Events   (For the Year 2014)

This page was updated by Cathy Munro on February 18, 2014

Every year, our volunteers organize a grand social meet in each region to bring volunteers and adopters together for a day of interaction and swapping "greyt" tales. We also welcome interested adopters to visit any one of these events to learn more about what the organization does, and to hear first hand feedback from our adopters about their experience of joy and love with the greyhounds and how it changed their lives.

Since such events are organized in a large scale, we always appreciate any extra helping hand with the running of such a gathering. Donations in cash or items are welcomed to help us with the expenses and to raise funds at these events. If you're interested in volunteering or donating, please contact the person or persons listed below.

Detailed information will be provided as the date gets closer to each event. (Note: An event may be cancelled due to lack of participation or interest.)  Please check back here often for the latest updates. For our meet and greet schedule, please see our Calendar.
