Woof Wednesday

Welcome to Woof Wednesday today I would like to introduce you to a very special organization, the National Greyhound Adoption Program. 

The National Greyhound Adoption Program was founded in Philadelphia, PA over 20 years ago.  Their mission is as follows:

•To help find loving, adoptive homes for former racing greyhounds

•To provide superior knowledge and support for greyhound adopters and other adoption groups

•To educate the public and spread awareness about the plight of the greyhound

•To provide specialized medical care specifically geared towards the greyhound

In fact, our family has firsthand experience with this organization as both my sister and her mother in law have adopted greyhounds through them.  I actually wrote a blog all about my sister's greyhound Buster Bob awhile back.  He will always hold a special place in our hearts.  And I would love others to experience the beauty of this breed as well. 

They are truly amazing dogs.  Most of these greyhounds come from former racing backgrounds which means usually they have had a rather rough life and so giving them a chance for happiness is a wonderful thing to do.

So please let me introduce you to one of the many greyhounds that are available for adoption through NGAP.  Meet Patrick who is an Italian Greyhound.

The link below will provide you with any further information regarding Patrick and how to adopt him.


{Please keep in mind a dog is a lifetime commitment. They need attention, love and time just like we do. In addition, adding a pet to the family does cost money in the way of food, health care,training,etc. So before adopting make sure you are willing to make that kind of commitment and have the resources to do so.}
