An all-volunteer nonprofit organization that places retired racing greyhounds in adoptive homes in Northern California, including the San Francisco Bay Area, greater Sacramento area and beyond. Our ex-racing greyhounds come primarily from Florida racetracks. They are trucked from Florida to Colorado where Dr. Heather Weir DVM vets them and takes care of them until she transports them to California.

When racing greyhounds are deemed no longer profitable–either because they aren’t winners or have sustained an injury–kennels often try to adopt out these dogs, but sadly, many are destroyed, often before they reach the age of four or five.
