December 2020

Christmas Greyhound

What a year this has been! COVID-19 has impacted nearly every part of our work, from conducting home visits remotely, safely transporting dogs, facilitating adoptions in a socially distanced manner and reducing our ability to host meet and greets and fundraisers.

We have also seen a significant uptick in adoption applications in 2020. We are working as hard as we can to get dogs and prepare them for adoption. Vetting is exponentially more expensive here than in the south. More dogs also require more foster families or, when not available, additional boarding costs.

We know we are not alone in our struggles and recognize that everyone is trying to navigate these unprecedented times as best they can. We are so thankful to our community for continuing to support our mission, whether it is adopting, fostering, donating, advocating, or some combination thereof. Your interest and investment continue to make a measurable difference in our retired racers’ transitions to their forever homes.

If you have the ability to give this year, or have creative ideas about fundraising, we would be extremely grateful for your input and generosity. Please be on the lookout for a holiday auction starting soon! We hope we can count on you to donate, bid and spread the word. If you have the capacity to foster, you can make a tremendous impact in a few short weeks.

Thank you again for your continued commitment to the hounds. On behalf of all of us at CGA, we wish you a safe and healthy holiday season and New Year!


Holiday Hound Auction on Facebook!  Bidding starts on November 28th and the auction is over promptly at 6pm on December 12th.  There are lots of great items to bid on so please check it out!  We really need to raise money to cover our vetting expenses for all of our gorgeous fosters

Meet and Greets

Stop by one of our several meet and greets throughout the month. Our volunteers and their hounds would love the company!
