The mission of ESGAO is to provide education to the membership and the public about the characteristics of the racing greyhound and assist in the transition of the dogs from racing to companion pets.  ESGAO adopts retired racing greyhounds when they retire (or from individuals or groups that can no longer maintain care of the greyhound). ESGAO receives the dog(s), evaluates them for needed veterinary care, initial training, and temperament.  The dogs will be fostered to provide initial acclimation to home life.  


The team at ESGAO are volunteers who love Greyhounds, and enjoy each other’s company. We started this group to focus on the dogs, and concentrate on finding the best match for the dog and the family. We do this without pay, and in our spare time. These dogs have spent the first part of their lives part racing, and now they need a loving home to be a pet.


ESGAO operates exclusively as a not-for-profit charitable and educational entity within the definition expressly defined by Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. Additionally, contributions to ESGAO are deductible under Section 170(c)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (or of corresponding provisions of any future portions of United States Internal Revenue Law). For that reason, ESGAO shall not engage in any other activities that are not exempt from Federal Income Tax as specified by that Section of the Code or of any future provisions of the United States Internal Revenue Law.  


To maintain focus on the mission and purpose as stated above, ESGAO believes in the ethical treatment of all animals.  Greyhounds love to run.  ESGAO supports ethical and humane racing practices governed by the National Greyhound Association or Greyhound Racing Association of America.
