Greyhound Adoption of Greater Cincinnati is a volunteer organization that promotes responsible adoption of retired racing greyhounds. GAGC hosts or participates in events every month. These events are fun ways to find out about greyhounds and sometimes to meet greyhounds that are available for adoption.

Here are the upcoming events on the GAGC calendar:

GAGC Family Picnic

On May 29 from noon to 4 p.m., come to the GAGC Family Picnic at Keehner Park in West Chester, OH. If you only attend one GAGC event in 2010, be sure this is it! There will be raffles and a silent auction, goodie bags, caricatures, calendar photo voting, and more. Virgil Sweeden and Rebecca Forrest of PawPrintsLife will be there taking portrait photography of dogs and their people.

Directions: From I-75, take the Tylersville Road exit; go east on Tylersville to Cox Road; turn right on Cox to Barrett Road; turn right on Barrett Road, which dead ends (you’ll see a sign for Keehner Park); turn left at the dead end; around the curve you’ll see the park on the left; take the second entrance (driveway) by the log cabin; the picnic will be set up close to the log cabin.

Dog Paddle at Morgan's Canoe

On May 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., come to the Dog Paddle at Morgan’s Canoe, Fort Ancient, OH. This event benefits Cancerfree Kids. GAGC will have a booth. There will be free parking. Families and their dogs will be able to eat lunch, visit exhibitors, participate in fun events including a “Dog Eat Dog” hotdog eating contest, dog fashion show, dog maze and obstacle course, and fetching contest. Win prizes!

    When you adopt a greyhound, you adopt a community.

    Racing greyhounds really are rescued from lives of atrocious confinement, disgusting meat made from 4D meat (from dead, dying, diseased, and downer animals but served raw). Too many racing greyhounds are injured or euthanized.

    To you, greyhounds are your best friends and beloved family members and if they are like mine, they have more fashion accessories than I do.

    To the betting public and the dog tracks, they are disposable instruments to make money.

    Please consider adopting a greyhound and please consider learning about the plight of the racing greyhound and how to end the cruel "sport" of greyhound racing.
