Greyhound Adoption Center



SAMOSA is a two year old retired greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center in El Cajon.  She arrived from the Caliente racetrack in Mexico on December 19 with nine others, all named for Indian Foods.  Samosa is just an all around good girl – she likes cats, small dogs, and children of all ages!  She is friendly, exuberant, happy and playful and will make a wonderful companion for any family.


All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation after arrival.  They are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and undergo a thorough dental cleaning.  They are then fully evaluated for temperament and personality as well as tested with cats, small dogs, and children before being profiled for a home.


Please come out and meet Samosa and her 42 companions on Sunday, February 21, 2016 when the Greyhound Adoption Center hosts an Open House and tour of their facility from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.  The address is 4821 Dehesa Road in El Cajon.  This is a great opportunity to visit with GAC volunteers and learn more about greyhound rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, and volunteer opportunities.  For more information call toll free at 1-877-478-8364, visit their website at, or follow GAC on Facebook.
