BEGINNING JANUARY 1st, 2016 Our non-refundable adoption fee is $275. We accept cash, check, and Paypal. A deposit of $200 is due when you pick out a Greyhound that has not yet been vetted (applied toward total fee). After your Grey is vetted and is ready to go home, the remaining $75 is due before you can take him/her home.

Things You Might Need Before Bringing Your Hound Home
Prior to bringing your hound home, choose what type of food you want your hound fed! Then bring us some of the new food and we will swap your hound from the Diamond High Energy over to the new food. If you wish to keep them on Diamond High Energy, you may find it at any local Petsmart, Petco, Pet Supplies Plus, Tractor Supply, feed and farm stores, etc.
Food On Hand - we recommend Diamond Pet Foods - High Energy, Premium Adult, or Performance formula, any of the Diamond Naturals formulas, or Diamond Naturals Grain Free formulas; Pro Plan; Purina ONE; Kirkland's Chicken And Rice; etc... we DO NOT recommend and HIGHLY ADVISE AGAINST junk foods like Kibbles N Bits, Beneful, Alpo, Ol' Roy, etc. as these have been known to cause diarrhea, pancreatitis, severe dental disease, and extremely shortened life spans in Greyhounds.
A Greyhound Sized Crate - one that is at least 48" long, 36" tall and at least 30" wide. Usually most crates that size will be large enough for a Greyhound although there are some exceptions to that! Remember, it is easier to get a Greyhound into a crate that is too large than it is to try and "stuff" him into one that is too small!
Food and Water Bowls
Dog Beds - blankets from your local Salvation Army Store work GREYT! A queen sized comforter folded in half, then folded in half again makes a perfect sized bed for your hound's crate. Other inexpensive options include memory foam bath mats as a base under your hound's blankets, a twin comforter stuffed into a child's sleeping bag (more thrift store finds!) and "papason" mattresses. Don't forget, a child's toddler bed mattress also make a great bed!
Toys - most Greyhounds love stuffy toys, some good chew toys (beef rawhide chews are perfect just don't use the ones with knotted ends, they pose a choking hazard!)
