Group X gives to Golden State Greyhound Adoption
Golden State Greyhound Adoption is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that places retired racing greyhounds in adoptive homes in Northern California, including the San Francisco Bay Area, greater Sacramento area and beyond. Our ex-racing greyhounds come primarily from Florida racetracks. They are trucked from Florida to Colorado where Dr. Heather Weir DVM vets them and takes care of them until she transports them to California.
When racing greyhounds are deemed no longer profitable–either because they aren’t winners or have sustained an injury–kennels often try to adopt out these dogs, but sadly, many are destroyed, often before they reach the age of four or five.
That’s where rescue organizations like Golden State Greyhound Adoption come in–to save these wonderful hounds. Greyhounds are sweet, gentle animals that adapt well to home life and make great companions and loving pets. Established in 2002, we are a West Coast-based rescue group and are one of the largest in Northern California.

Group X gives to Rafael House
At Raphael House, we see homelessness as a temporary state that doesn’t define a person. We understand that homelessness can result from unexpected circumstances, whether economic, health-related, or because of a breakdown in family structure. We provide families an opportunity to take ownership of their futures and improve the quality of their lives through a nurturing and supportive process that emphasizes the importance of strong families and personal dignity.
