If you are a new adopter, or even if you have adopted your hounds years ago, you may be interested in a large event that takes place very close to us! Greyhounds in Gettyburg takes place the last weekend in April and has become one of the largest events on the east coast. There are lots of activities planned and a vendor area where you can buy just about anything for your hound. Registration is now open for this event. Just click on the title of this post to get to the GIG web site where you can register. What is special about this event is that our group will be vending there for the third year in a row! We will post more information as time goes on but we wanted to let you know about this event so you can plan for it. Here is the information posted by the Greyhounds in Gettysburg Planning Committee:

for you, and will also be bringing back some of our favorite events.

Kathy Hoynes-Goree, known for her work under the name of Greyhound

for GIG only. Kathy has also been one of our loyal vendors for many
years, so you may already be familiar with her work. Her website is
listed on our vendor page so go see for yourself how talented she is.

We are really looking forward to 2011, so come one come all, and be a

to tell your friends that we are up and running once again in case
they don’t receive our emails. We don’t want anyone to miss out. And

Society. It is the means by which we are able to raise the funds that
we use to help adoption groups in North Carolina and beyond. So help
us help the hounds, and have a good time doing it. What more can you
