Open House

Please save the date and come to MGPS for our Open House and Reunion! We will have LOTS of fun with venders, raffle, auction, animal communicator, fun run, Axell Photography, kennel tours, Greyhound Spa for bath/nails, our new and updated Tally Ho Shop, GREYT food and much more!!

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. The money raised goes directly to the day to day care of the greyhounds. This is an easy and fun way to support MGPS!!

Special Meet and Greet Alert

Friday the 21st from 6-8 PM, after setting up the Open House the crew of Maine Greyhound Placement Service will be eating at The Red Barn in Augusta, ME with our dogs. We would like to invite you to join us. The Red Barn has graciously allowed us to overtake the outside with Greyhounds galore.

This will be a paw-some time to come and meet some REAL Retired Racing dogs while also enjoying the INCREDIBLE food that The Red Barn has to offer

Have you seen a spoon you loved and didn't win? Have an idea but you haven't seen it done yet? Then you need to buy a ticket or 20 for this raffle!! A completely custom spoon, designed by YOU and brought to life by our very own artist!! Tickets are $5 each, 3 for $10 or 7 for $20. We've seen spoons go for a whopping $155 so imagine the "deal" someone is going to get. Plus it's CUSTOM!!! You pick the scene, the color of the grey - all of it. Keep in mind that this may take some time for her to create.

Please send funds through PayPal via Friends/Family to I'm not sure how we'll pick the winner but last time it was by crossbow so it'll be something fun again. Winner will be drawn 6/23, time to be announced. Message me if you have any questions!

Cindy's Update

Hi All!! Just wanted you all to know that I'm doing PAWSOME in my new home! I love my new siblings Charlotte and Gum Drop. The weather is nice so we like to hang outside together. My new Mum Nancy is the best and Daddy-Man even slept downstairs with me because I was kinda lonely and cried. But they got me a new crate for their room and we're all sleeping soundly and best of all...we're together!!! They also have toys galore which I love to bring to my crate. I wish I could get them to get rid of the twirling demon - Mum calls it a "fan" but I'm not one so my word better is better lol Life is really good for me, I'm so lucky! Oh and Mum wants to thank everyone for trusting them with me. She knows I'm special and they're so glad I'm part of their family. I'm really happy too, life is greyt ? Cindy

A huge thank you to Polly Guiles for bringing in another banch of blankets. Every greyhound that goes home gets to have their own blanket and she has been donating them for years.
Thank you so much Polly ? Dawn
