UPCOMING EVENTS & NEWS


  

November 2017 

Thanksgiving is just ahead and all of us at CGA would like to express our sincerest appreciation to our wonderful volunteers. Without our foster homes, meet and greet leaders, meet and greet attendees, event volunteers, home visitors, sponsors and donors, we could not possibly continue our mission to find homes for as many retired greyhounds as possible.
You are the lifeblood of this organization and we cannot thank you enough. HAPPY THANKSGIVING from all of us!!!!!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

                    SAVE THE DATE!!!!!!!!


Our 8th Annual Chilly Dog Walkathon fundraiser will be held on December 2nd from 11am until 1pm.  Dress up your hounds for the holiday and join us as we parade around The Promenade Shops At Evergreen Walk in South Windsor, CT.
