Happy New Year Picture



All of us at CGA want to wish our volunteers and supporters a Happy New Year and thank you for your continued support. Without you all we would not be able to do what we do!


·    First...A recap of 2021 adoptions...We placed 70 greyhounds in their forever homes. Given that we were all dealing with many obstacles during the year due to the pandemic...this is something that we are happy for and grateful to all of our dedicated volunteers and donors! Most of our greyhounds came from West Virginia with the assistance of Christine Johnson...who we owe a debt of gratitude!


·    Second...2021 fundraising...Traditional in-person fundraising was pretty much put on hold. Fortunately, our participation in "The Great Give" and the unbelievable generosity of our supporters helped us cover a lot of our costs...many thanks!



·    Very Exciting News! We are excited to announce that CGA has committed to be a part of "Irish Greyhounds to America" program and is partnering with 3 New England groups with dogs arriving at Logan in Boston in January and February. To date...we have committed to take 4 Irish Greys...two in January and two in February. These dogs come fully vetted and profiled. Stay tuned to learn about these dogs!

·    We are also planning to continue to get dogs from West Virginia...the next group may be as early as late January...again...stay tuned and visit our website for updates.


The challenges that we face are on two fronts: Financial and Volunteers

·    Financial: While we are gearing up our fundraising efforts, we anticipate that in-person events will continue to be limited based on recent outbreaks of the virus. Hopefully this will change...but we need to assume that 2022 will mirror the last 2 years and plan accordingly. The cost to CGA for Irish dogs is $950 and we continue to experience higher costs of vetting for our US dogs...we are therefore increasing our adoption fee to $750 for applications received effective January 1st.

·    Volunteers: All of our volunteers and supporters are CGA. Our first need is Foster Homes. Without homes, we cannot commit to taking dogs. Second...we need people who are willing to do Home Visits for people who have submitted applications for both foster homes and potential adopters. Third...we are seeking volunteers that are willing to do such things as transport dogs and move supplies from one foster home to the next, as well as lead various Meet & Greet events and one-time event opportunities.


Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy 2022!


Covid 19 continues to impact our ability to have any in person fundraising events.  As a result, our funds are getting dangerously low.  If you can make a donation we would appreciate it very much. Thank you!!
