Current Events

What's it like at our events? (view photos of our events)

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 Josie at pinero_j@bellsouth.net .  

For any of the events without specific chairpersons you may sign up with Josie at pinero_j@bellsouth.net or (561) 392-7952.

 Channel 25 TV – WPBF – Will be showing a 30 second Public Service Announcement promoting adoption.  They will also make up the tag line for our local group and send it to the other stations to also air – no telling when or how often – but hopefully we’ll get airtime from this beautiful “ad” for Greyhound adoption.
