St Patrick's Day Greyhound



2022 began as a typical winter in New England weatherwise...pretty much expected and anticipated. What was not so much anticipated was the surge in COVID cases due to the Omicron variant, which once again has impacted life and business "as usual". However, life goes on and we all need to figure out how to navigate safely through this while continuing to live our lives and look forward to fulfilling our goals.


At the direction of the CGA Board of Directors, we are moving forward. Here is an update of our year-to-date activities and our plans for the rest of the year...



  • We welcomed our first two Irish Greyhounds on January 13th at Logan Airport as part of the GPA- Irish Greyhounds to America program...Kango & Buttons. We are scheduled to welcome two more in February!
  • We promoted the "Betty White Challenge" surrounding what would have been her 100th birthday and were successful in raising funds for CGA.


  • We expect to receive another 4 or 5 greyhounds from West Virginia in early February.
  • We are planning an on-line "Flash Auction" of some great items including some very cute tote bags designed and created by one of our youngest volunteers. If you have any items that you would like to donate, please let us know. Stay tuned for more details...
  • Don’t miss the deadline to submit your greyhound photos for a chance to have your pup highlighted in the beautiful 2023 Celebrating Greyhounds calendar.  The deadline is March 1st...more info will follow on how to submit photos.


  • St Patty's Day promotion...we will be featuring our Irish Greyhounds to raise funds to continue bringing Irish Greyhounds here.


  • "The Great Give"...we have been invited for the second year in a row to participate in raising funds for NFP's through the Greater New Haven Foundation. This was a great success for CGA last year and hopefully will be this year as well.


  • We are planning to have an in-person Summer event!


  • Our annual picnic at Camp Sloper...always a fun day to get together with all of our adopters, volunteers and hounds!


  • Plan to attend out annual Chilly Dog the first weekend in December.


We will continue to update our plans and activities. As always... we are seeking new volunteers for foster homes, home visits, transportation, and (optimistically...new Meet & Greet events. We are also in need of foster supplies (coats, crates, dog beds, etc.).


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!!
