We’ve welcomed these greyhounds from Australia and Ireland with more expected to arrive every month till April or May—depending on temperatures. Start the adoption process now to be ready to meet and greet your new best friend.
Looking for a calm, even-tempered, laid-back companion? You’ve come to the right place! Dogs range from 2-5 years of age when they leave the track, some younger who didn’t race; some older who were used for breeding. Your new friend will become the love of your life.
SA Greys charges an adoption fee of $1,000 for Irish and Australian greyhounds, $400 for domestic dogs under 8 yrs old and $300 for 8+ yrs old. The adoption fees help to help defray costs for transportation, boarding, general veterinary costs, and training, when necessary.
Here is a list of typical pre-adoption services for a hound in our care:
Initial Health Screen $130
Average Boarding $125
Routine Dental $75
Fecal sample testing $75
Heartworm Protection $20
Flea/tick protection $15
Ancillary Services $485 (anesthesia, medication dispensing, pain medication, IV/fluids, micro-chipping)
The average cost per dog exceeds $1100 when there are no exceptional medical needs. We wish that we didn’t have to worry about severe injuries or illnesses, but that is much more common than we’d like. For some examples, visit our Jackie’s Fund page.
