Adoption Module

The following questionnaire is intended for the purpose of gathering initial basic information about candidates seeking to adopt one of the greyhounds saved from the Macau Canidrome. The questions are purely for information purposes, as a first step in the pre adoption assessment process, and completion of the questionnaire does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt a Canidrome greyhound.

Once the greyhounds have been released from the Canidrome and handed over to the care of Anima Macau, each application for adoption will be individually assessed. 

If your application is accepted, the pre adoption assessment will be followed up by a telephone call and then a pre adoption homecheck, which will be carried out by a representative of the local rescue or adoption group in your country which has joined the Save the Macau Greyhounds campaign.

If your homecheck is successful, the greyhound best suited to your family and lifestyle will then be selected from among those available for adoption. Our aim is to entrust you with a friend for life, and to guarantee to each greyhound a family who will love and respect him for life too.
