Greyhound Adoption Center

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 114 people are interested

Help rescued greyhounds with hands-on care for a "turnout" session. Greyhound Adoption Center has 35-50 rescued greyhounds in its kennel facility in El Cajon, California. The dogs go out in small groups during three-hour shifts four times a day, every day. We need volunteers to work inside the dog trailer, freshening beds, feeding and medicating the dogs, providing fresh water, and taking the dogs in and out of their crates. We will need assistance with laundry and dishes, and help sanitize the common areas after turnout. We also need volunteers to monitor the dogs in their turnout area, clean up after them and give them attention. The three-hour shifts begin at 7:00am, 10:30am, 3:00pm and 7:30pm, every day.

Mission Statement

To rescue, rehabilitate and find quality, loving homes for ex-racing, shelter and owner-relinquished greyhound dogs.


Greyhound Adoption Center is a California-based, grassroots 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and finding quality, loving homes for greyhounds in need. We are volunteer-run and staffed almost entirely by volunteer efforts, with 200+ volunteers throughout California and in the Las Vegas area. GAC was founded in 1987, and is one of the oldest and largest greyhound rescue groups in the country.

We take in ex-racing greyhounds, as well as greyhounds and greyhound-mixes from shelters and owner relinquishments. We are a no-kill organization and place no time limit on a greyhound's stay with us until the right home is found. We also take in greyhounds of any age and medical condition.

GAC is dedicated to the life of each individual greyhound and providing quality medical treatment, socialization and care until we place the dog in a quality, loving home.



We'll work with your schedule.
