Finish Line in Sight -
Match Is $758.11 Away

The generosity and compassion of greyhound people is a beautiful thing. Donors like you have gifted us with $2,242.89 since our matching gift campaign kicked off June 24. That puts us two-thirds of the way to the $3,000 needed to match a $3,000 pledge from anonymous donors. The $6,000 total will pay for the basic vetting of 20 adoptable dogs. Most people don't realize the basic $300 vetting - including dental, spay/neuter, lab work and worming - rarely covers the full cost of prepping a retired racer for its new life as a pet. Donate today and help us receive the matching dollars and ensure our mission to rehome retired racers continues until the last dog has a home. Since March 26, GPANashville has placed or has had in foster 29 dogs from the Birmingham Race Course and 14 from Sanford Orlando Kennel Club which closed recently; many more are waiting.

Help Us Meet the Goal - The Hounds Are Counting on You The deadline for matching the $3,000 anonymous donation is Aug. 15.

Dogs adopted through GPA/Nashville have had the following services:
  • Spay/neuter
  • Dental cleaning*
  • Heartworm testing
  • CBC blood panel testing for anomalies such as tick-born illness
  • Deworming**
  • Nail trimming
  • Current rabies and DHPPL vaccinations
  • 3-9 weeks of fostering in the homes of experienced foster families***

Each dog comes with:
  • 6 months of heartworm preventative
  • Microchip for identification
  • Star ID tag with 1-800 number call service
  • Martingale collar and leash
  • Racing muzzle
  • At least a week's worth of dog food
  • Adoption packet containing valuable resources such as coupons and publications that will help you better understand your greyhound's unique needs while also assist you in helping your dog adjust to his new life as a pet
  • Support of the largest greyhound adoption community in Nashville

*Senior dogs that have been returned may not have dental cleaning done if the vet determines anesthesia is risky for the hound.

**GPA/Nashville treats all dogs for worms, however worms can be very tenacious. GPA/Nashville provides 6 months of Advantage Multi for additional treatment at the time of adoption with a value of $100. The adopter is responsible for any additional treatments needed.

***%98 of GPA/Nashville dogs have been learning home skills in foster care for 3 weeks or more. Our 15+ years of experience in greyhound adoption has demonstrated that the dogs are best served by moving to their permanent homes when they are ready. This ensures that they form strong emotional bonds with their adoptive families rather than with foster families. However, every dog is different. Those that need more time in foster care get it.
