|Who are we?
We would like to introduce you to Allies for Greyhounds of West Michigan, Inc. a 501c3 non-profit greyhound adoption group registered in the state of Michigan. The following people have come together to help educate the public about these wonderful dogs, find loving forever homes for them and offer support to anyone who asks. We are Dave & Pat Conrad, Frank & Michelle Yancey, Jeremiah Litterell & Denise McIntyre, and Mary Huffman. We have all been with other greyhound adoption groups for 6 to 10 years. For many reasons we've found ourselves mixed together and one day came to realize that we wanted to create a new family, and Allies for Greyhounds of West Michigan, Inc. was born on October 27, 2006.
How to adopt?
First we have you go to our website (www.afgwm.org) and fill out an on-line application. Don't worry if you don't have internet access you can contact Allies for Greyhounds at (866)929-3647 and have a paper application sent to you. When we receive your application a local volunteer will contact you and set up a "Home-Visit" so that we can sit down face to face and get to know each other and answer questions you may have. The home-visit is probably the most important part of the adoption process. Once an applicant is approved for adoption we will help you pick out a dog that is suitable for you and your family. We don't "force" a dog on you but we help you pick a dog that is going to fit your needs. The adoption fee of $ 225.00 covers: Spay/Neuter, Teeth Cleaning, Shots Updated, three months supply of Heart-worm Preventative, Martingale Style Collar (specially designed for Greyhounds), Leash, and of course a Greyhound. Along with this, you will also have access to a large Greyhound community where Greyhound owners pride themselves with their knowledge and love of this wonderful breed.
What areas to you serve?
We primarily serve all of West Michigan and into Northern Indiana, however exceptions have been made on a case-by-case basis.
