Wally & Warren
Meet Warren and Wally
These brindle boys are litter mates, just about 1 1/2 years
old and handsome as can be. Warren is cat-safe, Warren is
cat-workable and both are looking for retirement homes......
er...well, they both flunked schooling, found racing to not
be of interest. Both are lovely tempered boys, open to
learning and loving. If you are looking to add to your pack,
either Wally or Warren might be the hound for you!

Yes, Wally and Warrens momma made the
trip from Oklahoma with her boys. She is a beautiful brindle
female, born 07/10/2005 and this mamma has 18 races and
three pups registered. She is not cat safe but loves other
greyhounds, love people and has yet to be tested with small
dogs. If you are looking for a mature, loving, independent
hound, Momma might be for you.

ADOPTED! Harbor Master or Harry, for short.... Harry is a 3 1/2 year old love, a bit timid and unsure but that is because he just retired. This boy raced a total of 51 races in New Orleans and West Virginia and then set his sights on retirement in Las Vegas. He is learning how to take it easy and is catching on quickly. Seems to be small dog safe but will be test in the next week or so on tiny dogs and cats. Harry's brindling is very beautiful. Could Harry be your special hound?|

Thank you for expressing interest in Greyhound Pet Adoption Las Vegas. We are a fully volunteer-operated chapter of a national non-profit
organization dedicated to finding homes for retired racing greyhounds.
Most of us work full-time in addition to our work with the greyhounds, so
please forgive us if we are not always available at the moment you call.
Please leave us a message or email us and we will get back to you as soon as
On this website you can access a question and
answer section entitled, " About Greyhounds," addressing some of the most common
questions about greyhounds. When you complete the adoption application be sure
to carefully read the "Adoption Requirements" section which also provides
insight into our adoption process. After an application is returned to us,
you can expect a phone call from a volunteer adoption placement representative
to discuss your application and give you additional information about ex-racing
Greyhound Pet Adoption Las Vegas incurs considerable expense with
every Greyhound that passes through its adoption program. The adoption fee is
$325.00. This adoption fee assists and allows us to make the following
provisions for these wonderful pets: It helps to cover a full physical
examination from the veterinarian, all vaccinations, the spaying or neutering,
teeth cleaning, tick testing, worming, heartworm test, new safety collar and
lead, I.D. tag, placement package, transportation from the track and dog food
for the foster program.
Additional expenses such as photocopies, phone
bills, extra veterinarian costs, etc. are covered through these adoption fees
and through our constant fundraising efforts.
Greyhound Pet Adoption Las Vegas strives to adopt out healthy
greyhounds, and as with any animal purchase or adoption, continued or on-going
medical assistance cannot be offered. Please note that it is our policy
that we do not adopt to families with children under the age of six.
Next, we will conduct a home visit during which
we will bring one or more of our own greyhounds or a foster greyhound along to
give you an opportunity to see and spend time with a greyhound in person! This
is when you can learn how retired racers are different from other home-raised
dogs you've known. During the home visit we will be looking for potential
problems concerning the dog's safety and comfort, sometimes suggesting ways to
resolve them, as well as getting to know more about you , your family, your pets
and your lifestyle. This important process allows us to match personality &
behavior traits to what an applicant wants in a dog. Our success rate at
making the right match between greyhound and adopter, the first time around, is
Some people may feel that this is a lot to go
through, but we believe that getting a dog is a major commitment and adjustment.
We care about each and every greyhound, and only want them to go into homes
where both they and their new owners will be happy.
There are excellent books with additional
information to help you decide if a greyhound is the right choice for you. We
