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 Greyhound Pet Adoption Florida/Southeast 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 $325. This is needed to pay for the vet bills during intake. If you were to pay for all of this individually with a vet, your cost would be at least $400. Donations received are non-refundable.

When a greyhound initially arrives to us, he/she 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, includes treatment if needed
  •   Fecal test, includes treatment if needed
  •   Neuter/spay
  •   Dental cleaning, includes extractions if needed
  •   All vaccinations up to date, includes Rabies, Bordetella, DHLPP
  •   Microchipping  
  •   Flea/tick medication (Bravecto), protects for 3 months from intake  
  •   Heartworm disease prevention (ProHeart), protects for 6 months from intake  

Additionally, we recommend the following reading prior to bringing a retired racing greyhound into your home:
