Greyhounds available for adoption in the Columbia SC 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.

Love just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track. She never actually raced. She had a minor shoulder injury in schooling in July so went back to the Bolton farm in Florida for a few weeks to rest and rehab. After she healed up and went back into schooling, she twisted her hock. Although it was not broken, it was pretty sore. The decision was made to retire her rather than risking any further injury. We have quite a few photos of her because she was one of the racers a group of our volunteers followed online since her owners bought her at auction. Love is a sweet girl that seems very laid back and very loving. She passed her cat with only a couple of quick sniffs and would jump away if the cat approached her so she should be fine to live with cats and small dogs. Her sire is Gigawatt and her dam is KB's Rae Bae. She weighs around 60lbs but doesn't have an official racing weight since she never got that far. She just turned 2 on August 23rd. Our vet has looked at her leg and doesn't see any obvious lameness and the swelling has gone down already, so she should recover fully.

Moscato just arrived from the Orange Park Race Track in Jacksonville FL. He also raced briefly at Wheeling Downs in WV. He was a good racer, quickly getting up to the top A level but started coming in toward the back of the pack in his last 9 races so the decision was made to retire him. He raced a total of 55 races. Moscato raced at 72lbs and just turned 3 on Sept 4th. His sire is Kelsos Cork Man and his dam is JNS Monti Cristo. Moscato is a friendly guy. He passed his cat test with little interest and was afraid of the friendly cat that went up to him. So he should be able to live with cats or small dogs. He was introduced to a medium sized furry dog that he was also fine with. More as we get to know him.
