Adoption Application

IMPORTANT NOTICE- 1/1/2021

The majority of greyhounds racing in the US were racing in Florida, until all of those tracks closed at the end of 2020.  We only have a very limited number of greyhounds available and don't expect to get many more.

If you have NOT adopted from us before: Please fill out the form below if you are in our adoption areas and you will be contacted to complete the approval process with a home visit IF we have a greyhound available that will work for your home. 

Greyhound Crossroads Adoption Requests


If you adopted from Greyhound Crossroads previously: Please check our available hounds page and contact your adoption rep or Jamie Elrod(below) to make arrangements to meet the dog you are interested in. 
 

We are beyond saddened that Greyhound Crossroads has reached the point where are forced to turn people away.  This is a heartbreaking situation that we would have never believed could happen to our community and not a decision made lightly. As a group formed of dedicated and passionate supporters of the American Racing Greyhound, we will do everything possible to place every greyhound into the right home until we no longer have the option to do so. If you have questions, concerns, or feel you have a situation not addressed by the options above, please feel free to contact me by email so that I can assist you.

Important Adoption Tips!

We CANNOT hold dogs because of the limited number of greyhounds. Adoptions are first come first served based on when you complete the approval process - adoption request approved and home visit by one of our adoption reps. The faster these can be arranged the more likely you are to get the dog you are interested in.

Being willing to drive to meet a greyhound! Our volunteers have already transported the dogs from the tracks in other states, transported the dogs to and from their vetting and have put a lot of time into fostering them. For this reason, we don't ask our foster homes to drive their fosters long distances to meet potential adopters. We hope adopters will be willing do the driving to meet their own dog.

Finally, if you do not have cats or small animals consider adopting one of our higher prey drive dogs that can't live with small animals. These always take longer to adopt out because there are fewer homes that can take them. These dogs are usually happy, friendly and very interactive and loving toward people and make amazing pets.
