    APPLICATION UPDATE

    Our last group of dogs for 2019 will be arriving the third week of October.  They will be AVAILABLE for ADOPTION so get your application in soon!

    If you are considering adopting a greyhound or lurcher, please review the information provided below before submitting an application and review the information on the site regarding our adoption process. Note that as of September 1, 2018, NSGA will no longer place greyhounds and lurchers in homes with children under 3 years of age. 

    Please review our Available for Adoption page. We are accepting applications for those dogs on the page that do not currently have a Pending Adoption. If you could indicate on your application if there is a specific dog that you are interested in, it would be very helpful. This page changes often so check back on a regular basis.

    We respect the time commitment made by other adoption groups and ask that if you are also working with another group, that you not submit an application to NSGA until such time as you have withdrawn it from the other group.

    MEET AND GREETS

    UPDATED - AUGUST 21 - Calgary Foks!  Join us for an Ice Cream Social - September 14!

    Pet Planet Glenmore Landing

    1600 90 Ave SW Calgary

    11 am – 1 pm

     We have very few meet and greets scheduled as there has been a shortage of dogs available for Adoption.  If you live in the Edmonton area and want to spend some time with greyhounds, please contact us directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange a meeting.  

    Meet and Greets provide a greyt opportunity to meet greyhounds in person and talk to their owners about the joys of adopting a greyhound or lurcher.

    Meet & Greets are hosted by NSGA volunteers who typically bring their own pets along with them. There will not necessarily be "adoptable" dogs at each outing as these events are intended to be a starting point for those considering adoption. You will however, have the chance to meet some lovable hounds, scratch a few ears, and gather information about our organization.
