Can't adopt a (another) Greyhound right now? That special bond can still be yours by joining the GPI Sponsorship roll. Confess your captivation by one of GPI's available hounds by sponsoring that dog while it's looking for a "Forever Home". Groups, organizations, clubs, churches, troops, tribes, businesses and small countries are welcomed to share in the delights of Sponsorship of a special hound.

A Sponsorship Donation of $20, $50 or whatever you are able to provide will identify your special relationship with your selected sleek retired racer. You may then focus all your best wish energy toward shaping a magnetic attraction between your sponsored hound and the perfect "Forever Family". Your sponsorship will be celebrated worldwide on the "Available Dogs" pages of GPI's website. Experience that shared joy when your sponsored Hound chooses a family to adopt. The chronicle of your sponsorship will be told to the adopting family.

The typical cost of preparing an ex-racer for adoption far exceeds the $200 adoption donation. Your generous sponsorship can help fill that gap. Foster care and special needs can add to the support costs of some Greyhounds during an extended search for the perfect family.
