The following has been received from the National Greyhound Association:
“The National Greyhound Association (NGA) has long wanted to provide a resource list of credible, responsible adoption groups to their membership, owners, kennels, haulers and trainers. The list may also prove to be an assistance to those coordinating hauls and hopefully will be another re-direct for those looking to adopt. The list is comprised of groups they feel are responsible in practices as well as their professionalism towards our sport and dogs. Northwest Canadian Greyhound League has been nominated to be added to the list.
The NGA is proud to include your adoption group as part of our inaugural list. The list can be viewed at www.ngagreyhounds.com/adopt
Thank you for all the hard work and dedication you put into our Greyhounds. We are proud to consider you one of our Responsible Adoption Partners.

Foster Homes Needed!
NORTHWEST CANADIAN GREYHOUND LEAGUE
We are DESPERATE for foster homes! We can only bring in Greyhounds based on the number of foster homes available. Please help us help the dogs!
Greyhounds that come straight off the track need to learn how to behave in a house. They need to learn all about things like; linoleum, carpet, stairs, cats, little dogs, windows, mirrors and much more. Foster families take a Greyhound into their home and spend time teaching it how to be a wonderful house dog. They then have to be strong of heart and give the Greyhound up when it’s ready for adoption. Failing at fostering simply means falling in love with your foster and wanting to keep it. If you fail too often you won’t have room to foster anymore Greyhounds and that is what we consider a loss, but a happy loss! Usually, the fostering period only lasts 1-2 weeks

Do you own or are you fostering a male Greyhound that likes to mark everything in sight? We have just the right training tool for you and they are being custom made by one of NCGL’s volunteers.
Belly Bands have proven over and over that marking ends promptly after a few wearings. How long to have your dog wear a belly band and when to stop using? That is a personal decision, but if the dog/foster stays dry overnight while wearing one, use is usually discontinued.
