    Help Us Spread the Word about Greyhound Adoption!

    Mid-South Greyhound Adoption Option depends on volunteers to help spread the word about the joys

    of sharing life with a retired racer. Among the activities that build awareness about our wonderful

    program are regularly scheduled meet-and-greet events as well as attendance at pet-related

    festivals.

     

    MSGAO often needs volunteers to man (and dog?) our booth at special events throughout the Memphis/Shelby County area as well as eastern Arkansas.

     

    Being a volunteer generally takes about two hours a

    month, if you join the Meet & Greet circuit. Check out the list of regularly scheduled events on the sidebar.

    And if your schedule doesn’t allow a monthly commitment to attend an M&G, please don’t hesitate to drop in occasionally. MSGAO and your dog will thank you!

     

    When you meet and greet you get the opportunity to

    dispel the myths about greyhounds — e.g., they’re hyper, they need a lot of exercise — while your dog gets to spend some time with his pals. An added benefit is seeing the wonder in people’s eyes as they

    discover how gentle and loving greyhounds are.

     

    More Ways to Get Involved

    If you don’t have a lot of spare time to devote to meeting and greeting, there are other ways to give

    back to the program that enriched your life.

    Simply walking your dog spreads the word about greyhound adoption.

     

    Group Walks:  MSGAO adopters occasionally get together for group walks in parks and along the

    greenways that have proliferated in the Memphis area. These “mobile” meet and greets get our dogs

    in public view, where others walking and riding will stop in their tracks to admire these stately pooches.

     

    Special Events:
