Help more dogs retire! Sign up to be a foster parent

Volunteers on Retirement Day are needed!

We bring in as many greyhounds as we have foster homes. If you would like to foster one, please read our Foster Manual and then contact Laurie Gerber, the foster coordinator,

A retirement day is a greyt experience for experienced greyhound companions and first time volunteers alike. Each dog will need a friendly human guide through exams and bath time. Please join us to see these dogs taking their first steps off the track! The dogs usually arrive around 11 AM. Volunteers that would like to help set-up are welcome to arrive after 10 AM. We provide lunch for volunteers.

If you are just interested in seeing the dogs just arriving from the track, you are welcome to join us and see the most recently retired greyhounds. This will be their début as a pet and they will be bewildered, but enjoying the attention.

The event is held at the home of Tom & Joyce McRorie, 1210 N. Cypress St., La Habra Heights, CA 90631. Be aware that there is no on-street parking in La Habra Heights, so you need to park south of the curve, in La Habra.

Directions to the location are available by clicking here.

Retirement days are scheduled when we have enough foster homes to bring in greyhounds from the track. Retirement days are a greyt time for volunteers to get together, and see the new dogs, but they are also a working day for many of the volunteers. If you are interested in helping, you can sign up for a job with the volunteer coordinator at the check in table.
