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.
The people who came in this day have had a few greyhounds before and wanted to meet some of our younger, more active dogs. We were happy to introduce a bunch of them, since our more energetic dogs sometimes get overlooked in favor of the calmer ones. All of the dogs that came out did a great job of introducing themselves and showing off their personalities. But one Irish boy had that right mix of playful and affectionate that really sealed the deal. So Blake is off to his new home in Tacoma! – Mike Forrest
These folks have been a greyhound family for many years and adopted several dogs from GPI. They lost their last two greyhounds in recent months and the house was empty without a greyhound, so the search was on for another greyhound to fill their hearts and home. And with that, Alison (who came from Australia) made her way to her new home in Alaska! – Moira Corrigan
Our first adopters of 2023 are new to the area and recently lost their greyhound Bella. They started volunteering with us doing turnout, which is a wonderful way to get to know the dogs in our care. They decided who they wanted to adopt but couldn’t until after the holidays. So after what I’m sure was an excruciating wait, today they were ready to bring home our senior lurcher Tuck who I know will be spoiled rotten in his new home! – Mike Forrest
