Adoption Application


BRGA operates in the Northern Virginia, DC, and Maryland areas shown in the map. If you are unsure if your area is covered or if you are just outside our area, we recommend you send us an email at prior to completing the application. For those of you who happen to be outside our area, we can usually provide recommendations on adoption groups operating closer to your home.

If your family has a cat or very small dog, we will do our best to find a greyhound that has been cat-tested and exhibits low prey drive; however, it may take a bit longer to find the right match for your family.
