October 2017 

The cooler weather has finally hit us.  That means it's time for apple and pumpkin picking, trick or treating and local fairs!  Speaking of which, CGA will once again have a booth at the Portland Agricultural Fair in Portland, CT.  Held at the Exchange Club grounds on Rte 17A, the fair has tons of fun activities for the family.  CGA will be there on the final day, October 8th from 11am until 3pm.  From tractor pulls to baking contests, to a mud run, petting zoo, pony rides and a midway...this fair has it all!  Stop by with your hounds and hang out with us.  We always have a blast at this event.


Another special event this month is at St James Episcopal Church, 2584 Main Street, Glastonbury.  A special adoption event
is being held on October 14th from 11am until 3pm.  We need people to help out at our booth so please reach out to Fran at if you are able to take a shift.  Our main purpose is to get exposure for the breed and to educate people on what greyt pets they make!


On a more serious note, trick or treating with your pet can be fun but you need to be properly prepared.  Here are some tips to safely trick or treat with your furry friend.

It was another great month for CGA hounds.  On September 9th six gorgeous hounds traveled here from West Virginia and a week later we brought one up from Alabama.  Aubrey, Gunner, Irie, Shamu, Scooter, Piper and Dora joined Boomer, Hero and Legend in the foster gallery.  As of today 4 of them are in their forever homes and 2 are pending adoption tomorrow and one is in the Connecticut Prison Greyhounds program and pending adoption when she graduates.

Our four lucky hounds so far this month are:
