All the Greyt News

Bigger and better than ever, it’s the party you don’t want to miss.

Details coming soon . . . .

NSGA is currently accepting applications for Cash and Andrea only.  

All applications previously submitted continue to be on HOLD, with little chance that we will have any dogs to place in these homes.

t’s that time of year again! We are looking for some GREYT pictures to include in the Shades of Grey 2023 calendar.

This is our 10th Anniversary Edition and it will be bigger than ever! We need sharply focused images of your hound(s) in a variety of situations – sleeping, roaching, indoors, outdoors, playing, dressed up, or just being beautiful! . . For print quality, photos need to be 1 megabyte in size or larger (if sending from your phone, use the large size option for sending). Send your photos to us at northernskygreyhounds@gmail.com. We strive to include at least one photo from each family that submits! We do ask that you limit the number of photos you send to 5 photos per hound. Please include the dog’s name, age and the year you adopted with each photo you send. Photos must be received by July 22 to be considered for the 2023 calendar.

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 July 1, 2020 is $600.00. 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.
