Fundraiser for MGPS

Dog Days

We are having a fundraiser for this beautiful greyhound painting. Tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10. Please send money through PayPal to Onelazygrey@hotmail.com via Friends/Family. Final ticket sales will end at 9/16/18 at 12pm EST. The drawing will be sometime in the afternoon. I want to have fun with this so winner will be drawn by....crossbow!! That's right folks - everyone will be listed on a sheet of paper (multiple "tickets" = multiple names on the paper), it'll be placed on a target (at a distance I can't read and it'll be back side out) and whoever is the closest to the shot will win this gorgeous painting. For more information, please go to the Facebook page The Greyt Spoon Fundraiser for MGPS.

2018 Greyhound Adoption Expo & Puppy Farm Tour

Dog Days
Dog Days

Please join MGPS for a fun day at The Greyhound Adoption Expo & Puppy Farm Tour. Fred is a dog hauler who brings MGPS greyhounds from Florida and Kansas. This event will be held at his puppy farm.

 

Linda Jensen was a great friend to racing and to adoptions--we would not be getting dogs in the northeast if it were not for her dedication to both. She did not see racing and adoptions as "taking sides" but promoting and celebrating the whole life of the racing greyhound--I was honored to be her friend and I learned much about greyhounds, racing and adoptions from her. I know some of you had such a relationship with her as well. This picnic honors her life and helps to keep greyhounds coming to all of us in the northeast on a regular basis. We are fortunate to have Fred, Carlos and our suppliers who work to bring dogs to us--I know that some groups in other areas of the country are not as fortunate and are having real trouble getting greyhounds. Its important to support this picnic to help with all of the expenses involved in transporting our precious cargo with care.

 

Fred has 25 to 30 3 and 4 month old puppies!!! and if we are lucky and the mom delivers on time, we may see newly delivered puppies. We will have a great BBQ, fun run--which was a huge success last year--vendors and naming rights of a very special puppy (more details to follow).

 

Tickets are $15.00 and include the Puppy Tour, Fun Run, great BBQ, vendors and so much more!

 

Any questions can be directed to Linda Lyman at lelyman7@verizon.net

 

Picnic donation is $15 and can be made through PayPal or on the day of the event. PayPal account will come up as "patty.comerford@yahoo.com"

 

Please go to the Facebook page 2018 Greyhound Adoption Expo & Puppy Farm Tour and like to keep updated on the event.
