Flight to San Diego, California

On June 9, 2000, Wings For Greyhounds began flying retired racers to a new adoption group located in San Diego, California. Baby and Zorro made the inaugural trip to The Greyhound Connection. The pair were accompanied on the flight by Mission Commander Lanky Lance, and WFG crew Maggie and Mark.

The mission was much more than just flying two wonderful dogs - the local media coverage of our arrival lead to many phone calls to The Greyhound Connection, which in turn helped find homes for many more retired racers.

This trip is dedicated to Gretchen Wyler and The Ark Trust, Inc. for all their help in supporting greyhound rescue.
