All the Greyt News

Racing to Canada! 

Our first dogs of 2024 have arrived from Australia!  

The next group will be arriving in early March. .  If you are interested in adopting or fostering one of our new Canadians please contact us.  

We are saddened to announce that Rowdy – one of our Forever Care hounds – has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  Rowdy had the biggest heart – literally and figuratively and will be missed by all of us but especially by his permanent foster folks, Megan and Shannon. Our thanks to them both for giving this special needs boy the best retirement possible.   

There are only few copies left of the 2024 Shades of Grey wall calendar.  Contact us to get yours today. 

Our ambassadogs love to get out to meet potential adopters!  We are looking for ideas on locations to hold meet and greets throughout 2024.  If you have any ideas for locations that would be suitable, please get in touch.

Getting started

Our Adoption Process

NSGA has an established process that is followed for each adoption. We want to ensure that we have taken the time to get to know our adopters so we are better able to match them with greyhounds that are a good fit for their families.

Please note that as of September 1, 2018 NSGA has adopted a policy of only placing dogs in homes where there are no children under the age of three.

Prior to making the decision to adopt a greyhound, we suggest that potential adopters attend a meet and greet or join in a fun run or a walk. This provides the opportunity to spend time with retired racers and their owners, and to find out more about the breed and about our association.

Once the decision is made to move forward with adopting, the next step is to complete and submit an APPLICATION. There is no administration fee charged to apply, and the application is not a contract nor in any way does it obligate you to adopt a dog.

Within a few days of submitting the application, an NSGA adoption representative will contact you to arrange a PHONE INTERVIEW. During this interview, we will try to get a more detailed picture of your family and lifestyle.

A racing greyhound usually retires between 2 to 5 years of age and the majority of the greyhounds we have available will be within this age range. While awaiting adoption, our greyhounds are in experienced foster homes. Fostering provides us with greater insight into the personality of each greyhound and how they interact with children, other dogs and cats.

Once your home visit is completed, your adoption representative will arrange for you to meet greyhounds that are good matches for your lifestyle.

Our non-refundable adoption fee as of January 1, 2023 is $650.00. As this fee does not cover the actual costs incurred, NSGA fund-raises throughout the year.

Prior to adoption all NSGA greyhounds are examined by a local veterinarian. All dogs are spayed/neutered, have their teeth and ears cleaned as deemed necessary by the veterinarian, and have their nails trimmed. Their vaccinations (both rabies and 4-way vaccines) are brought up-to-date as necessary, and they are de-wormed and treated for other parasites such as fleas and ticks.

The greyhounds go home with a martingale collar and leash combo, a tag collar with an NSGA ID tag, and a plastic turnout muzzle.

See the cost comparison.

Our adoption representatives will provide you with on-going telephone support as you settle in your new family member. However, if for any reason you find you are unable to keep your greyhound, you do agree to return him/her to NSGA for rehoming.
