We have four beautiful young greyhounds currently available for adoption! They are sweet and friendly. Please contact us for more information about these wonderful dogs!
Thank you for your interest in a most noble and extraordinary breed of dog. "Amazing Greys" is an all volunteer, non-profit organization, whose goal is to educate the public on the retired racing greyhound. We work closely with the racetrack to find homes for these truly "greyt" dogs.
Our foster home is in Tracy, California and our adoption service is available to all of Northern California. The dogs stay in our foster home for at least two weeks so we can work up a complete personality profile for every dog.
These greyhounds actually live in our Tracy home where we begin the process of acclimating them to their new life as 45 mile per hour couch potatoes. Then the transition to a new adoptive family is a relatively easy one.
In order to be eligible to adopt, you must meet the following basic requirements.
You must be over 21
You should own your home or have a rental that allows large dogs. We will need a copy of your lease or a letter from your landlord at some point during the application process.
All pets in the household must be current on vaccinations.
Your county or city pet limits should not be exceeded (please check this by calling your county animal control office.)
You must be able to take on the financial responsibility of owning a dog (typical office visits cost $50 and emergency room fees are about $250 prior to any treatment.)
