It's the end of the year, and time to start thinking about
your year end donations. GAC is a great place to start.
If you ever wondered how money donated to GAC is
used, here is an example. In 2013 GAC rescued 140
greyhounds. GAC saved many young dogs bred for
racing and many older dogs used for breeding with
nowhere to go since the greyhound racing industry is
Lots of ex racers were rescued, and GAC partnered with
other greyhound organizations to save as many dogs
as possible. Of the track dogs saved, eleven had broken
legs. Seven had such severe injuries, they required major
surgery, averaging $2,100 per dog. After surgery care,
including splints, bandages,medicine and pain relief costs
came to an additional $1,000 per dog. Remember those
costs don’t include daily feeding, care and maintaining
In return for your generous donations this year, GAC will
send you a free Greyhound Adoption Center car window
decal and a 16 month 2014 Greyhound wall calendar.

GAC and Petco are planning a Mega Adoption Event at
11:00-3:00 and we would love to have you join us!
If you’ve never been a part of our of our Mega events,
these are fantastic opportunities to find homes for a LOT
We will heavily promote the event with fliers in the
stores, word of mouth with customers, online and in
social media. Plus this store shares a parking lot with a
Costco and Walmart in a busy shopping center, so it
gets a lot of traffic on the weekends. We have a large
area of the parking lot that we’re able to block off. We
will have other fun activities there such as a face
painter for the kids, raffle prizes, free food and drinks
from Panda Express, Subway and Starbucks, and food
vendors there with samples.
