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.
Racing is not one of Gus’ strengths, so he has retired early! Gus is brother to WAG hounds Bo (fka Gazoo), Gunther, and Gia.
Wren is a brindle girl who will be joining us soon.

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.
