The Application

*Please note:  This form is for submitting an adoption application by email only. 

Greyhound Adoption/Foster Online Application

Greyhounds are affectionate, friendly and intelligent dogs who thrive on attention and human companionship. Raised with their littermates, where they competed for affection, greyhounds love becoming the center of attention as household pets. Greyhounds do not usually make good watchdogs. Their friendly nature is not really very threatening. Adoptions of FastFriends greyhounds are made with the understanding that the dog will be a house pet. Greyhounds, like people, have many personalities. The following questions help us match greyhounds with people and pets. You are welcome to expand on any area or provide additional information on separate pages. This application, if approved, will become part of the greyhound adoption agreement.

The adoption fee for a FastFriends Greyhound is $300, which includes a $60 tax-deductible adoption donation to help us cover our costs and continue adoptions, and a $240 fee toward the dog's neutering or spaying, dental, worming, heartworm test, blood testing, and vaccinations.
