Maine Greyhound Placement Service (MGPS) was awarded GAPY 2016

Maine Greyhound Placement Service (MGPS) was awarded GAPY 2016

GAPY –Greyhound Adoption Program of Year 2016 is awarded to two organizations annually, one on East Coast and one on the West Coast. American Greyhound Council President Fred Fulchino announced the awards on 1/7/2017. Each organization receives $1000 grand from AGC.

Maine Greyhound Placement Service was founded by Scott Bruns and Mary Towle over 25 years ago. After adopting their own greyhounds their love for the breed lead to volunteering at a local greyhound shelter and eventually the two established their own adoption kennel in Bridgton. The operation relocated to Augusta in 2003 and has space for over 50 dogs. Over 4000 dogs have found their forever homes through MGPS.

Scott replied that the GAPY grant is a welcome source of support for MGPS. “We are very grateful for this unexpected support. Our volunteers work so hard, and they really deserve this special recognition.”
