SUCCESS!! The Canidrome racetrack in Macau, China has closed and over 500 greyhounds have been rescued from the worst track in the world. Over 300 dogs were airlifted to the United States, and of those, 42 came to the Greyhound Adoption Center in San Diego, CA. These dogs represent one of the most vulnerable groups of greyhounds GAC has seen since its inception in 1987. All of the dogs we received needed immediate and extensive medical treatment.
GAC was chosen to facilitate this massive global effort to rescue the greyhounds because GAC is known locally and internationally as a credible, experienced resource center with the highest quality standards for rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption. Our caring, dedicated staff and volunteers spend time getting to know each dog’s unique personality, work with the dogs on an individual and a group basis, and provide each dog with unconditional love. ChaChaCha, Jitterbug and Gisela are three of the greyhounds rescued in this global effort.
We are so grateful for your past support of the “Birdies for Charity” fundraiser and ask for your continued support in this year’s golf tournament which is July 8th through July 14th. The funds raised by the Birdies for Charity fundraiser will allow GAC to help not only the Macau greyhounds, but future greyhounds that will come into the loving arms of the Greyhound Adoption Center.
You can make a one-time donation on the Birdies for Charity website; 100% of the donation comes back to GAC, plus a 5-10% bonus from Johne Deere. To donate online, please follow the directions on the website (click the button below) and include our birdie # 1277 in the section entitled “Please select your designated charity.”
We appreciate your support of our organization and we ask you to dig deep once again to help save these most deserving dogs. The greyhounds thank you for helping them!!
