Local Groups Intro
For Prospective Adoptive Families
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.
Appointments can be made to view dogs, wherever they are being housed, at any reasonable time.
Each group has its own rules around adoption.
Note: Inclusion of a Greyhound Rescue group in the Local Groups 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.
