(Important guidelines you agree to follow if you adopt a greyhound)

- The greyhound must always be kept on leash at all times unless in a controlled situation such as your home or a securely fenced area.
- The adopter must have a completely fenced yard or dog run. An invisible fence is not an alternative.
- An identification tag bearing Chinook Wind Greyhound Rescue’s 1-800 telephone number must be kept on the greyhound at all times.
- The greyhound is an indoor house pet and family member and is not to be kept outside or shut away from the family inside the house.
- While greyhounds make wonderful family companions, it is Chinook Winds' policy not to adopt to families with children who are under 3 years of age.
- Your greyhound must not be tied out to a post, stake or anything else at any time.
- You must give the greyhound time and patience during the adjustment period while he or she makes the transition from kennel to home environment. This takes 3-6 months, on average.
- You must agree to use positive training methods with your greyhound. Greyhounds are sensitive animals and do not need physical punishment, such as hitting, as discipline.
- Your greyhound must be kept up-to-date on all necessary shots and medical needs.
- Your greyhound is a pet and companion, never to be used for racing, breeding, hunting, or laboratory research.
- If your greyhound is lost or goes missing, you must notify Chinook Winds Greyhound Rescue immediately.
- If you can no longer keep your greyhound for whatever reason, you must return him or her to Chinook Winds Greyhound Rescue for rehoming.
- You will allow a Chinook Winds Greyhound Rescue representative to make reasonable visits or phone calls to check on the greyhound.
- If at any time the greyhound is not being properly cared for as noted by the above statements, the greyhound will be repossessed by Chinook Winds Greyhound Rescue.
