UPCOMING EVENTS & NEWS
CGA would like to thank everyone that came to our Annual Adoption Reunion and Volunteer Thank You Picnic. We had a fantastic turnout with almost 100 people and 40 dogs! The weather was perfect and everyone had a greyt time.
In addition to enjoying the great food and company, everyone was treated to meeting our four newest fosters who were delivered to us at the picnic. We welcomed Kingpin, Black Sabbath, Dancy and Starr. They are all gorgeous and won't last long!
Speaking of treats, make sure to keep Halloween candy out of the reach of your hounds. It takes quite a bit of milk chocolate to harm a dog but only 8 oz of dark chocolate is an emergency. If your dog accidentally ingests chocolate, you can check the Chocolate Toxicity Meter at this link to determine if you need to make a trip to the vet.
Lastly, check out our upcoming fall fundraiser Hoofing It For The Hounds. We also will be at the St James Episcopal Church adoption event and the Portland Fair. Details are below.
Have a Happy and Safe Halloween! Make sure to share pics of your hounds dressed up in their Halloween costumes on our Facebook page CGAGPA.
