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

Rating: 5 stars  

Our family was ready to expand and so I had begun looking for a dog. Because of our busy schedules, we needed a dog which would "slide" into our family style and adapt quickly. It seemed like an impossible requirement. One day I saw an ad about Second Chance Greyhounds. I went to their website and researched the breed. Back at the website I learned more about the greyhounds in Second Chance. I realized that one of these dogs was perfect for our family! I contacted the group and was suprised to learn how serious they were about making sure our family understood the needs of a greyhound and the commitment our family would be making. I felt really good about that!! This group puts a lot of love and effort into making sure the dogs will be protected and properly cared for before they allow someone to adopt them. Additionally, the group offers support throughout ownership. There are meetings, events, foster programs, sitters, play groups, somany things that are postive and supportive for the people and the dogs. After my first adoption, I later fostered another greyhound and later adopted her too. They are amazing dogs coming out of an amazing program!! Second Chance is WONDERFUL!!!

The greyhounds have been fantastic dogs. They are part of our family. They engage with anyone! We take them with us to visit my grandmother in the nursing home. When we are out, people stop to greet the dogs and are amazed at how gentle and friendly they are.

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

Our group is not centralized and events sometimes seem too far away. However, the group does a lot of things and we participate when we can.
