Notes:Recycled Racers, Inc. has been a small 501(c)3 nonprofit organization since 1993. We are dedicated to the placement of retired racing Greyhounds into responsible, loving homes. Since our inception in 1993, we have placed over 1,500 Greyhounds! Every adoption is important to us. We try to make every effort to match the personality of the Greyhound with the potential owner. We enjoy keeping in touch with our Greyhound adopters and their hounds through their participation in our adopters events held through out the year. Racing Greyhounds are usually not very old, when they become available for adoption. They are typically 4 to 6 years of age when they retire and have an average life span of 12 to 14 years. Occasionally, we get younger dogs who were not interested in chasing the lure or an older dog who is retired from breeding. Racing Greyhounds are purebred dogs which are registered through the NGA (National Greyhound Association). Greyhounds in our new 100% foster home program have their health checked, are spayed or neutered, have their rabies, distemper vaccinations updated and receive a dental cleaning, nail trim and bath prior to being placed into a qualified foster home until they can be adopted. Each foster home is provided with an extra large dog crate, free dog food for the duration of the Greyhound's foster period, dog feeding bowls, leash, Greyhound safety collar, ID tags, kennel muzzle, Greyhound information book, our Greyhound Care Manual, and plastic kennel muzzle. Our adoption fee is $175.00 which is applied to the above costs. Each adopter gets a wonderful Greyhound with a professional quality 6-foot leash, matching tag collar, matching Martingale Greyhound safety collar, ID tags, kennel muzzle and our Greyhound Care Manual. We get to know each and every dog's personality very well. This constant contact helps us place each Greyhound into a situation that is right for the dog. Our hope is that each Greyhound adopted out will blossom into a true family member in their new home. The well being of each Greyhound in their new adoptive home is very important to us, and we take this responsibility seriously. Soon you will find out what thousands of Greyhound adopters already know, that Greyhounds make fast friends!
