It's been a long winter, but we've finally resumed transports. Today we received three new retired racers: April Ross, Nola Mae, and Canaan Corbetti. All have been adopted. Remember, if you're interested in fostering or adopting, you can apply here on our website at: Volunteer & Adoption Forms. We tend not to get a lot of extra dogs sent up that are not already adopted--in order to do so we need volunteers to foster them in their homes until they get adopted.

Garden Factory in October

posted Oct 8, 2017, 5:34 PM by Erica Erkkila

GAGR has been invited to attend one of the Garden Factory's Fall Family Fun Weekends. We have been holding meet & greets at this location the past few years and receive a lot of exposure for greyhound adoption.

Many people bring their families to the Garden Factory events. There will be food vendors, rides for the kids and specials on fall foliage & interior decorations. You can check them out at

This is a X-pen event and your hound will have to be very comfortable around small children, noise and other animals (birds, other dogs, etc). Because there is so much activity at this event, we request that new owners (having greyhounds less than 6 months), not attend this event. Their hounds are still acclimating to their new surroundings and large events can be over stimulating for them.

If you are interested in representing GAGR at this event with your greyhound, please email (Sue Benedict).
