Free adoptions all month long! Make a new friend for life!

West Palm Beach, Fl. - The Florida Senate has declared October as “Greyhound Adoption Month” and it will be an exciting month for pet adoption in Palm Beach County. Locally, Palm Beach Kennel Club, Greyhound Pets of America and Elite Greyhound Adoptions will offer free adoptions and hit the streets promoting the fact that “Greyhounds Make Gentle and Loving Pets.”

Palm Beach Kennel Club is sponsoring “Free Adoptions” for the entire month of October – a savings of $200. The adoption groups offer applications online and will interview potential families. Once applicants are approved, the pets are placed and the groups offer continued support. October will also be a busy month for promoting Greyhound adoption with visits to pet stores, local events, green markets and lots of pets at the track. For more information on adopting a Greyhound, you can visit the web sites listed below or contact the Kennel Club at (561) 683-2222, ext. 125.

About Greyhound Adoption:

Greyhounds who are retired need the love and companionship of an individual or family that can care for them. And they make great pets! They are gentle, friendly, affectionate and easy to care for. Because of their wonderful temperament, they are great with children. Greyhounds make excellent walking and jogging companions and easily settle into a life of retirement.

The Palm Beach Kennel Club works with Greyhound Pets of America and Elite Greyhound Adoptions to find good homes for retired Greyhounds. The groups screen and inform potential adopters in order to find the right dog for the right person or family. They are non-profit, volunteer-run groups that are very active in the community, participating in county-wide events, parades, visiting schools, hospitals, nursing homes and other care facilities.
