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.

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 13+ 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 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! 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.

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.

Born Nov 1, 2003
Died Jan 22, 2018

Thank you to her foster mom for giving her a loving home. Run free Signe.  Join your sister Soren running free.
