    APPLICATION UPDATE

    We have some greyt dogs AVAILABLE for ADOPTION so get your application in soon!

    If you are considering adopting a greyhound or lurcher, please review the information provided below before submitting an application and review the information on the site regarding our adoption process. Note that as of September 1, 2018, NSGA will no longer place greyhounds and lurchers in homes with children under 3 years of age. 

    Please review our Available for Adoption page. We are accepting applications for those dogs on the page that do not currently have a Pending Adoption. If you could indicate on your application if there is a specific dog that you are interested in, it would be very helpful. This page changes often so check back on a regular basis.

    We respect the time commitment made by other adoption groups and ask that if you are also working with another group, that you not submit an application to NSGA until such time as you have withdrawn it from the other group.
