Let a greyhound race into your heart. Shea did with her Grey, George!
WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF FOSTER AND ADOPTIVE HOMES AS WE SEEK TO HELP WITH THE REHOMING OF THE FLORIDA GREYHOUNDS! If you can't foster or adopt, please consider a donation, either monetary or something from our "wish list". Thank you!
We are very pleased to announce the formation of the BGA/DJJ GREYHOUND FOSTER PROGRAM. We (Bluegrass Greyhound Adoption or BGA) have entered into a special partnership with the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) to promote responsibility and opportunities for career development for at-risk youth within the Morehead Youth Development Center (MYDC) and Louisville Day.
What this means is that we will provide 2 dogs for each facility, beginning in January. Primary and secondary teenage handlers at each facility are assigned to the dogs and will work with them during a 12-week curriculum. They will help the dogs transition from their careers as professional racers to living in a family home and will also work on some basic commands. Upon the dogs’ graduations from the programs, they will immediately be available for adoption.
If you are interested, you can “pre-adopt” a particular dog. To meet the dog you may be interested in, you just need to contact Bluegrass Greyhound Adoption and someone will instruct you as to how to go about meeting the dog while he/she is in the program. You would also need to submit an application and have your home visit completed.
We cannot thank the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice enough for allowing us to have this opportunity and in particular, to Mrs. Sylvia Kuster, Program Services-Education Branch Manager, for her assistance in making this partnership possible.
Your support and contributions will enable us to place retired racing greyhounds into loving, appropriate homes "from track to couch."
BGA is a 501(c)(3) organization.
Your donation is 100% tax deductible.
