Please read below for information on our adoption process!
Our application/adoption process can take up to 4 weeks to complete. GRoNY takes the adoption
process seriously. Adopting a Greyhound is a life commitment and we make sure each Greyhound
is paired with the correct family. Please be patient with us as we are all volunteers that work full
time in addition to running the rescue.
Numbers 1 and 2 of the adoption process below can be completed out of order; meaning that
number 2 can be completed before number 1. We encourage our adopters to visit a few clinics
before choosing a Greyhound, but it’s not mandatory to attend more than one clinic.
1. Attend GRoNY clinic and meet with at least two board members and the Greyhound you are
interested in. Each Greyhound has his/her own personality and may not be suited to your family.
We strive to pair up a Greyhound with the perfect family to make sure the adoption process goes
2. Fill out the Adoption Application and email the completed application to
firstname.lastname@example.org or to the foster parent for the Greyhound you are
interested in or you can drop it off at an adoption clinic. Foster parent emails can be found on our
website www.greyhoundrescueofny.com on the adoption page. Please note that GRoNY calls all
references and your Veterinarian. This process can take up to a week or more to complete
depending on the situation.
3. The foster parent of the Greyhound you are interested in will contact you to let you know if
your application has been approved or denied.
4. The foster parent will set up a home visit to see how the Greyhound does in your home. This is
typically a short hour or two visit with two board members.
5. The adoption takes place typically on a Friday night or Saturday morning so the Greyhound has
time to adjust before you go to back to work. If one member of the family is home all day the
adoption can take place on a week night. Please note that GRoNY has the right at any time to
repossess a Greyhound for any reason and without notice. GRoNY will repossess a Greyhound if
we deem the Greyhound is not in a safe environment or is not being care for properly. We take the
care of all our Greyhounds seriously before and after the adoption process.
6. Love your Greyhound for life!!
