Rest assured, our mission hasn't changed. We are still working hard to place retired racing greyhounds from Florida in their forever homes! We will continue to have our normal meet and greets and local events. We have just chosen to go in this new and exciting direction! We hope to see you and your hounds in the future! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. If you have adopted from us in the past, your emergency line and support group still exists. If you would like to adopt from us in the future, please contact us soon!
Above all else, hug your hounds!

First up was a greyt walk around Colonial Williamsburg for the last Holiday Market of the season. It was a little chilly out but that didn’t stop the hounds from enjoying the scenery and showing everyone out and about what great pets greyhounds make!
Sammy stops to check out the Colonial architechture
Meeting & Greeting
Group Photo Op
Later on that afternoon, a gaggle of greyhounds could be found at Stony Point Fashion Park for our monthly gathering there.
Cali, Dana, Jewel, & Jackson are ready for some Holiday window shopping!

The day was tons of fun for everyone in attendance- a costume contest, radar run, fun run, games, shopping, memorial ceremony, socializing, and of course eating were just a few highlights of the day.
Pictures are worth a thousand words so we hope you enjoy the sights below. Thanks again to everyone who made the day a success! We look forward to seeing you all out and about at events in the future!
group photo opportunity!
enjoying the company of friends and some beautiful fall foliage
Cali & Henry are clearly not interested in anything President Mark Lane has to say
The hounds enjoy a good fun run
Others opt for the more intense radar run! How fast can you go?!?!
Since it is the halloween season, a costume contest seemed only fitting
Here we have a gallant knight with his pretty princesses
our spookiest competitor... Becky, a devil skeleton
Other greyt attendees
At the end of the day there were a lot of pooped out puppers!
It was sad to say goodbye but we know the next greyt event is right around the corner! Hope to see you and your hounds there!

Bob's Rob Lea- a 3 year old cat tolerant male. he is doing great in his foster home! He loves to play with the other hounds, is very inquisitive and loves to be touching someone at all times. He is very gentle and should do well in all situations.
BBR Gitsum is a 4 year old cat tolerant female who is super sweet and does great with children. She had a small accident on the way up from Florida and has an injury to both front paws, but as soon as that is healed she will be as good as new!
We also have Jet in foster care who is a 10 year old not cat tolerant male. He is doing great in his foster home. he has a history of seizures but is on medication to help with this issue. He is a very sweet boy. If you have room in your heart and home to adopt a senior, please let us know.If you are interested in these or any other hound, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
And join us at the Metro Space Gallery on October 2nd! there is an artist who paints greyhounds and we have been asked to attend to show off our wonderful hounds! Check the website www.greyhoundsvirginia.com for more information.

But this past Saturday, a group of GPA-Richmond volunteers gathered to put on our first annual yard sale! Members donated tons of great stuff! And after a morning of selling, we turned a great profit to help bring more greyhounds up from Florida. Thanks to everyone who volunteered and/or donated items!
It was a long day for people and dogs, but it was worth it!
GPA-Richmond also received four newly retired hounds this weekend. All four went straight in to their forever home!
Taking the Lead-
Judy Lee Walker
Check our our available hounds on the website for more information about our current fosters. And don't forget to check the events calender often! We have great events all summer long for you and your hound!
