|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.
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

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 13+ years old.
Check was a brood
mom and would do best in a home without children.
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 Month. Kennel
Update: Check 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 update:
Check, 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 13
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!
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.

Pat C Signal
On Monday we had to send one of our Forever Fosters to the
bridge. Signe (Pat C Signal) was dearly loved by her foster mom, but
her time had come. She lived to the grand old age of 14, but life just
wasn't comfortable for her any more.
