Since racing ended in Florida, there are fewer greyhounds available for adoption. Awesome Greyhound Adoptions occasionally receives retired racers from West Virginia, a state that still has greyhound racing. These dogs can be brought in for families who have submitted our application and paid the adoption fee. The fee covers the dog's transport and medical expenses. The adoption fee is currently $600. The wait time for a West Virginia racer can be 3 months or more.


We also receive retired racers from Ireland. The adoption fee for these greyhounds is currently $1,200, which covers a significantly higher transport fee along with the medical checkup. Irish racers can only be transported to Florida during the winter months, as it is far too hot for this precious cargo during the summer.
