Southern California Greyhound Adoption Legion was established for the primary purpose of assisting in the placement of ex-racing greyhounds by fostering Hemopet kennel residents and owner-returned greyhound companions. When a foster home is open and no appropriate Hemopet greyhound is available, a greyhound may be transferred from another greyhound rescue group.
Featured Greyhound Val is available for adoption through SoCalGAL. Val wants you to know all of these things about him: "I love people. I love children. I love all other animals: cats, birds, small dogs, big dogs-- am I forgetting anything? I am housetrained. I lived in a home for about 2 months, but I was the only dog. That was okay, because I had a mom who was home all day with me. But she just went back to work, and there was no one in the house-- not even a bird or cat. I can live with Anyone and Everyone-- I just can't be home alone all day as an only dog. I also have a seizure disorder which is really well-controlled with medicine." Now Val is back at the Hemopet kennel after being out in the big wide world. This isn't the best place for him anymore. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE FIND IT IN THEIR HEART TO FOSTER OR ADOPT HIM REALLY SOON?
Foster Greyhounds FOSTER HOMES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF OUR GROUP. This is not an exaggeration. All of our available greyhounds are kept in foster homes, and we can always use new foster homes. Many more Greyhounds are waiting in kennels and on farms, and we would like to have as many foster dogs as possible. If you have room in your home and your heart for an ex-racing Greyhound, on a temporary basis, and would like to experience the joys of being a foster parent, please contact us! All food and any medication is provided. It costs nothing, but gives the world, if you are able to foster one of the Hemopet dogs!
Adopt A Greyhound If you are considering adoption, please complete the Application on the Adoption Application page. One of our volunteers will contact you to discuss available foster greyhounds and the adoption process. Our adoption fee is $275.00
