Adoption Requirements

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

  1. 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.
  2. The adopter must have a completely fenced yard or dog run. An invisible fence is not an alternative.
  3. An identification tag bearing Chinook Wind Greyhound Rescue’s 1-800 telephone number must be kept on the greyhound at all times.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Your greyhound must not be tied out to a post, stake or anything else at any time.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Your greyhound must be kept up-to-date on all necessary shots and medical needs.
  10. Your greyhound is a pet and companion, never to be used for racing, breeding, hunting, or laboratory research.
  11. If your greyhound is lost or goes missing, you must notify Chinook Winds Greyhound Rescue immediately.
  12. If you can no longer keep your greyhound for whatever reason, you must return him or her to Chinook Winds Greyhound Rescue for rehoming.
  13. You will allow a Chinook Winds Greyhound Rescue representative to make reasonable visits or phone calls to check on the greyhound.
  14. 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.
