ultimately choose a greyhound who will best suit their circumstances and enrich their lives.

  • We help adopters choose dogs by providing detailed information about each dog and offering suggestions about which dogs would work best in the adopter’s environment.

  • We do not place a dog in a home without the adopters full involvement in the decision-making process.

  • All families with children ages 5 and younger must have a fenced in yard to adopt.

  • Please click on the application tab to complete the application.

Below are our current Available Retirees.  Feel free to pick one, or several, to become your new family pet!  Remember, greyhounds are like potato chips…you can’t have just one.

Note:  We have a large number of applications and we are working them as fast as we can.  If you submitted an application please be patient….we are getting more greyhounds in and will be working to help you find your fast friend.

Hello my name is Tulip and I am a special little girl that is looking for my forever home

Hi My name is Tulip and I came to GRACE from Kansas. I was bred to race but didn't make it that far. My mom PJ Runthemdown also named Tulip was already adopted by a GRACE Family and now it is my turn.

I am a bit reserved so I will need a quiet home that has patience and will work with me. I am partial to women; men are scary. I have become a bit braver and come and get pets from my foster mom. I spend time outside my safe area and have even starting playing with toys.

I’m real nervous when people look me straight in the eyes. I’m even getting brave enough to come look at the visitors that come to the house. I will look around corners to see people that come to the house or stand behind the other dogs and sneak in to get a pet.

I have not had a problem with counter surfing in my new foster home.

I have no problem with the stairs. I am doing better on the leash and found out that I like to go for walks in the park and I have been doing better at going in and out of the car. I have found out that I like to run and play with the other greyhounds...but if they start going too fast I will stand and watch. I go in and out of the house with no problems.

I’m trying to expand my horizons but it’s tough when your real shy.

Stairs are no problem and shiny floors are usually okay, I’m working on them! Squeaky toys are pretty cool and I get along greyt with my foster sisters Finley and Ellen. Food is probably my favorite thing EVER, I just love it all. Bananas and eggs are some of my favs. Taking walks in the city are fun and I like car rides too. I have a foster hooman brother, he’s young and we get along greyt.

Life is good, I’m just waiting for my forever home.. did I mention I LOVE cuddling too!

I am a sweetheart but would do better in a home without cats. I find them too interesting and would like to chase them. I am super sweet and lovable and will do great in a home with another dog or greyhound.

I really like my foster sister Hallie and if possible I would like to find a place with her. Two is always better than one.

Hi everyone, my name is Swifty aka Suzy Q and I am a sweet and loving girl. I was already placed once but I found out that I would like it better if I had a friend. As many of you know greyhounds are used to being with other greyhounds for the majority of their lives...so it is not uncommon for them to want to have another friend when they retire.

I am doing great in my foster home with the other greyhounds and have had no other problems since my return to GRACE. I do pretty well with cats too. I like to play and run so if you have a fenced in yard I would think that is wonderful.

Do you have a place for me in your home???? I am waiting!
