We adopted All Powerful from NGAP as part of the international #ClosetheCanidrome campaign and remain so grateful to GREY2K USA Worldwide and the international network that brought him home to us. When it comes to celebrating Power’s birthdays, we make it special by baking homemade treats and spending the happy day together as a family. He loves car rides, hiking adventures and lots of birthday cake. Victoria Celia and Orlando Salvato, Pennslyvania, United States
“Did you know that greyhounds have allergies? Well, my heart dog Rhett does and he gets regular shots at the doctor’s office. He is very patient and loves to snooze on his blanket each day.”
“Surrendered at the age of three, Cookie was our first hound but definitely not our last. This gentle, loving, supremely intelligent and hilarious hound graced our lives for ten years, passing away one day before her thirteenth birthday. We miss her every day.”
“Our sweetheart Ravioli is now ten years old! Ravi's eternal puppy dog eyes and gentle nature never fail to endear him to everyone he meets."
“Swanson, our white angel, is almost thirteen years old and still loves the outdoors, walkies and lounging in soft grass on a sunny day, soaking in all the sights and sounds of nature. Here he is with Barney, now lost to cancer but forever in our hearts.”
“I will forever have a special place in my heart for dear Lyla, who provided much comfort during the COVID-19 lockdown. She came to me at the age of eight, so I knew our time together would be short. In her last moments, she placed her head in my hands as she slowly faded away. She was such love bug.”
“When we saw Eric at the Retired Greyhound Trust, he was this very skinny dog, fur covered in pee and very, very nervous. Part of his ear was missing! He had obviously been mistreated and would growl at my husband and son. But a few months later, he was a different dog. He is our fifth greyhound and we love him to bits!”
“Rescued from the Canidrome in Macau, Joy is our very first greyhound. She makes us smile every day and proves that anything is possible! We were so thankful for the opportunity to adopt her and welcomed her into our family with 100% love.”
“We adopted our Toasty from the National Greyhound Adoption Program in Philadelphia. She came home to us with serious medical issues, but that didn’t prevent her from being the friendliest, most fun-loving hound we have ever known.”
“I adopted Tora through Connecticut Greyhound Adoption and it was the best decision I ever made. Not only did I rescue her, but she rescued me!”
“Aja was rescued from the Palm Beach Kennel Club and brought a smile back to our hearts after losing our beloved Luna. She is a joy to behold for anyone who is lucky enough to meet her and share her joy for life, squeaky toys and of course long siestas in the sunshine.”
