EXPERIENCE  THE  GREYHOUND...  

WITHOUT THE  EXPENSE!!

HOW? BY FOSTERING...providing temporary shelter to a greyhound who has retired from racing, left the track and is awaiting a forever home as a pet and companion.

 YOUR COST?  NOTHING!!

  • GVV pays for all medical expenses, food, bedding, leash and special collar, even toys and treats until adoption. We'll even train you if needed.
  • YOU provide shelter, care, a little basic training and lots of love for at least two weeks or until a forever home is found.


FOSTERING is the very backbone of GVV's mission. No Foster homes available means no where to house Greyhounds awaiting forever homes; no where for adopted hounds returned to GVV's care due to deaths, health issues or changes in circumstances in their human families and other issues.

AN EXTRA BENEFIT OF FOSTERING? When a potential adopter is found, the foster family is always given first "dibs" to adopt their hound should they so desire. Happens quite a bit.


Actually, we are appealing for two things:

  • A FOSTER HOME COORDINATOR to help GVV find folks willing to make their homes available.
  • And FOSTER HOMES AND FAMILIES
