About Us

Connecticut Greyhound Adoption - GPA is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose mission is to find permanent, loving homes for retired racing greyhounds. To fulfill this mission, our goals are threefold: to inform and educate the public about the joys of greyhound adoption; to identify suitable, caring homes for retired racers; and, to provide pre- and post-adoption support to facilitate the transition from track to home. CGA endeavors to work cooperatively with the greyhound racing industry to help as many greyhounds as possible, including special needs dogs.
