Kayden needs a home/foster home!
Kayden is a tall, elegant white and brindle boy who had a long and successful racing career. He is a recent graduate of the CT Prison Greyhounds 8 week training class and knows many commands, such as sit, down, wait, watch me, go to place just to name a few. He also does tricks, such as paw and speak. This beautiful boy’s ideal home would have no other dogs or cats, as he is high prey and a bit dominant with other dogs. He is fine in a “social” situation with other dogs of his size, such as on greyhound walks or events, but likes all the attention from his humans for himself. Kayden can be strong willed, so we would prefer that he be placed with a dog knowledgeable person/family who will remind Kayden that the humans are in charge, and will reinforce all of his excellent training. We think Kayden would be fine with older kids. Won’t you consider giving this handsome and deserving guy a chance?
We are in need, desperate need, of foster homes.
Can anyone help? Please Email fostering@ weadoptgreyhounds.org
Four WAG hounds were delivered to their handlers at Corrigan Radgowski Correctional Center, and were promptly renamed. RWC June, the blue brindle girl will go by the name “June”; RWC January will be called Tyson; UMR Nosey Bill will be known as Leo; and by executive order of Warden Scott Erfe, DKC What will now be tagged as Holyfield (I will leave it to all of you to examine “What’s” pictures to understand the propriety of this moniker.) This is a confident group of dogs; all happily entered the prison tails a’ wagging, not afraid of the new sights and sounds. The hounds seemed to bond quickly to their handlers, which was a wonderful sight to behold. On hand to assist the dog’s on this first leg of their journey were volunteers Joyce Augello, Sandy Callanan, Nick Sweeting, Rori Friedman, Marc Stiller, Sean Embleton, Chris Fanelli, Rick Lukas, Baby Annie and Johanna Lewis. Thanks to Cathy Esposito, the Rogers Family and the Miller Family for fostering Holyfield, June and Leo! Nick has kindly volunteered to visit again tomorrow and will give us a “first night” report after his visit. We can’t wait!
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.

There are many different ways to help WAG!

We also need volunteers to help plan, organize, and help at adoption events, fundraisers, awareness events, etc. To help promote and publicize WAG and greyhounds as pets, or to raise money for WAG and the Yogi Medical Fund.
