UPCOMING EVENTS

Hello Members and Friends of WAG,

We’re taking advantage of a not-so-busy-Special-Event-schedule this month and will be having two Petstore Meet and Greets. Let’s use these opportunities to show off our hounds and promote greyhound adoption!

Foster parents and dogs are especially encouraged to attend.
Meet and Greets are:

NONE

Themed Monthly Hound Walk

Sunday 7/19 ‘An Afternoon Yachting': Glastonbury Riverfront Park & Boathouse, 300 Welles Street, Glastonbury, CT. 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

All hounds on deck! Join us for a stroll around the park and down to the river and boathouse. Yachting attire, of course, is required…. blue, white, sneakers, etc. Let’s have some fun with this theme!

Is this one of your favorite walks? I’ll be taking an advance walk on the trails soon but you can e-mail walking/trail suggestions to me at Linda@weadoptgreyhounds.org.

Best,

Linda Anthes
Administrative Director
We Adopt Greyhounds, Inc.

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.
