Join us here as Regional Vice President Kathy Kreyling shares stories from the Adoption Center. Check out our Available Dogs to see who’s still waiting for their forever home.
This couple adopted their first Greyhound in 2011 and they were “mostly” ready for another one! One member of the family did turnout and found the perfect dog for them so he was really ready. His wife hadn’t done turnout so she needed a little convincing which was easily taken care of the minute the dog put his head in her lap so that she could pat him. However it came about, the couple and their current Greyhound, Rainy, were ready and happy to welcome Bob into his new home!!
This couple had to postpone their kennel visit a couple of times so they were very excited to finally come meet their potential family members. They were looking for a girl and we certainly had some fun little girls to show them. All of them put on quite an energetic show and luckily this couple was excited to take on a young bouncy dog. They certainly got one — little Emmie is a 2 year old Greyhound Mix/Lurcher from the Midwest and there is no doubt she will keep them on their toes!!
This lady already has had a couple of our dogs from Dubai and recently lost one of them. Her remaining dog, Zaki, was feeling a little lost without his buddy, so she decided it was time to find him a companion. After looking through our website and meeting a couple of dogs by herself, the owner thought that one of our Irish boys would be a good fit and she was right!! The dogs weren’t best friends immediately, but they were very tuned in to each other and seemed to understand what the other dog needed. We certainly couldn’t ask for much more than that so Jack headed home with his new mom & brother!!
This adoption involved another Greyhound, June (fka Shanna), and a two and a half year old toddler so we were ready for the process to take a while. We couldn’t have been more wrong. The family had already picked out their favorite dog from our website which just happened to be one of the two dogs we thought would be a good option. When we brought out the dog, it immediately seemed like he was a part of the family. And, after spending time out in the yard, it was completely obvious to everyone that the striking black boy from Ireland, Peanut (nka Macadamia – Mac for short), had found his new home!!
This family has had to wait quite a while for the time to be right for them to adopt. So, when everything fell into place, they really moved — they had their home visit yesterday and got their dog today. They were looking for a moderately active dog and we actually had a few dogs that fit that description. Of course, since the family consisted of a mother & son, you could almost bet that they would each be attracted to a different dog and they were! But, thankfully, after some time in the yard with the two contenders, they both agreed that our little black girl, Finley, was the one for them!!
