While we are thrilled to have our new kennel up and running, we still endeavor to place senior and/or greyhounds needing a little more personal time and care into foster homes.  Our foster homes consist of experienced volunteers and greyhound owners who provide shelter to greyhounds in their own homes giving them love, tender loving care, transport to vet appointments, grooming and anything else they might need while they are in our system.

Most dogs that are “Forever Fosters?” are dogs that are seniors who have been in our system for a while, sometimes years, or dogs that have special needs above and beyond what many adopters can handle.  Most “Forever Fosters?” are available for adoption, but generally they are only suitable for experienced adopters or those with a very specific home environment.

Our “Forever Fosters?” are listed below.  They are surrounded by people who love them and have plenty of canine companionship at all times. 

If you can't adopt a dog and you'd like to help, please sponsor one of our “Forever Fosters?”. Your sponsorship donation will help defray the costs involved in making our long term fosters comfortable while they wait for their forever homes.

If you're interested in adopting one of these dogs, please contact the Vice President closest to you listed below or click the "Contact for more information" button included with each dog.

Check
Check
Tag No: 5593
Registered Name: Greys Checkntime
Date of Birth: October 4, 2003
Color: Brindle
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, not recommended with small dogs
Kid Friendly: No
Location: Foster home
Larger photos:  Yes, click the links in Check's comment area
Comments: Check is sweet, happy, friendly and loves being around people. She is still very active for her age and you would never guess that she is 13+ years old. Check was a brood mom and would do best in a home without children. She occasionally likes to play with toys. She has done well with other greyhounds, but can be dominant. Although she has done well meeting small dogs, we do not recommend that she live with them full time. Check is just darling and will melt your heart.  Check was our April Dog of the MonthKennel UpdateCheck loves walks and often goes with our volunteers on walks on some local trails.  She is affectionate and happy – just a wonderful lady!  Foster home updateCheck, or “Checkers” as I like to call her is doing GREYT! She is absolutely a love. She loves people and I have to say, is the easiest dog I have ever had. Check always lets me know when she needs to go outside. She loves to go for walks. She has finally learned to lay down in the car when I am driving. I would never guess that she is 13 years old. She has lots of spunk and loves to play with her animals, she gathers them all onto her bed and then tosses them around! Checkers loves to follow me around and if I had to rename her, it would be Shadow. She is not too good with dogs that are not Greyhounds. She has learned to tolerate my brother’s Puggle, but I would never leave them alone together. She adores my parents Greyhound Bella Rose, but she also likes to eat Bella’s food and bump Bella out of the way…..so she is a bit bossy and Bella is just a good match because she does not mind. When I go to work, I drop Checkers off at my parents, so she gets to spend the day with my folks and Bella.

They were very bonded and would not do well without each other so they were placed in the same Forever Foster home. Unfortunately, Yoda passed away recently.  Jada will remain in her Forever Foster home where she is much loved.

Mac

Mac
Tag No: 4939
Registered Name: Electric Explore
Date of Birth: January 22, 2005
Date of Passing: June 3, 2017

Mac, another of our forever fosters, went to the Rainbow Bridge today
surrounded by his foster mom Kim and his biggest fan Joannie.

He may have been toothless but that never stopped him from enjoying
breakfast, dinner and his favorite treat, frosty paws. Thanks to a wonderful
volunteer, Mac was able to enjoy many frosty paws these past few months.

He was a lover - everyone he met was required to pet him and rub his neck.
He loved just putting his head in his foster mom's lap getting lots of love.

Mac was kid, cat and small dog friendly making him the perfect ambassadog
for booths and meet and greets. He would naturally gravitate towards
children and enjoyed every minute of love and attention he got from them.

Mac was also known as the world's greatest derper. His tongue was long and
hung out of his mouth all the time and he was so proud of that!

Run fast and free sweet Mac-a-doodle-do. You will be missed.

Signe

Signe
Tag No: 4993
Registered Name: Pat C Signal
Breed: Greyhound
Date of Birth: November 1, 2003
Color: Dark Brindle
Cat Friendly: Yes
Dog Friendly: Ok with large, unknown with small
Kid Friendly: No
Location: Foster home
Larger photos:  Yes, click the links in Signe's comment area
Comments: Signe and Soren were in the same home together and we would like to keep them together if at all possible, in a home with a yard. Signe is
sweet, friendly and loves people. She is affectionate and a sweetheart.
She loves going outside and people. Signe and Soren lived with 4 cats. She
has no real experience with children and at her age it is doubtful that she
would have the tolerance for children. Won't you give these two darling
girls their forever home?
