Foster families are our most important volunteers. Without them, GPA-CT cannot fulfill its mission. Foster families open their homes to newly retired greyhounds, helping them adjust to a life of retirement. Greyhounds are very intelligent and learn very quickly, particularly when given daily affection. Foster families volunteer to share their lives with a greyhound until they are ready to be adopted and are rewarded with knowing they helped one more hound find their forever home.

Foster families help GPA-CT get to know the dogs and find out what their personalities are before they are placed in their new homes. During the time they are in foster care, the greyhounds are taken to the veterinarian, get their annual shots, are spayed or neutered, have their teeth cleaned, are tested for heartworms and put on heartworm preventative. During their visit, they are also evaluated for any injuries or health problems. Once this is done, GPA-CT begins the process of finding a home for the greyhound.

The main limitation on the number of dogs GPA-CT can bring into its adoption program is the number of volunteer foster families. If you would like to volunteer to foster a newly retired racing greyhound, please contact the Placement Coordinator or Foster Coordinator or download a foster application [PDF].
