Show me greyhounds currently available for adoption.

1. Decide if a greyhound is the right dog for you. Do your homework by researching the breed. Read as much as you can about the greyhound. (“Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies” by Lee Livingood is an excellent resource.) Come to GPA-CT Meet & Greets and visit the dogs. Talk to greyhound owners about what living with and caring for a greyhound is really like. Now is the time to ask all your questions.

2. If you decide that a greyhound is the right dog for you, download an adoption application. Please read all the information carefully and make sure you understand GPA-CT's policies. Complete and return the adoption application along with your deposit.

3. After your completed application is received, the Placement Coordinator will call you and will review the application with you in order to fully understand what type of greyhound you are looking for.

4. Work closely with the Placement Coordinator to choose a greyhound that fits your personality and lifestyle. Take your time and visit as many greyhounds as possible to find one that fits your family and lifestyle. Make the best decision you can for both you and your future greyhound.

5. After you have chosen a greyhound, the Placement Coordinator will arrange a visit with the greyhound at your home. If all goes well at this visit, your application will receive final approval and a date will be set for placement of your greyhound. (The remaining balance of your adoption donation is due at placement.)

6. Welcome your greyhound into your home as a member of your family and enjoy a wonderful life together!
