How it works

Are you ready to adopt a Greyhound?

All Greyhounds saved through Friends of the Hound are:

  • desexed
  • vaccinated
  • microchipped
  • intestinal and heartworm treated, and flea treated
  • supplied with collar, lead, toy, tag, muzzle and a warm dog coat

The adoption fee for each greyhound is $375.

This adoption fee also includes:

  • 1 year Adult Annual membership to Friends of the Hound
  • 1 year Fur Friend membership to Friends of the Hound
  • Ongoing after-adoption advice and support

Our Greyhounds are based on the Far North Coast, Central Coast, Hunter/Newcastle region, and Mid North Coast of NSW, ACT, and Gold Coast, Greater Brisbane, and Sunshine Coast regions of QLD. This is due to the assistance of wonderful carers, members, volunteers and supporters in these areas.
