At least monthly I receive a phone call from someone telling me “Hey, I’ve got your dog!”
Technically, they really don’t have my dog. What they do have is a greyhound that has been adopted from American Greyhound. They just think it’s mine because my telephone number appears on the tags we assign to each dog.
The first thing I ask them for is the ID number on the tag. I can then access our database and determine who that dog belongs to from that number (they are usually right around the corner from the caller) and begin the process of getting the hound back home.
However, once in a while the telephone number, address, or other contact information in our database is incorrect which can make reuniting that hound with his or her family much more difficult, if not downright impossible.
For that reason, it is very important that if you move, if you get a new phone number, if almost anything about your contact information changes, that you notify us as soon as you can. We aren’t being nosy. We just want to be able to get your hound back to you in the easiest, quickest manner if they are to ever get out.
You can get us your information by email at email@example.com or
by mail at American Greyhound, PO Box 598, Hobart, IN 46342.
Thanks for helping us keep our records current and your hounds safe too!
