Adoption Application

MoKan Greyhound Adoption wants both the Greyhound and the Greyhound owner to be happy. It is our goal to make the best possible match between the Greyhound and their prospective adopter. The answers you provide on this application will assist us in finding a Greyhound best suited for your particular home. Note: If there is more than one adult in the household, each person must be listed in the information below.

We DO make placements in the northern and western areas of Missouri and we make placements in much of Kansas.  WE DO NOT MAKE PLACEMENTS IN ST. LOUIS, MO or the surrounding areas and we do not make placements outside of these two states.

Our adoption program supports the racing industry.

If the form doesn't give you a confirmation message after hitting submit, please check the top of the page for an error message.

About You and Your Family
In which type of area do you live?
*Please note that if you have children under the age of 13, you will be required to read “How to Live with Kids and Dogs...Without Losing Your Mind” by Colleen Pelar. We do not typically adopt to families with children under the age of 5 that do not have a fence but, we will consider these adoptions on a case-by-case basis.
Are your children/grandchildren knowledgeable about pets?
Are there any family members unsteady on their feet or who have special needs using assistance such as a wheelchair or walker?
Have you or your family ever seen or met a Greyhound?
Do you currently have an active application with another Greyhound adoption program?
*If you have an active application with more than one Greyhound adoption program, we will ask you to finish things with all other programs before we will work with you. Please understand that our program is run entirely by volunteers and most of them work full time jobs. We try not to waste their time.
