On the Road
From 1998 thru 2015, Greyhounds that cannot be adopted locally were shipped to other qualified adoption agencies in non-racing states and Canada. GPACF was fortunate to network with many outstanding adoption groups throughout the country. We acquired our first trailer in 1999 and used it continuously traveling the eastern half of the US transporting greyhounds from the Melbourne Greyhound Park. We literally wore the trailer out transporting 400-500 greyhounds a year. In 2002, through the support of the greyhound community, we were able to purchase a new 22-stall trailer. The vehicle enabled us to safely transport and give greyhounds a chance of a happy retirement.
In 2000, we were able acquire a smaller trailer through a Matching Fund Grant from PETsMART Charities. This vehicle was seen on the roads around the Space Coast and delivered greyhounds to North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and Georgia. It was also instrumental in transporting many greyhounds to northern states.
For years we rendered assistance and helped fellow Greyhound Adoption Groups. GPACF renovated, upgraded and maintained transport equipment for Greyhound Pet Adoptions of Daytona Beach.
