We are starting to accept out of state adoption applications, but it may take a bit longer than normal to coordinate the process.
Thank you for your understanding.
We have plenty of hounds looking for their happy homes. Please feel free to check them out! At this moment, we can ONLY accept applications from Connecticut residents. We will provide an update when this changes.
Paisley is almost 3 years old and never raced. Paisley has gone through the program with Connecticut Prison Greyhounds Inc. and is prison trained!
All you need is Love! Love is a sweet, affectionate girl who loves her humans– she’s a real love bug! Love is calm for her age, and can be a little timid at first, but settles quickly and will give you a little tail wag whenever you walk by her.
We have plenty of opportunities coming up for you to meet our adoptable dogs! Come out and say hello! We’d love to help answer any questions you may have and spread the word about what makes these dogs so greyt! Feel free to check out our Events calendar as well!

WAG is always welcoming more helping hands! Whether it be donating food for the pups, helping new pups transition to home life in their foster homes, or parading dogs around at adoption events, every effort is much appreciated! Find out more about how you can get involved below!
Our adoptable dogs are placed in foster homes to help them become adjusted to life off the track. If you’d like to learn more about how to become a potential foster home and what that entails, click above.
We are always in need of a variety of items to help care for our foster dogs! Whether it be physical items such as toys, leashes, collars, food, or monetary donations, every item goes to helping these dogs to have the most comfortable transition as possible. To read about all the different ways you could help, please visit our How to Donate page.
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. Every item available for purchase on www.amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile at the same price. It’s super easy to set up! For more information on how to have it donate it WAG, please visit our How to Donate page.
We are always in need of dog beds for our foster dogs. If you would like to donate a dog bed, please check out Kuranda’s Dog Beds!
