Why Greyhounds As Pets?

The decision to welcome a greyhound into the home is one that can bring a lot of excitement, satisfaction and pride to show off your new four-legged friend. That said it is not a decision that should be taken lightly. That is why the dedicated staff at Greyhounds As Pets are with you for the whole journey.

We pride ourselves on not only matching the right dog to you and your circumstances but on our customer service, and this begins a long time before a greyhound sets foot in your home.

Not only do we provide you with a comprehensive website which provides a world of information all about greyhounds and ownership at your finger tips, but we are always on hand to provide as much advice and support as needed.

There are a number of greyhounds available to be re-homed via different avenues and agencies, so why should you choose a greyhound from Greyhounds As Pets?

  • All our greyhounds are behaviourally assessed to ensure their suitability as a pet.
  • Our greyhounds often undergo fostering (either with the potential adopters or a foster carer) where they make the transition to pet life.
  • All our greyhounds are desexed, have their teeth cleaned, are vaccinated, microchipped and lifetime registered with the companion animals register (NSW) (which is the council registration that is completed prior to going to their new home).
  • All our greyhounds go to their new home with up to date flea, heartworm and intestinal worm treatments.
  • All our greyhounds go to their new homes with a lead, collar and muzzle. If the greyhound has already passed their assessment to become a Greenhound, the new owner will also receive their Greenhound collar and ID tag. See http://www.greenhounds.com.au/ for more information on Greenhounds.
