STATEMENT RELATED TO THE FUTURE OF GREYHOUND ADOPTIONS
The downsizing of American Greyhound racing (e.g., track closures in Florida) has sharply reduced the numbers of racing Greyhounds being bred in the United States. A shortage of former racing Greyhounds available for adoption is the immediate result — one that may be permanent. GPA Atlanta/Southeastern Greyhound Adoption intends to continue operating as the adoption program of the Southeastern Greyhound Club, but former American racing Greyhounds will only be sporadically available while we work with other sources for the breed (e.g., former Irish racing Greyhounds). We will continue to accept adoption applications, but please submit your application with the intention of being on our waiting until we have Greyhounds available for adoption. Our Screening and Placement team will contact you only as Greyhounds become available for adoption and we have a Greyhound for you.
Volunteers are the life-blood of Southeastern Greyhound Adoption, and it requires a tremendous amount of individuals and labor-hours “behind the scenes” to receive the Greyhounds from the track, and to clean, feed, and care for the dogs prior to their adoption.
FOSTER A GREYHOUND
A foster home is a temporary home for one of our Southeastern Greyhound Adoption Greyhounds awaiting adoption. Being a foster home entails welcoming a hound into your home to help start the acclimation to its new life as a family pet.
