Join us here as our Adoption Representatives share stories from the Adoption Center. Check out our Available Dogs to see who’s still waiting for their forever home.
This adopter is a long-time GPI volunteer who moved to Oregon several years ago. She made the trip up with her greyhound Cobi who had recently lost his canine companion. We introduced Cobi to several different boys & girls and he got along with all of them. That means that it was up to mom to make the difficult decision of who to bring home. Since she’s a retired flight attendant, it makes sense that she picked our Irish boy Jet! – Mike Forrest
This adopter today didn’t come quite as far, making the trip up from Vancouver, Washington. He grew up with a dog, but this is his first greyhound and his first dog that is all his own. He got to meet several of our recent arrivals from Ireland. One in particular made a great first impression by introducing herself with some vigorous tail wagging, and she sealed the deal with a game of fetch (well, the greyhound version of “fetch” anyway) outside in the yard. So our world traveler Daisy is off to her new home! – Mike Forrest
These adopters are long-time greyhound owners looking for a new companion for their boy Dax (fka Savage) who they adopted about a year and a half ago. They felt that he’d do best with a girl, so we introduced them to several greyhounds and mixes of all ages and sizes. The dogs did a great job of showing off their wide range of personalities, and Dax got along great with all of them. But it was one of our younger girls that really connected with him and her new mom & dad, showing off her playful happy self chasing a ball out in the rain with Dax. So our California girl Ambrosia was soon headed home with her new family! – Mike Forrest
Sometimes it takes a while for our more active, energetic young dogs to find the right home. We are so fortunate to have dedicated staff and volunteers that spend time with these dogs providing the enrichment and training that they need while they wait for their people to arrive. Well today a family with two teenagers came in looking for a dog that could keep up with their active lifestyle. They got to meet and spend some quality play time with several of our residents. But one happy lurcher girl stole their hearts, and while we will all miss Frannie at the kennel I know we’re all delighted to see her find her home! – Mike Forrest
