Adoption Application

Pet ownership is a serious responsibility. It is our policy to assure that each person who adopts a greyhound not only be aware of the responsibility, but that each person will be capable of and willing to accept that responsibility morally, physically, and financially. The following questionnaire has been designed to aid both you and Harbor Hounds in deciding if you and/or your family are prepared for greyhound adoption and to help in choosing the right dog for you.
