Providing a safe place to grow confidently.
Foster homes are the most important part of the GRANT program – we couldn't assess the greyhounds and re-home them without the foster families.
Each home plays a vital role in helping our greyhounds adjust to life outside the racing kennel. Sometimes this adjustment period is easy, other times it is more difficult and the dog needs all the patience, consideration, love and understanding that you can give.
Having a wide range of foster families is important as we have to fit the homes to the greyhounds. Not every dog is the same, some thrive on a footy team of kids to play with, others prefer a quieter home and it’s a challenge to find a perfect fit sometimes.
