|What a handsome boy!|
A couple of months ago, we were contacted by Tate's parents. They were looking for a reliable, dependable walker for their soon-to-be adopted greyhound. Boy, were they ever thorough in their interview process! We were quite pleasantly surprised by how much they wanted to know about us; specifics about our type and level of care, our walking practices, our insurance, our experience and training ... they really checked us out! And, that was only Step 1 of the interview process!
|An AWESOME Walking Companion!|
The end result was that Tate's parents were granted their adoption, we were granted permission to be his walker, and Tate was rescued from what was sure to be a bad end. Tate was placed in a loving home, with loving parents who are providing him the very best of everything (including the very best walker, of course)! None of this would have been possible had his doggy parents not been willing to give Tate a second chance at life, and would have been much more difficult without the help and support of Golden State Greyhound Adoptions, who "exist to educate the public on the plight of the retired racing greyhound in order to find great homes for former-racing greyhounds".

We love having Tate in our lives as a furry-faced client! Tate's parents have accepted the commitment of caring for a rescued greyhound, and their lives are richer for it! We are thankful that his parents have given us the opportunity to care for Tate, and are grateful that people like Stuart Homer and organizations like Golden State Greyhound Adoptions exist.
