PetSmart event to find homes for greyhounds

WILLISTON Greyhound Rescue of Vermont will hold an Adopt- A -Thon Saturday, Sept. 27, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at PetSmart in Williston. Greyhounds will be on site, plus pictures and information will be on hand for many other dogs ready for adoption. PetSmart is located off I-89 at Exit 12. Guests are invited to spend time visiting and walking the dogs, and getting to know the breed a little better. Adoption applications will be available as well as additional information on the adoption process. Greyhounds make great pets. They are affectionate, gentle, well mannered, and adapt exceptionally well to the home environment. They deserve a chance to enjoy life with a companion or family. Thousands of greyhounds are raced at tracks around the country. These dogs are often retired from racing and have nowhere to go. Fast Friends of New Hampshire, who has taken in more than 100 of these retired racers, seeks forever homes for these dogs. Greyhound Rescue of Vermont works closely with Fast Friends to provide blankets, toys, and food for the retired racers. A number of these dogs have been placed here in Vermont, Canada, and New York. Greyhound Rescue of Vermont and Fast Friends of NH are 501(c)(3) non profit organizations. The Fast Friends kennel is located on the grounds of Hinsdale Greyhound Park, Route 119 in Hinsdale, N.H. There are currently 115 greyhounds being cared for at the kennel. Greyhound Rescue of Vermont has been operating in Chittenden County since 1990. Greyhounds come in all shapes and sizes, male and female with a variety of colors. All dogs are spade\Neutered, up to date with vaccinations, and have had dental cleaning prior to being adopted. For more information call Sandra Farrell at 802-878-4844 or Sharron Thomas at 603-398-2300. Information is also available at www.helpinggreyhounds.org .
