monicaBuilding lifelong relationships between retired racers and loving, nurturing families.

Our Mission Statement:

Greyhound Connection is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, formed and operating in San Diego County, California to promote and facilitate the adoption of retired racing greyhounds into caring and responsible forever homes. We strive to accomplish this mission in accordance with the following guiding principles:

- Fostering in a home environment to acclimate the greyhound to life off the track and ensure a smooth transition into a permanent home.
- Careful screening of adoption applicants and their home environment to assure a safe and comfortable setting for adopted greyhounds.
- Responsible adoption practices, including spay or neuter, vaccinations, health assessment and dental care prior to adoption.
- Follow-up support, as needed, to ensure the long-term needs of the greyhound and their adoptive family are met.
- Educate the public on the gentle and loving nature of the greyhound breed through our website, meet and greets and fundraising events.

Most importantly, we strive to act in the best interests of, and to make a difference for, one greyhound at a time.

How Can I Help?

There are many ways that you as an individual can make a difference to the life of even just one greyhound. Greyhound Connection exists entirely on the contributions of its volunteers and we come in many forms. Not sure how you can make a difference?


The Joys of Fostering

If you adopt one greyhound this year, that's one life you have saved. By fostering even three or four greyhounds a year, think of how many greyhounds will have you to thank for their new lives!


About Us

We are an eclectic group of dedicated volunteers with numerous years of experience with greyhounds. Our organization, though relatively small, prides itself on providing personalized support. We are here to help our adopters before, during, and after placement.
