We bring retired racing greyhounds in from all over the United States - Kansas, Florida, Arkansas, Alabama, Connecticut, Colorado - anywhere where there is a hound in need of an adoption group. At our Dog Drops we bathe the dogs and do an initial inspection of their veterinary needs; before giving them to their foster families.
All of our hounds are placed in foster homes to be prepared for their adoptions; this way, we are able to learn what type of home environment would be best for the hound. While in foster care our hounds learn proper house manners and are taken to community outreach events to show what Greyt pets they make.
Any and all necessary veterinary care is done prior to adoption; every hound receives: Spay/Neuter, all required shots, testing for 4 common tick-borne diseases, and a dental. Additionally, they are provided with a martingale collar and lead, muzzle, 6 months of Heartworm Preventative, one weeks supply of dogfood, and a GPA/Nashville identification tag at adoption.
Greyhound Pets of America - Nashville works collaboratively with adopters, humane and other greyhound groups, and the racing industry to find homes for retired racers. Each year, 20,000 greyhounds retire from U.S. tracks in need of new homes.
We use the Internet as a platform upon which to show our available retired racing greyhounds. Potential adopters always always know what dogs are available, at any time, because of our diligence in keeping this list up to date. Visit our site today! www.GPANashville.org
Within 48 hours of the receipt of an application, a GPA/N Adoption Representative will make a follow up call, and the Home Visit is generally scheduled at this time. GPA/N requires the reading of "Retired Racing Greyhounds for Dummies" by Lee Livingood prior to adoption, as well as the Home Visit.
After the Application is approved and the Home Visit is completed, a mutually acceptable time to transfer the hound is chosen.
GPA/Nashville maintains a YahooGroups message board
(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GPANashville/) in order to assist with any questions that may arise for a new adopter.
Only through teamwork will 100% Post Racing adoption ever be attained. Join us in this quest!!
