Greyhounds Unlimited Adoption Application

Gimme a home!

Welcome to the Greyhounds Unlimited (GU) online adoption application. This page is a Web-based equivalent of our printed adoption application. To use it, please scroll down the page, read each question or prompt carefully, then give your full, honest answer. When you have answered all the questions, press the Submit button at the bottom of the page. If you want to clear the application and start over, press the Reset button.

This Web page will verify that you have answered all the required questions before sending the information to GU. If there are omissions or inconsistencies, a separate window will open, telling you of corrections you must make to the online adoption application. After you have corrected any omissions, press Submit again.

  [Important Technical Note: The online adoption application uses Javascript technology and a popup window as part of verifying your answers. You must enable Javascript and popups in your Web browser and associated plug-ins for the online adoption application to work correctly.]  

Your adoption application will be sent to GU for processing. You will be contacted by a GU adoption coordinator within 48 hours of receiving your application to continue the application process.

Thank you for your interest in Saving An Athlete!
