Greyhound Awareness Month - October 2011

Welcome to Greyhound Awareness Month - October 2011

Please join us in honoring the greyhound and its relatives (galgos, lurchers, etc.) throughout the world. We hope to raise the public's awareness of the wonder and magic of greyhounds as pets, educate others on the current status of greyhounds around the world and to honor those greyhounds who have left us already.

Throughout the month, we have many different events planned including Yappy Hour, Rahr Brewery Tasting, many Meet & Greets, the Pup Crawl and Poker Run, and the Blessing of the Hounds, just to name a few!

Gathering in large numbers in public is the best way to get everyone's attention, so let's all join together this year and every year and celebrate the most wonderful, incredible companions on earth - the Greyhounds!
