Please do not make specific requests (color etc). **
