Who We Are

Star City Greyhounds is a non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving, quality, forever homes for retired racers. We run entirely off of donations and volunteers. Our mission is to educate the public about these wonderful dogs and find them loving, quality, forever homes. Our interest in the adoption doesn’t stop when we place a dog. We offer 24 hour greyhound support, and try to work with the adopter and dog to solve any problems that may arise. If at any time the dog is no longer wanted or we feel the home is not beneficial to either parties the dog always has a home here with us.

Adoption Process

Our adoption process includes : filling out an application, checking references, and a home visit . We want to make the adoption process as seamless as possible. We'll visit your home to ensure that everything is Greyhound friendly and to discuss any problems we may observe. We encourage potential adopters to check and read any available greyhound information. We recommend books and websites because you can’t have too much information. We believe that you and your dog should pick each other. We may suggest a few we feel would work well in your home, but we believe that to have that incredible greyhound bond there needs to be a mutual attraction. Sometimes what an adopter is looking for is not what they fall in love with, and sometimes the dog just picks you and there isn’t any more room for discussion. We deliver the dog to their new family with their greyhound collar, muzzle and lead. The adopter is furnished with a copy of all medical records and a copy of the dog’s racing record if possible. We love to keep in touch with “our” dogs and encourage all adopters to come to "meet and greets" and show off their dogs and help educate the public on the joys of being owned by a greyhound. Our adoption fee is $250.00. This fee covers: Spaying or neutering Updating vaccines Heartworm check Dental cleaning Deworming Bathing and flea treatment Greyhound collar and lead 24 hour tech support All dogs are vetted as soon as possible upon arrival at the kennel. They are not shown or available for adoption until this is done.
