Ticks are a year round nuisance.  Ticks don’t jump or fall from trees looking for their host.  Rather, ticks climb up to higher places off the ground and wait for a passerby so the tick can grab on to the new host.

Although ticks are year round, Fall is a particularly bad time for ticks (and fleas).  The cooler temperatures and shorter days cause these pesky parasites to seek warmer places to live.  That means your greyhound is a prime home.  Leaf piles, high grass, bushes, brush undergrowth are all prime places for ticks (and fleas) to hide.

Check out all our beautiful greyhounds looking for fur-ever homes at Adoptable Dogs.

Curious about greyhounds but not sure you want to commit to full-time ownership?   Do you want to help a greyhound find his/her forever home?  Consider Fostering!  Greyhound Welfare has a well developed fostering program to guide our foster parents.  We provide the supplies and mentor…you provide the love. Please complete a volunteer application.  The retired greyhounds thank you.
