Greyhound Options, Inc. was formed in 1995 by a small group of volunteers devoted to finding loving homes for retired racing greyhounds. We do not operate a kennel, but choose to provide these dogs the stability, care and comfort only possible through a foster home network. Fostering also enables us to truly evaluate the temperament and behavior of each dog in our care, so we can best match adopter with dog. In 2008 we passed the wonderful milestone of placing our 1000th greyhound!
Because we are a small, volunteer-run group, we ask that you do not email us to inquire about specific dogs. Instead, please visit www.greyhoundoptions.org to fill out an application, which is the first step in our adoption process.
Adopters must fill out an application (available on our website or by mail) and have a home visit before being approved for adoption. Minimum adoption donation is currently $450 (for U.S. dogs) and $700 (for Irish dogs), and an adoption agreement must be completed. All of our greyhounds are spayed/neutered, vet-checked, heartworm tested, have had a dental cleaning and are current on recommended vaccinations. We require all dogs to be kept indoors and leash-walked or let out in fenced areas only. If an adopter can no longer care for his/her greyhound, it must be returned to the care of Greyhound Options, Inc.
