Our individual adoption process begins when you submit an application to Personalized Greyhounds, Inc. We will discuss your needs and preferences with you:
Your color, age, and gender preference
Ages of children in the home
Any other pets in the home
How soon you would like to receive your dog
After your references have been confirmed, Personalized Greyhounds requires that a PG representative have a home visit with you to discuss safety issues and answer any additional questions you may have. Then we will begin our search for your dog through our contacts at Greyhound racetracks throughout the U.S. When we have found the ideal dog for you, we will bring it to the Harrisburg area, and prepare him or her for your home. Our preparation includes:
A thorough washing and grooming
Flea and tick check and removal
Eyes flushed, ears cleaned, nails cut
If necessary, testing for children over age six and animal tolerance
Most important, LOTS OF TLC!
When you arrive to take your greyhound home, we require that you bring an ID tag, permanently engraved complete with your name, address, phone numbers and your dog's name. We will provide a PG Inc. ID tag already attached to his collar. It is imperative that all of this information be kept on your grey at all times.
When you take possession of your greyhound, you will be assigned a mentor (your greyhound buddy). PG will make a contact with you within 24 hours after you get your greyhound and we require a post adoption home visit within 7 days after you adopt your grey.
