Available Retirees


 

G.R.A.C.E. believes that prospective adopters should have a chance to learn about the greyhounds available. See what they look like, ask questions about particular dogs, and ultimately choose a greyhound who will best suit their circumstances and enrich their lives.

  • We help adopters choose dogs by providing detailed information about each dog and offering suggestions about which dogs would work best in the adopter’s environment.

  • We do not place a dog in a home without the adopters full involvement in the decision-making process.

  • All families with children ages 3 through 5 years must have a fenced in yard to adopt.  Due to the fact that we cannot conduct in home visits with young children to see the true interaction between the grey and the children we are updating our requirements raising the minimum age to 3.  

  • Please click on the application tab to complete the application.

  •   Please feel free to follow up with us regarding your application at 734-558-4218 if you have not heard from us within 4 days of submitting your application. Thank you so much for your interest in adopting or fostering a greyhound, and we look forward to hearing from you!

UPDATE:  Because of the current conditions in our state and across the country we are not doing on site home visits. We will contact you about creating a video and where to send for us to review.  Thank you for your assistance.

Due to COVID 19 restrictions GRACE will not be able to do adoptions in Canada until those restrictions are lifted.  

Thank you

Below are our current Available Retirees. Feel free to pick one, or several, to become your new family pet! Remember, greyhounds are like potato chips…you can’t have just one.

This month’s featured retire is…

UCME ON MY VIBE AKA GLENN

Hi I am Glenn and I am super sweet.  I have no problem with linoleum floors, but I am still learning stairs.  I have learned that I am not supposed to chew things that are not mine.  I crate well and I do take correction easily.  I am good on a lead too.  I love ear and tummy rubs and playing with toys.  If you are looking for a special boy…look no further because I am the one for you!!!!

Hi Everyone my name is Glenn and I just came to GRACE from Kansas. I had a short racing career (3 races) at Wheeling and than went back to the farm.

My foster dad says I have a sweet disposition and am doing great with the other dogs in my foster home. I do okay with bigger dogs, but not so much with the small yippee ones or those things called cats.

I love ear and tummy rubs and playing with toys. I crate well and have mastered the floors in my foster home. I still need work on stairs..but I will try to work on that.

I am looking for that forever home could that be with you?

Hi my name is Charmeleon and I made the trip from Kansas to Michigan. I traveled with my littermate Charizard who is also looking for his forever home.

Foster update! Charm (Charmeleon) really knows how to work those puppy dog eyes! He’s adjusting well and is learning the ropes for retirement. He loves my girls and is coming out of his shell more every day! Things I know about him so far:
-he loves snow! Like REALLY loves snow and would probably stay out all day if I let him 😂
-super handsome, loves to come up for snugs
-he’s a collector and has a special affinity for clothes and shoes but doesn’t chew them (thank goodness!)
-loves toys, doesn’t really play but loves to hoard them
-he’s getting used to the stairs, has gone up and down successfully a couple times but needs lot encouragement because they’re scary
-isn’t afraid of the wood floors, but definitely has had some Bambi on ice moments between the rugs
-no space or food aggression
-not cat safe and would probably love to snack on some of the neighborhood cats that wander in front of my house
