Pay the Adoption Fee via PayPal
We require a non-refundable adoption fee at the time an adoption is finalized. This fee helps to cover a portion of the costs we incur prior to adoption and the items provided to you when you receive your dog.
For U.S. greyhounds the adoption fee is $650 ($500 for senior hounds 8 years of age or older), which covers approximately 78% of the vetting cost and worming treatment each dog receives prior to adoption.
For Irish greyhounds the adoption fee is $1350 and covers approximately 80% of the cost we incur to bring the dogs to the U.S. for adopton. These dogs arrive fully vetted, are up to date on all legally required vaccinations, and have USDA approved health certificates.
If you wish to pay this fee online via PayPal you may do so here; you do not need a PayPal account to use this online payment service. The PayPal fee of 2.33% for this processing, $15.15 for U.S. hounds, $11.65 for senior hounds, and $31.46 for Irish dogs, will be added to the adoption fee, for a total of $665.15, $511.65, and $1381.46 respectively.
You may, of course, provide a check for the adoption fee to your adoption rep at the time your paperwork is signed and avoid the online processing fees. Checks should be made payable to GPA MN.
