UPCOMING EVENTS & NEWS
Corona Virus Update
**An important update from Connecticut Greyhound Adoption regarding the Covid-19 pandemic.**
We are continuing to accept retired greyhounds, especially given the closure of Florida tracks. We are in greyt need of donations to support the vetting, care, and fostering of the newly retired dogs. If you can, please donate through ctgreyhounds.org or our Facebook page.
Well February turned out to be just as busy a month as January! In addition to the arrival of several new foster pups and several adoptions, we welcomed a few new foster homes. With the impending closure of two large tracks in Florida this May we need foster homes now more than ever. The more homes we have available the more dogs we can help get into furever homes. We have also been bringing dogs in directly from farms in Kansas. Some are very young and never made it to the track and some are mamas and dads that are ready for a comfy couch.
If you have ever considered fostering now would be a great time to start! It is incredibly rewarding to help these dogs transition from track and farm life to home life. You can fill out an application on our website at ctgreyhounds.org/foster/
Happy St Patrick's Day!!
