Foster. Our foster "parents" are indispensable members of our community and provide the dogs with experience living in a real home while they await their forever family. We all get to know the dogs even better when they spend time in our homes and that helps with the adoption selections. Submit our online Foster Family Application and give a grey a place to stay while the adoption process proceeds and he/she learns all about "home."
If you prefer, you may also complete our paper Foster Family Application here. Fill it out carefully and email it to us at email@example.com or mail it to GPA Houston, P.O. Box 1692, Spring, TX 77383.
Please note that to foster you must be a current member of GPA-Houston. If you need to become a member or renew your membership, you can submit our online Membership Application.
Donate. In preparation for their forever homes, each of our hounds has been spayed/neutered, given a dental cleaning, tested for heartworm and tick-borne diseases and is given all the required vaccinations. Additionally, some of our hounds are given expensive and/or special veterinary care if they are heartworm or tick-borne disease positive or have special health issues. Veterinary costs are the single biggest expense GPA-Houston has to bear. You can help GPA-Houston continue its mission to find loving and responsible homes for greyhounds. GPA-Houston is a not-for-profit organization. Please consider donating to the care of our greyhounds.
