Greyt Walkathon (Virtual – Lynnwood Park events cancelled)
Aug 22 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Greyt Walkathon (Virtual - Lynnwood Park events cancelled) @ Lynnwood | Washington | United States

10th Annual Greyt Walkathon is a fundraiser for Greyhound Pets, Inc.

Lynndale park events cancelled

We have been very excited about our upcoming GreytWalk on August 22nd!! It is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we need to raise $50,000 this year to help with all the expenses associated with the incoming dogs and the dogs in our care.

However the COVID-19 virus has thrown a monkey-wrench or two into the works for GPI and most of us and we need to follow the Washington Governor’s mandates. So here is what we have decided to do, because we still need to raise the money.

The activities at Lynndale Park on August 22nd have sadly been cancelled.

Walk & Share

However, on August 22nd, we are encouraging you to take a walk around your neighborhood, a special place, or venture out on a hike.

Make sure to follow social distancing mandates, mask wearing, etc. Take pictures and/or video and post them to your Facebook page (or other social media) or email them to us at [email protected] and we will gladly share them. Use the hashtag #gpigreytwalk in your postings, and share, share, share! We want to see your creative pictures!! If you are so inclined please let us know why you support GPI.

T-shirt & Goodie bag pickup

On August 22nd, we will be setting up a shirt/goodie bag pickup at the kennel in Woodinville between 1 and 3 pm. This will be a “drive-by” event – pull up, remain in your vehicle, and pick up your shirt and goodie bag, then carry on to your socially distanced walk or wherever the afternoon takes you.

Please note that the Hern Greytworks Dog Park will not be open on the 22nd.

Our goal is $50,000

Our event activities have been cancelled, but we still need to reach our fundraising goal of $50,000. So help us help the dogs – REGISTER, DONATE, SPONSOR!!!

Thank you for all you do for the greyt hounds as we could not do this important work without you!

Spa Day!! @ Hern Greyt Works
Sep 26 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Sign up info to come.

We could still use a few more volunteers to help with bathing – please
reply to me directly if you’re interested. No experience required!

We’re doing bath signups through the GPI Store website this time. You now
have the option to prepay, which will help us get people checked in more
quickly on Sunday. You can also still pay in person on the 28th via cash,
check, or credit/debit – just make sure to select that option at checkout.
As always, 100% of the proceeds go towards supporting the hounds in our
kennels. If you have any questions or run into problems with the new
signup process, please let me know.

Walk-ins are always welcome for nail trims, but baths require a
reservation. Please reserve one slot for each hound you’re bringing in for
a bath or the bath & nails package, and plan to arrive during your reserved
time slot. We can’t guarantee that we’ll get to you right when you arrive,
but spreading things out across the afternoon helps us keep things moving.

Bath $25
Nails $15
Package deal $35

The ROOtique will be open so come in and pick up some spring attire for
your hound! Mary Greenleaf will be there with her beds too.

NOTE: Greyhounds & mixes only please! Muzzles are required at Spa Day.
Please bring yours, but if you forget we will have a few loaners on-hand at
the door.

Again, 1:30pm – 3:30pm on dates listed at the Hern Greyt Works kennel
in Woodinville <https://goo.gl/maps/HCnsZfVWpvt>. Please let me know if
you have any questions.

Fall 2019 Low Cost Tick Clinic is around the corner!

IMPORTANT: You must register with payment by October 16 to test your dog.

Our dogs have often lived in more than one geographical area in the US but may also have come from other foreign countries. We have developed specific guidelines for the different groups of dogs based on where they came from. The recommendations are based on data from nationally recognized tick-borne disease authority Dr Cynthia Holland of Protatek Reference Laboratory. Please click to where your dog came from. The tick testing panel will be based on it.
