Some of the animals up for adoption include:

Name: Gordon
Breed: Greyhound
Age: 4 years old
Gender: Neutered Male
More details:
Four year old Gordon is a retired greyhound residing at the Greyhound Adoption Center in El Cajon. He arrived from the Caliente racetrack on September 22, 2018 with Moore, Grove, Noyce, Robert and Andy, all named for founders of the Intel Corporation. Gordon cannot live in a home with cats and would prefer the company of dogs over 30 pounds, as well as older, respectful children. He is a very strong, friendly boy!
All dogs from the Greyhound Adoption Center have a complete medical evaluation, are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and undergo a thorough dental cleaning after arrival. 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.
Stop by and visit with GAC volunteers at the Cupids and Canines event and meet some of our adoptable greyhounds! For more information call toll free at 1-877-478-8364, visit, send a message to, or follow GAC on Facebook!

Name: Luna
Breed: Chihuahua
Age: Puppy
Sex: Spayed Female
Weight: 5 pounds
More details:
Luna is a 5-pound chihuahua-terrier mix rescued by a Good Samaritan. Luna was only a few weeks old and so tiny she could fit in a shirt pocket. Her foster family cared for her around the clock and she is now a romping stomping healthy puppy! Luna has now graduated to fitting in her foster mom’s sweatshirt pocket. Luna’s full grown weight should be under 10 pounds.
Luna may be tiny, but she is mighty. She is spunky and loves to play. She is energetic like most puppies and loves to run around in her foster family’s yard. She wrestles with her canine foster brother and is generally friendly with all dogs she meets. Her favorite game is “Fetch”. She loves meeting new people, and showers them with the sweetest puppy kisses. She has a pleasing personality which makes her a good fit for most families. She will thrive in a home with other dogs but will do just fine on her own too.
Luna is currently working on her potty training and house training. She is also working on crate training, and her family will want to continue to work on this with her. All TRD adoptions come with a coaching session with a trainer and with Luna crate training will be an important focus. Luna understands Come and Name Recall. Her forever family will want to continue her training and help her grow into a well behaved dog.
Luna will be a great addition to a family looking to adopt a small breed puppy. If you would like to meet Luna, please fill out an adoption application at and an adoption coordinator will be in touch to schedule a meet and greet.
