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.

    With increased awareness of the spread of COVID 19 and the preventative measures announced for Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba,  NSGA is taking the necessary steps to do all we can to minimize spread risk to our families and supporters. 

    • All dog transports from the US are on hold till further notice.  For this reason we are putting an immediate hold on accepting new applications, and home visits for those who have submitted applications will be on HOLD until dogs are available.  Any potential families meeting foster dogs will be carefully screened prior to arranging a visit
     

    If you are considering adopting a greyhound or lurcher, please 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.
