North Coast Greyhound Connection & Adoption of Ohio is an all volunteer nonprofit organization whose address is Fremont, Ohio (though we adopt throughout North and Northwest Ohio), committed to placing retired racing greyhounds in loving homes. Every dollar that comes into our organization goes directly to help these kindred and gentle souls, there are no paid positions here at N.C.G.C. We are proud to take many Retired Racing Greyhounds that have broken legs, have them rehabilitated, and place them into foster and loving forever homes. One look into their beautiful brown eyes filled with gratitude reinforces the hours of work it takes to get them to their forever home!
Greyhounds, our passion
Our mission is to work together to educate people and place Greyhounds into retirement with loving “Forever” Families. We work with individual race tracks, kennels, and trainers both here in the United States and abroad, and have a soft spot for those Greyhounds that are older and have special needs.
When our new additions arrive, sometimes in the middle of the night, they are immediately washed and their health assessed. They are then taken to the Veterinary Hospital where they are given any specialized medical attention in addition to the normal spay/neuter, dental, identity micro chipping, de-worming, toe nail clipping, and vaccination. After a brief recovery, it is our intent to place them all into foster homes. During this transition they are tested to see if they are cat and small dog safe, which helps you in the selection of your new addition. We feel the foster home is an invaluable part of getting them ready for their “forever home.” Most people don’t realize that the greyhound only knows the kennel and the track. Foster families are important liaisons between the track and your home. Greyhounds usually don’t know how to use stairs, and though usually house broken, they need to learn how to fit into family life with all its new freedoms. Prior to your selection we can put you in touch with the foster family so they can describe to you their personality traits and answer your questions as well. This is why foster families are so important; they spend the time with each greyhound to make sure the transition into your home is a smooth and happy event. Our goal is to help make their retirement with you rewarding and fulfilling for you both.
