Links - Local Groups Intro
For Prospective Adoptive
Most groups follow a fairly standard adoption
procedure and although they make independent decisions about the dogs
that they take, they often liase quite closely with other colleagues.
Some have the capacity to use particular kennels to care for the dogs
waiting for homes, and some function purely because generous supporters
will foster dogs. All groups have the problem of being asked to take more
dogs than they can accommodate, but will help, where possible, with advice
about advertising and home checking.
These group contacts do not keep greyhounds for
adoption at home. But appointments can be made to view dogs, wherever
they are being housed, at any reasonable time.
Note: Inclusion of a Greyhound
Rescue group in the following list does not indicate our endorsement.
You must evaluate any group that you deal with for yourself. A responsible
group will carry out home checks, or seek veterinary references for prospective
owners. A record of veterinary care to date, advice about the 'pros
and cons' of ownership, and a contact number for a representative of the
group should be available. You should be able to seek post adoption
support, and be confident that the group's policy enables you to return
the dog should insurmountable problems arise. Expect to sign an
adoption form and to make a donation to the group funds to help with costs.
