While we are thrilled to have our new kennel up and running, we still endeavor to place senior and/or greyhounds needing a little more personal time and care into foster homes.  Our foster homes consist of experienced volunteers and greyhound owners who provide shelter to greyhounds in their own homes giving them love, tender loving care, transport to vet appointments, grooming and anything else they might need while they are in our system.

Most dogs that are “Forever Fosters?” are dogs that are seniors who have been in our system for a while, sometimes years, or dogs that have special needs above and beyond what many adopters can handle.  Most “Forever Fosters?” are available for adoption, but generally they are only suitable for experienced adopters or those with a very specific home environment.

Our “Forever Fosters?” are listed below.  They are surrounded by people who love them and have plenty of canine companionship at all times. 

If you can't adopt a dog and you'd like to help, please sponsor one of our “Forever Fosters?”. Your sponsorship donation will help defray the costs involved in making our long term fosters comfortable while they wait for their forever homes.

If you're interested in adopting one of these dogs, please contact the Vice President closest to you listed below or click the "Contact for more information" button included with each dog.

Check

Check
Check
Tag No: 5593
Registered Name: Greys Checkntime
Date of Birth: October 4, 2003
Color: Brindle
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, not recommended with small dogs
Kid Friendly: No
Location: Foster home
Larger photos:  Yes, click the links in Check's comment area
Comments: Check is sweet, happy, friendly and loves being around people. She is still very active for her age and you would never guess that she is 10 years old. Check was a brood mom and would do best in a home without children. She occasionally likes to play with toys. She has done well with other greyhounds, but can be dominant. Although she has done well meeting small dogs, we do not recommend that she live with them full time. Check is just darling and will melt your heart.  Check was our April Dog of the MonthKennel UpdateCheck loves walks and often goes with our volunteers on walks on some local trails.  She is affectionate and happy – just a wonderful lady!  Foster home updateCheck, or “Checkers” as I like to call her is doing GREYT! She is absolutely a love. She loves people and I have to say, is the easiest dog I have ever had. Check always lets me know when she needs to go outside. She loves to go for walks. She has finally learned to lay down in the car when I am driving. I would never guess that she is 11 years old. She has lots of spunk and loves to play with her animals, she gathers them all onto her bed and then tosses them around! Checkers loves to follow me around and if I had to rename her, it would be Shadow. She is not too good with dogs that are not Greyhounds. She has learned to tolerate my brother’s Puggle, but I would never leave them alone together. She adores my parents Greyhound Bella Rose, but she also likes to eat Bella’s food and bump Bella out of the way…..so she is a bit bossy and Bella is just a good match because she does not mind. When I go to work, I drop Checkers off at my parents, so she gets to spend the day with my folks and Bella.

Perky Jada
Tag No: 5495
Registered Name: Sunsands Perky
Date of Birth: May 29, 2002
Color: Black
Dog friendly: OK with Greyhounds, unknown with others
Cat friendly: Unknown
Kid friendly: Unknown
Location: Foster home
Comments: Jada is a sweet loving girl with big stand up ears. She likes to be close to her person.  She and Yoda were turned into us as their family couldn't care for them. They were very bonded and would not do well without each other so they were placed in the same Forever Foster home. Unfortunately, Yoda passed away recently.  Jada will remain in her Forever Foster home where she is much loved.

Lady
Tag No: 5458
Registered Name: Lady D
Date of Birth: January 17, 2003
Color: Brindle
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, unknown with others
Kid Friendly: Unknown
Location: Foster home
Larger photo:  Yes, click the link in Lady's comment area plus check out her videos below!
Comments: Lady has become a kennel favorite.  She is a brood mom and is now, well deservedly, retired and enjoying life. Lady is very playful and loves the stuffed toys. She is friendly, easy-going, playful and delightful. Lady will truly melt your heart - just a wonderful, wonderful lady! Lady will need a home without kitties. Lady and Zora are turned out together and do very well together It turns out that Lady and Zora are sisters! No wonder they look so much alike! Foster home update: I have the distinct pleasure of fostering these two (long-lost and recently reunited) sisters. Zora had been in a home before but for Lady it is a new adventure. They had a ball running amok in my yard and they are really a team. The doggy door was conquered without any help from me ;-)) They blend into my pack seamlessly and have adapted to home life beautifully. They ride well in the car (I think Lady would like to try driving) and are great on a walk. They are a pair and need to stay together. What sweet girls!  (In the second photo, Lady is on the right.) There are many more photos of "The Sister Act" on their past Dogs of the Month feature!!

