Thank you for being a part of our family.

Greyhound Connection, a section 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was established in the spring of 2000. In our time, we found loving homes for over 400 retired racers in San Diego County, California! Our group has always relied on a small but dedicated group of volunteers to foster new dogs, do meet n' greets, home visits and placements as well as provide post-adoption support. This personalized approach made many wonderful relationships with greyhounds and their adopters. With fewer tracks in operation across the country, there is a smaller pool of greyhounds looking for homes. This, paired with fewer volunteers wishing to participate in recent years, has lead to our board's decision to discontinue Greyhound Connection.

We are happy to announce that Greyhound Adoption Center will be assuming adopter support responsibilities in the coming weeks and, with their large and modern kennel, is a great source for those looking to give a greyhound a home. Not only does GAC have your next greyhound, they also have lots of volunteer opportunities within the Southern California area and would gladly welcome your help and your donations. Please visit their site for more details. Phone numbers and specific links can be found on our Contact Us page.

 

2017 GC Reunion & Fundraiser

Sunday, September 24th, 11:00 – 2:00
Felicita Park, Escondido


GCpicnic 2017This year's picnic will be the last gathering of our GC community. For over 17 years, GC has been rescuing and providing homes for our beloved ex-racing greyhounds. Over our history as an organization, we have prided ourselves in having a very high permanent adoption success rate, which we attribute to the wonderful job of fostering the greys before adopting them out. Our adoption numbers may have been small relative to larger groups that operate kennels, but we have been true to our motto, "Making a difference, one greyhound at a time". 

However, in the last 5 years, things have changed. There are more tracks shutting down across the United States and there are considerably fewer ex-racers needing homes. And that is good. However, the reduced need to place greyhounds has made it difficult to recruit new resources needed to continue the GC approach of fostering prior to adoption. The GC Board of Directors has decided that our organization will be shutting down by the end of 2017 and our assets will be transferred to another greyhound adoption group, probably a group that operates its own kennel. 

Our main objective for this year's picnic is to thank everyone in our generous and compassionate community for the years of devotion and participation. We will still be having auctions, raffles and fundraising, but the proceeds will be donation to another greyhound adoption group.


$10 includes admission, Submarina sandwich, cookie and a drink. Food will be served from 12:00 – 1:00. If you were not able to register by September 23rd, extra lunches will be available for "walk-ins" but selection and quantity are not guaranteed.

There will be plenty of shaded space to set up your beds, x-pens, lawn chairs, etc. All greyhounds and other larger sighthounds are invited. Please do not bring your smaller pups. It is park rule that all dogs must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet

Driving directions: Exit I-15 at Via Rancho Parkway, drive west ~1 mile and turn right on Felicita Road. Continue ~ ¼ mile, entrance is on the left. We are once again in Area 1. Parking is $3 and exact change is necessary.

$10.00 Per Lunch
