Sighthound Adoption and Fostering Center, Inc. (SAFC) is a volunteer non-profit organization which accepts Sighthounds from owners, shelters, dog tracks, and other situations. Some of the dogs are pedigreed, some look and act purebred but have no verification, a few are known sighthound mixes. Most of the dogs are 1 to 5 years old, on average, but we do receive puppies and seniors on occasion. All SAFC listed dogs are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated and dental work performed. SAFC matches families with Sighthounds of compatible temperament and abilities. Fosters whenever possible try to evaluate all sighthounds with cats, other dogs, children, etc

If you want to help Sighthounds we invite you to join our group to learn more about what we do. Foster homes are screened before acceptance. Volunteers are needed for transporting dogs, shelter checks, running a website,distributing posters and pamphlets, writing articles, training and much more!
