Greyhound Foster Care

Love the company of dogs, but not ready to make a long term commitment? Why not foster a dog like the placid and family friendly greyhound and enjoy all the benefits of pet ownership.

There are no qualifications required – all you need is a suitable home, an open heart and a readiness to accept a huge amount of affection from a greyhound.

The aim of foster care is to prepare greyhounds for pet life. In your home they will learn house manners, socialisation with other pets and children and basic obedience.

Greyhound fostering is easy

  1. Talk to us about your lifestyle and needs (eg. If you’d only like to foster during school holiday periods or throughout Christmas only).
  2. We contact you to find a suitable foster period (usually 3-6 weeks at a time)
  3. Your foster greyhound will come with a lead, collar, dry food, flea/worming treatment and more.
  4. Greyhounds As Pets will guide you through the entire experience and provide you with any information you need.

Greyhound Foster Care with a view to adopt

Alternatively you can foster a greyhound with a view to adopt (similar to a ‘try before you buy’ program). This provides the perfect opportunity for you to take a greyhound into your home on an extended trial basis, to give you a full understanding of how your greyhound will fit into your life. We want you to be fully comfortable with your pooch before making the decision to adopt.
