After we receive your application, we will contact you to set up a "field check." A field check is a home visit by one of our representatives and helps us to ensure that our greyhounds go to the best homes possible.
Because we insist on doing thorough field checks, it is the policy of GPA FL/SE to place our greyhounds somewhat locally. Exceptions have been made for special needs dogs and/or special circumstances.
After a positive field check the prospective adopter makes an appointment to come to the kennel and meet the dogs! The adoption donation is $250.
When a greyhound initially arrives to us he is given a flea bath and blood is drawn to perform a heartworm test and fecal test. If all tests are normal the dog is spayed or neutered and a thorough dental cleaning is performed while under anesthesia.
We perform the following Tests/Procedures for all of our adoptable Greyhounds:
Heartworm Test with treatment if needed
Fecal Testing with treatment if needed
Neuter or Spay
Dental Cleaning including extractions if needed
All Vaccinations including Rabies, Bordetella, DHLPP
Additionally, we recommend the following reading prior to bringing a retired racing greyhound into your home:
