How to adopt

When a person wishes to adopt a rescued galgo, they must contact us directly. SOS Galgos only permits adoptions in places where we can make checks before and after the animal is transferred to the new owner.

The first requirement is to complete the Adoption Application Form.

This is followed by a visit to the home of the prospective adopter to check the suitability of the environment and to discuss the characteristics
of the greyhound they wish to adopt.


Ideally, the adopter would visit the galgo at the point of recovery (usually the foster home or an animal shelter) before taking him to his new home. But this is not always possible.

Once in their new home, the adoption is subject to a trial period to ratify the Adoption Agreement. Once completed we will perform a series of later visits to check that both the adopted animal and adopters are happy.
