SPECIAL NEWS BULLETIN!!!!!
Back by popular demand! It’s the We Adopt Greyhounds Tag Sale on May 31, 2014. Please think of us while you’re doing your Spring cleaning. Items for donation can be knick-knacks, books, baby clothes, electronic items in working condition, old china, furniture, or whatever is cluttering your house, attic, or garage. The Tag Sale is a major fundraiser for WAG and we hope that you’ll spread the word to your friends and relatives to donate or attend. Tag Sale hours are 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at 15 Old Wolcott Road, Bristol. Those who are donating items can drop them off starting at 7:00 a.m.
Yesterday was a bittersweet day at CRCC; the 3rd class of CT Prison Greyhounds graduated! Mia, Bella, Godfrey and Linus and their handlers did a superb job of demonstrating what they have learned. One of the handlers, Karriem, did a great demonstration on how dogs learn and the proper use of treats, “reward versus bribery”. He taught Annie, a visiting greyhound the “go to place” command, and narrated the steps and methodology. In addition to the usual obedience commands, the greys had an impressive repertoire of tricks; speak, pray and bow among them.
As you’ve read in recent posts, WAG’s expenses are steadily increasing for the greyhounds that we take in. But, you can help us! Do you have a talent for Fundraising? Whether you can fundraise on a large scale for us or even a little bit, you’re a person we need. Can you plan, organize, and carry out an activity such as a walk-a-thon or golf-a-thon-for-greyhounds, host a wine and cheese party, have a tag-sale, rake leaves with a monetary portion donated to WAG, or designate Holiday gifts as ‘donations to WAG’? I’m sure you can think of many ways to help us. Interested? Contact Linda at Linda@weadoptgreyhounds.org.
