Looking for a new dog? We've partnered with Golden State Greyhound Adoption to offer dog adoption events at our Benicia store. Attending a Golden State Greyhound Adoption 'Meet-and-Greet' is a greyt way for you to get a hands-on introduction to the breed, speak in person with adoption coordinators and get answers to any questions you may have.
Golden State Greyhound Adoption is 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 Colorado racetracks, although we also help rescue dogs from Arizona and Mexico.
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.
