Important: Please Read

Thank you for submitting an application to Allies for Greyhounds!

An Allies for Greyhounds volunteer will be contacting your vet and checking your listed references.  Please contact your vet office and authorize the release of information to Allies for Greyhounds; this will speed up the adoption process.  While your application is being processed we suggest taking this time to do the required reading, material should be read prior to the home visit being scheduled:

“Adopting the Racing Greyhound” – Cynthia A Branigan

“Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies” – Lee Livingood

“The Best Finish: Adopting a Retired Racing Greyhound” – Carolyn Raeke

If you have children we also ask you to read one of the following:

“Living with Kids and Dogs” – Colleen Pelar

“Child-Proofing Your Dog” – Brian Killcommons

All of the listed books can be found at your local library, bookstore or on-line.  The listed material will help answer many of the questions about retired racing Greyhounds.  If you have a retired racer or have had a retired racer in the past, the material is not required, but please consider brushing up on the reading as a refresher for yourself.

If you have additional questions please feel free to submit them through the “Contact Us” portion of the website.

***Please note that there is a 4-6 week wait time for application processing.  If you are not contacted by a volunteer after the 4-6 weeks, then please contact us***

Thank You in Advance

Allies for Greyhounds
