RAITA  is a six year old retired greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center.  She arrived with nine others from the Caliente racetrack  on December 20, all named for Indian Foods!  Raita cannot be placed with cats but she is small dog friendly and would enjoy living in a home with older children.  Even at the age of six, Raita is still happy, playful, and spirited. 


All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, 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 young children before being profiled for a home.


Please come out and meet Raita and her 45 companions on Sunday, March 20, 2016when 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.
