Fostering Process


A Foster Home is the first important step in rehabilitating greyhounds because many will never have known affection or a home environment before in their lives.

A Foster Home is our first chance to see the real nature of a dog, this helps us make the best choice of home for them, and any problems they might have can be addressed.
