GAC 30 for 30 – Celebrating 30 Greyt Years!
The Greyhound Adoption Center turns 30 this year — #30greytyears!
30 years of rescuing greyhounds and greyhound mixes.
30 years of dedicated service from countless volunteers.
30 years of extraordinarily generous donations from people who believe in our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home retired track dogs.
It all started with our Founder, Darren Rigg rescuing his first greyhound, a former track dog, from the streets of San Diego in 1984. After learning that track dogs were destroyed once their racing days were over, he decided to take action. And so began the journey…
Thousands of rescued hounds later, we are celebrating the evolution of the Greyhound Adoption Center. From its humble backyard beginnings to the 3.5 acre kennel facility in Dehesa, our mission has never strayed for the past 30 years.
We’ve done some amazing things over the years, but until the last racetrack closes forever, there is more work to do. We need your help! Our goal is to raise $30,000 to continue rescuing and providing for these gentle and loving greyhounds #greytgiving. All proceeds will go directly to the care of the dogs!
It doesn’t take much! A $30 donation will purchase one bag of food. A $300 donation will purchase 10 bags of dog food. A $3,000 donation will purchase…well, you get the idea. Donate here
We hope greyhound racing will be a thing of the past soon, but in the meantime, let’s ensure that GAC can continue to rescue and provide for these deserving greyhounds.