Mac

Mac
Tag No: 4939
Registered Name: Electric Explore
Breed: Greyhound
Date of Birth: January 22, 2005
Color: Black
Cat Friendly: Yes
Dog Friendly: Ok with large and small
Kid Friendly: Yes
Location: Foster Home
Larger photos:  Yes, click the links in Mac's comment area
Comments: Mac is an absolute sweetheart. He is sweet, gentle, and very affectionate and loving. He is a happy soul and loves to hang with you. Mac has lived in a home, but was returned because he was not happy. He has lived with a cat and young children. Mac has always lived in a home with a yard, so we would really like him to go into a home with a yard. He is doing well in his foster home. Mac is a delightful, easygoing boy. He loves belly rubs, playbowing and being with you.  Foster home update: Mac is such a sweet guy. He just wants love, low maintenance love - he'll just put his head in your lap while you lounge in your favorite chair. He is also very smart. He has excellent counter surfing skills, especially if he knows you're not paying attention. Mac does have a talent for yard excavation, but if you provide him a place to dig, he'll leave the yard alone.

She loves going outside and people. Signe and Soren lived with 4 cats. She
has no real experience with children and at her age it is doubtful that she
would have the tolerance for children. Won't you give these two darling
girls their forever home?

Sunny

Sunny

Sunny
Sunny
Tag No: 5246
Registered Name: Bella Fine Art
Date of Birth: Dec 14, 2001
Color: White/Fawn
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with greyhounds, not with others, see comments
Kid Friendly: No
Location: Foster Home
Larger photo:  Yes, click the links in Sunny's comment area
Comments: Sunny was in a home and returned through no fault of hers. Sunny is beautiful. Sunny is very sweet, loveable and loves attention and to cuddle. She is good with toys and loves walks and car rides. Sunny does not like to share, so would do best in a home where she is the only apple of your eye or one other greyhound. Sunny does ok with other greyhounds, but not other dogs. She will need a home where someone is home a fair amount of time, although she has been left for 6 to 7 hours at a time. She will also need a home without cats or children. Won't you give this beautiful older lady her forever couch? Foster home update: Sunny came to live with us a few months ago, but it seems she has been a part of our pack forever. She turned 13 not long ago, but still likes to do a little "dance" from time to time and let us know life still holds pleasure for her. She does struggle with stairs. My husband built her a ramp to the backyard and she uses it faithfully. He will do the same for the other steps. She is probably the most affectionate of the 4 greyhounds whom we have had in our home. She is the first one to greet me at the door when I come home, sometimes the only one, and if I'm gone for long my husband says she is watching out the window for me to return home. She puts her head in my lap and is simply giving and receiving love. She enjoys her treats, likes to sleep these cold nights with her coat and a blanket over her. She loves walks, though they are a bit shorter now and I try to avoid any of the steeper hills in the neighborhood. She is so funny; she barks when one of her two "sisters" comes close to her bed, but th ey have learned that she is all bark and no bite and lie down with her anyway with no problems. She lets passing dogs know through the windows that they are trespassing on her sidewalk. All in all we are delighted that she is with us and hope she sets a record for longevity.

Tika

Tika
Tag No: 5288
Registered Name: Savvy Jody
Date of Birth: March 5, 2008
Color: Brindle
Cat Friendly: No
Dog Friendly: Ok with large and small
Kid Friendly: Unknown
Location: Foster home
Larger photo:  Yes, click the links in Tika's comment area
Comments: Tika is the most darling little girl. She is affectionate, happy and will just melt your heart. Tika was returned to us in not very good health. Tika has a myriad of health issues, but is such a happy soul. Everyone who meets her just loves her. And she has been so good through all her vet visits and treatments. Since her return she has been diagnosed with Babesia and Valley Fever. Kennel Update: We are treating Tika's Babesia and her Valley Fever. We are also working with a Health Touch healer, an acupuncturist and chiropractor to help her. We are blessed to have so many of these individuals donate their services or part of their services and so many volunteers being willing to work with her as well. We are slowly getting some weight on her. Her medical expenses are still quite large, as you can imagine. Won’t you help us help Tika by sponsoring her. Forever Foster home update:  Tika is doing so much better.  She is at 64 lbs now, her coat is bunny soft, her eyes are bright and full of love and fun.  Tika had a family of stuffed babies that is a constant source of entertainment for me.  She positions them in specific places and groupings.  I just wish I could read her mind.  I've been told by a communicator they make her feel loved and with all the babies she has, she truly is loved.  One time the red/blue bear had been placed in the corner of the dining room for two days away from all the other babies.  I picked him up and said to her can't he come back home, he's sorry for what he did.  Tika took him from me and put him back in the corner.  He had to wait another day! She loves car rides, lying in the sun and visits to the kennel to see her people.  She is a very happy soul.  MEDICAL HOLD
