PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING A GREYHOUND !!

Greyhound Rescue of Idaho  has the possibility to get greyhounds to our area, every few months,

So it is very Important for you to get an application filled out and sent to us As soon as you

are interested!  The application does not tie you into adopting but gives you and GRI the

opportunity to get to know each other and sit down and talk to see if a greyhound would truly

be the right fit for you!

 The Greyhounds we get are either spayed/neutered, teeth cleaned,  health checked,  vaccines, heart worm tested,

dewormed, tickborne disease bloodwork done, chipped, bathed & clean!

  We are now ONLY bringing in greyhounds for those folks

who have filled out applications, are approved and are ready to adopt a

greyhound into their homes....so if you are truly interested in adopting,

 you can print off an application from this website, under adoption info; and mail it to us or call

us with any questions you may have!  

 (Weather  has an influence on when the  greyhounds arrive, as they come a long distance to us!)

 We only adopt to folks in  the Treasure Valley Idaho area, 

Twin Falls & Idaho Falls areas, or as far as Ontario, Baker City and LaGrande Oregon....

so if you  are in a different state or area

we will refer you to an adoption group closer to you....we are HAPPY to help you find

a greyhound to adopt!!    You MUST have a fenced yard for your

new greyhound and always keep your greyhound on a leash outside of a safely

fenced area for the lifetime of the dog !

  The Adoption fee is $275.00

WE INVITE YOU TO ENTER THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF GREYHOUNDS!!

GREYHOUND RESCUE OF IDAHO HAS LOST A MEMBER

It is With Greyt sympathy that we extend this farewell to Coco Chanel.
 
Greyt sympathy to Tori, her mom. To Gary, her dad,
to Kay her aunt, to Sammy her greyhound brother, and to Rufus and Daffy ...
her canine brother and sister. And to ALL who knew and loved her. Which includes so many!

She came to GRI as "Garlic Natalie". We knew her as Sadie, soon tho her new mom, Tori, chose the most perfect and elegant name of all. Coco Chanel !! 
                                                 It fit her!

She was loved beyond measure and she returned that love to so many; children, adults and countless other greyhounds that she helped rescue just by being at almost every event and monthly meet and greet that there was.
                              She was GRI's Social Butterfly!

She went with her mom Everywhere and she Loved Everyone; she was always at her mom's work, dog walks, schools, she was on every GRI float, Christmas shows, greyhound reunions. Coco was a registered therapy dog and touched the lives of many, many children.

Coco was our Mascot and she will be missed terribly. She also was one of the biggest blessings to our group, her family and others. They (all the greyhounds are special), But Coco became not only her mom's Heart Hound, but to the many people who knew and loved her, she was an Inspiration!

Coco, you now are free to run the streets of gold with all the other greyhounds who have gone before you. Be happy, healthy and forever young, little one!
 
You are not in our past, but in our future!
 
Wait at the bridge sweet girl for all of us, cause when we arrive in heaven, you are one of the first sweet faces I want to kiss!

And to Tori, a Big Thank you for Loving Coco Chanel.......you and your family are in our prayers...

from All your friends at Greyhound Rescue of Idaho

Career day at Linder Elementary

 GRI volunteers were once again invited back to Linder Elementary's annual Career Day! We met with students in 12 classes and told them about our experience rescuing Greyhounds. As usual, the dogs had a GREYT time meeting the kids and loved all the attention they received. Students were reminded that whatever career they pursue, it's important to be a positive part of the community and help out with a cause they believe in.

If you would like Greyhound Rescue of Idaho to visit your school with the greyhounds,

please give us a call !!    208-461-1978

Beat The Heat for Your Greyhound & other pets~

We won't make you wait any longer... here's our TIP OF THE DAY, courtesy of Louise Sawyer: Although greyhounds are short-coated creatures, they are extremely sensitive to both heat and humidity. Make sure hounds have plenty of fresh, cool drinking water available to them at all times. Put ice cubes in the water to encourage them to drink. Some dogs like to 'bob' for them. Air conditioners and fans... will help our dogs keep their cool, too. Pull window shades, shut drapes, and turn out the lights on hot days. Fill a spray bottle with water and put it in the fridge. When you take your dog outside for a walk or some playtime, you can periodically give him a spritzing of cold water. Greyhounds love kiddie pools and will often lay down in them to get relief from the heat. Give dogs ample opportunity to rest and re-hydrate.        Enjoy the dog days of summer!!                                                           (Courtesy from Maine Greyhound Placement)
