April is NATIONAL ADOPT A GREYHOUND MONTH!  So please meet MAX,  a three year old retired greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center.  He arrived from the Caliente racetrack on February 13 with eight other greyhounds.  Max cannot be placed in a home with a cat but he is small dog and other breed friendly.   Max is just an all around good fellow; he is happy and playful and will make a wonderful companion for an active family with children of all ages.  

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 Max and his 45 companions on Sunday, April 17, 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!
