New Kennel Project
In 2008, the Greyhound Adoption Center relocated our rescue and adoption center from our longtime facility in Lakeside, California, to nearby El Cajon. GAC friends and family have come to call our new kennel site “Dehesa” after the name of the local neighborhood.
It’s been a long road already, and we still have a way to go to complete our vision, but we are hopeful to reach our goal with continued financial and physical help from GAC supporters.
- Own the adoption center and kennel facility for our rescued greyhounds
- Create a more user-friendly environment for the dogs, as well as adopters, volunteers and visitors
- Build crate-free living for the dogs once they have finished medical treatment
- More space to accommodate more dogs – increasingly critical as GAC brings more and more greyhounds with injuries into our program.
A Little History:
- Founded in 1987, GAC has grown from a two-person greyhound rescue effort operated out of a residence to a network of more than 200 volunteers throughout the state of California and in Las Vegas.
- Our founders are still involved. A core group of volunteers runs the organization on a daily basis.
- Our organization began as a founding chapter of Greyhound Pets of America. In 2000, we left GPA and became the Greyhound Adoption Center, operating independently according to our own philosophies, standards and processes.
- GAC closed escrow on our Dehesa property in August 2000. The site already housed the Canine Sports Center, and we have continued to operate the center while refurbishing and building our new rescue facilities.
