Augusta, GA

Greyhounds available in the Augusta GA Area.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO OUR ADOPTERS! Because of Covid 19 restrictions, the end of Florida greyhound racing in December, and the early closure of 3 more tracks during the pandemic, we have received far more applications than we can process in the coming months. The numbers of greyhounds available for adoption is falling quickly and will be nearly non existent by the end of this year. AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FROM NEW ADOPTERS!! If you have already submitted an application and received confirmation from our volunteers, you WILL be processed in the order of receipt IF we have greyhounds available. If you are already a GC adopter and in our system, please contact one of us or your adoption rep for help.

Direx just arrived from the Birmingham Race Course Adoption Group. He never actually raced in Birmingham and was just sent to them to place from the Southland Race Track in Arkansas. He also raced at Valley Race Track, Mardi Gras, and Dubuque. He raced 128 races and was a very good racer getting up to A level and even racing in Stakes races. Southland is probably the most competitive track in the country so you have to be good to race there and one of the faster dogs in the country to win there. Direx is truly a star. He raced 128 races. He raced at 74lbs so is a mid sized male. He just turned 5 on May 3rd. His sire is the very famous Kiowa Sweet Trey and his dam is Slatex Selene. Direx is very sweet and very outgoing. He wags lot. He passed his cat test with some initial curiosity but as soon as the cat swatted him he backed right up and wanted nothing more to do with it. He learned stairs quickly and seems to be settling in well. Already relaxed and laying on his back with his feet up in the air which is what we call a roach and something that only comfortable relaxed dogs do.

Camp is coming to us from Tabbatha Couch in Arkansas. She was a good racer that ran 51 races at Wheeling Downs. She went straight up to the top AA level there. She retired from racing after an injury in December of 2015. Camp went back to the farm to become a mom. She had a litter of 5 puppies in 2017 that are racers already. There is probably at least one more litter of pups that is not yet registered. Camp is a beautiful light fawn female with a thick fluffy coat. She is a good eater that is on the chubby side. She was free fed as much as she wanted at the farm so could stand to lose a few lbs. Her sire is the famous Flying Coal City and her dam is KB's Whisper Run. Camp will turn 7 on June 30th. Right before she left the farm Camp cut herself on some fencing and had to have stitches. She is completely healed up now but has a patch of hair that is growing back now. Camp is a calm sweet girl that seems happy and content with life. She loves to run around in the yard and roll around in the grass everyday so a fenced yard is a must for her. She is calm and friendly with kids of all sizes but she does have some sleep startle so needs a home with kids old enough to understand not to touch her when she is sleeping. She has been quiet since arriving and only barks sometimes when playing outside.
