GPA - Richmond

On Saturday April 29th, one of our members hounds escaped while they were visiting their daughter in Manassas VA. She is a socially challenged little brindle girl named Gracie. There are people searching, printing and posting flyers in that area. We need more Foot Soldiers to help bring this girl home. As recent at last night we had a positive sighting of her. If you can help out in any way, please contact us so we can put you in touch with the people heading up this search..

Thanks.. Gil

GPA - Richmond

April Showers???

On March 25th, we received 9 hounds. All of the hounds were already spoken for but we still had to bathe them and get them ready for their new families. Many thanks to our huge team of volunteers that pitched in to help out. This was another beautiful group of hounds and they did very well. Welcome to all of our new adopters as they join the GPA Family.

We are now processing applications for April, May and June hauls. There are a lot of hounds available at the tracks waiting to come this way..

We are once again participating in Easter on Parade. Dress up your hounds and come on out and participate in the Pet Bonnet Contest.

In May, we will be marching in the Bon Air Victorian Days Parade.. We welcome everyone to come out with their hounds as we walk up Buford Road. I would love to have a bunch of hounds walking with us to show how beautiful and wonderful our pets are..

Also on May 7th, we are having our Spring Picnic. This year there is a little change. The location is going to be at IronBridge Park in Chesterfield County. Please check our calendar for details on this and all of our events.

Thanks to everyone for all that you do to help these wonderful hounds..

February Already???

Its hard to believe that another year is underway. We have another load of hounds arriving February 18th. Also that day we will be participating in the Pet Expo at the Showplace in Mechanicsville. Of course we can always use volunteers to come help out. Please email us if you have some time available that day to bring your hounds out and show them off at our booth. Newsletters have also been mailed out. If you don't receive yours, please let us know. We are still working on getting everyones addresses correct in our database. We are continuing to place 5 or more hounds per month thanks to our wonderful volunteers and great adopters. Once again we welcome everyone to sign up for the GPA Richmond Group email list. This list can help all of us as we travel the journey of being owned by Greyhounds. Feel free to post questions, ask for advice, exchange tips and even petsitting. Also please remember to check our calendar for events. If you have something that you would like for use to participate in, please let us know.
