Greyhounds are adopted by an application procedure only.

You must agree to keep your dog as an indoor pet.

When we receive your application, we will check your references and call to set up an appointment for a home visit. Upon approval of your application, we will set up an appointment at the adoption center.

we will match your request with the greyhounds presently in our kennel. Hollydogs profiles every greyhound and uses these profiles to match a greyhound with you. Remember that greyhounds are retired athletes, some are very young and others are older. All of them deserve a loving, caring home for life. Do not forget that animals do not discriminate, they love unconditionally. Personality is always the key. Together we will select your new family member. Once you have selected your pet, there will be a contract to complete and adoption fee.

Your dog will be able to go home in approximately one week. When you open your heart to a greyhound you will be rewarded many times over!!! Remember that PETS ARE FOR LIFE. Thank you for your interest in saving a life!!

Hollydogs Greyhound Adoption

Application Form

Pet ownership is a serious responsability. Hollydogs Greyhound Adoption feels that each greyhound adopted is to become a vital member of his new family. Each person that adopts a greyhound will not only  be aware of that responsability, but also be capable of and willing to accept that responsability morally, physically and financially and understand that greyhound pets are to live indoors. Not every person who desires to own a pet should own a greyhound. All greyhounds deserve a home, PLEASE do not discriminate them. They will love unconditionally.  The following questionaire has been designed to aid both you and Hollydogs in deciding if you and/or your family is indeed adequately prepared to assume the type of responsible ownership which we are endeavouring to assure for our adoptive Greyhounds. You must agree to have a volunteer visit your home.
