Read before signing and submiting.
Greyhounds are sight hounds and MUST be on a leash at all times unless in a securely fenced area. You CANNOT use an electric fence. You CANNOT use a flexi-leash as this is a very unsafe way to walk a greyhound. I understand that my greyhound will wear a Martingale collar when walking on leash. I understand that my greyhound will wear an identification tag both when inside the house and outside at ALL times. I understand that if, for any reason, I cannot keep my greyhound, I must return the greyhound to Greyhound Friends of NJ.
We offer life-long support and advice on any questions, behavioral issues or concerns you may have. Do not hesitate to call us at 732-356-4370.
A minimum adoption fee of $235 is required at the time of adoption to help cover such expenses as inoculations, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm test, worming, dental, leash and collar. All veterinary procedures are completed prior to adoption. A $25 non refundable application fee, payable to Greyhound Friends of NJ, must accompany your application. This fee may be deducted from your adoption fee when you get your dog.
Please indicate that you have read the above statement. Doing so and submitting the application authorizes the release of the information by your veterinarian to GFNJ: * Required
