NOTICE 10/17/2021- PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

WE ARE ONCE AGAIN UPDATING OUR POLICY. WE ARE ONLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FROM PEOPLE IN CT WITH CURRENT OR PREVIOUS GREYHOUND OR LARGE DOG EXPERIENCE.  IF YOU LIVE IN RI, YOU MUST HAVE ADOPTED FROM FROM CGA IN THE PAST

Adopting a retired racing Greyhound through Connecticut Greyhound Adoption is a simple process. Potential adopters must fill out a CGA Adoption Application which may be completed online or the applicant may download the form (click here to download), complete and mail the application form to us. Please note that downloading the form and mailing it in will result in a delay in the adoption process. To ensure your application is attended to in a timely manner, we suggest using the online application.

Adoption applicants will be contacted by a CGA representative and a meeting will be scheduled during which any of the applicant's questions may be answered. The adopter's preferences in a Greyhound will be discussed along with a review of available hounds so that a compatible match between hound and home can be made.

Connecticut Greyhound Adoption - GPA

Before filling out your application please keep in mind that this is a 10-12 year commitment on your part. Everyone in the household needs to be in agreement that adding a greyhound is the right decision. If you or someone in your family is still on the fence, stop by one of our events and see some greys up close. Ask us questions at the event, our volunteers love to talk about their greys. We ask that once you fill out an application you initially work with us and have thought this through. This prevents different groups from doubling their efforts and volunteers from becoming discouraged. We look forward to working with you.

Effective January 1, 2021 CGA's Adoption Fee will be $500.
