With the changes coming to the racing industry in Iowa, HGA has made a couple of changes.
First, effective July 1 our adoption fee will be changing. For dogs 0-7 the fee will be $275. For dogs 7 and older the fee will be $200. The application fee will change to $25 and will still be taken off the adoption fee upon adoption. Any applications received prior to July with adoptions completed in July will be grandfathered in with the current fees. Our average vetting expense is closer to $480 per dog.
Secondly, the HGA mission is to adopt out retired racing greyhounds. At this time we will no longer take in greyhound mixes or greyhounds from outside the racing industry. If anyone wishes to discuss this decision feel free to email Jorene at firstname.lastname@example.org.
