Our adoption fee covers some of our veterinary costs, including spay/neuter; blood and fecal testing; current vaccinations including rabies , distemper combo and bordetella; de-worming; flea/tick and heartworm prevention; microchip; and an SA Greys identification tag. Adopters also receive a martingale collar, leash, muzzle and your greyhound’s first toy. Our expenses total about $600 for each dog (often much more), and the adoption fee helps to defray at least some of those expenses. Fees aren't tax-deductible and they are non-refundable once an adoption is completed. Your contributions are tax-deductible.
