Review for Second Chance Greyhounds Inc, Douglasville, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Second Chance Greyhounds is a very "different" adoption organization. After a very negative experience with another large adoption organization, I started researching various greyhound adoption groups. I am so happy that I found Second Chance Greyhounds! I have adopted three hounds from them who all graduated from their prison training program. The program makes the transition from the dogs life as a racer, to a new life as a family pet so much easier!
Once I adopted my two hounds, I began volunteering with this wonderful group. I help with adoptions, fostering, updating the available dogs blogs, and post adoption support. This organization is like no other. Once you adopt one of their hounds, you become one of the family. I am very proud to be involved in this wonderful organization. The work they do, finding forever homes for these magnificent dogs, makes such a difference not only in life of the dog, but in the lives of the people who adopt them. It's a family. The Second Chance Greyhound Family!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I adopted three of my hounds from this organization. I was very impressed with the entire process.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hope that more people would volunteer. Foster homes are always needed. It actually is a great way for someone who isn't quite sure if they should adopt one of their own.
