We hold meet an greets at the various locations througout Richmond, visit our website for times and dates. We encourage you to come out and visit with the hounds and see how loving they can really be.
Once James River Greyhounds receives your application, a confirmation e-mail is sent to you advising that JRG has received your application. A short phone interview is then conducted reviewing your application, answering any questions and scheduling a home visit. This process will help ensure each greyhound is placed into his or her best forever home. Home visits are conducted by one or two JRG representatives, who may bring along a greyhound. This way, you can interact with a greyhound for an extended period of time, see how a greyhound behaves in your home, have questions/concerns addressed, and be well prepared for bringing a greyhound home.
Once your application is approved, you are notified and the adoption is scheduled. If your greyhound is arriving directly from the track, you are welcomed and encouraged to meet and bathe your new hound prior to taking them home. If your greyhound is already in foster care, we will arrange for a time that is convenient to bring your hound home.
