Adopting a Friend

Greyhounds are extremely clean and have no hereditary health problems. They are kennel broken, thus virtually house broken. They are highly intelligent, intuitive and loyal. They learn routines quickly. Most are 2 - 4 years old when available to adopt and live to be 12 - 14. They are very social and like other pets, including cats. They don't need any more exercise than other breeds. A daily walk will do. They are very sensitive and give an unlimited amount of unconditional love. Most are 55 - 80 lbs. and eat between 3 - 5 cups of dog food per day.

Volunteering and Donations

Donations can be made to GPA-Spgfld. All proceeds go to support out adoption efforts.

If you would like to volunteer, please e-mail me.
