for Sponsors for greyhounds awaiting placement in loving
homes. The average stay for each greyhound at GAO
Inc. after they retire from the racetrack is 2-4
weeks. This gives the greyhound time to be spayed or neutered,
recover from the surgery, and begin to become acclimated
to home life. Some stays are shorter and many are longer
to allow an injured or neglected greyhound time to regain
his or her health before placement.

with readying a retired racer for placement. Each dog arriving
at GAO Inc. is spayed or neutered, given vaccinations
for distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, parvovirus,
bordatella and rabies, tested for heartworm, de-wormed, and given
a thorough dental cleaning. Additional costs are continuously
incurred until the retiree is placed in a new home. During this
period, the cost of maintenance care is approximately $15.00

a greyhound for a week or two of maintenance or for his or her
entire stay at Greyhound Adoption of Ohio Inc.,
from surgery to placement. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
