Boston Greyhound Picture

WAG was recently contacted by an organization in GA about this beautiful senior lady named Boston. Boston is an 11 year old greyhound mix who was recently abandoned. She is a sweet girl who does well with other dogs but should go to a cat-free home for her golden years!

Greyhound Calendar 2022

All fundraising proceeds will go to support WAG’s mission of helping retired racing greyhounds find their forever homes!
Thanks for checking us out, and for your continued support.
If you have any questions on the contest or WAG’s mission, please email us at rori@weadoptgreyhounds.org or find us on Facebook!
