Make a Fast Friend - Adopt a Greyhound!
We always need foster homes. Won't you consider giving fostering a try?
GPA Foster Homes-URGENT Need! Emergency Or Temporary Foster Homes Desperately Needed!!!
Fostering means taking a retired racer into your home in one of two ways: for a short period of time (2-3 weeks) or a longer term (until a permanent home can be found.) When we receive Greyhounds from the track, we give them any medical care they need, their required vaccinations, a teeth cleaning and a bath. The next step is going into foster care, and that's where we need a great deal of help. Our entire program is based upon the foster home system, and our need is always high.
