They are fun for you and your hound(s). Our events are one of our best ways of getting new adopters for these wonderful hounds, we can always use more volunteers to help.
Please be responsible when out with your greyhound. When your greyhound is at the end of a leash, he/she relies on you for safety. Your greyhound will appreciate your efforts to keep him/her close by your side.
Please join us in helping to spread the word on greyhound adoption. We need help promoting our organization at local events. Can you spare a couple of hours one weekend a month to go to a pet store, a green market or any other location to let people meet your greyhound(s) and give out information on our organization? Check out the events listed below and if interested in volunteering please contact Mary Ann at firstname.lastname@example.org .
For any of the events without specific chairpersons you may sign up with Mary Ann at email@example.com or (954) 579-6069.
