Meet & Greets

Want to see some real live greyhounds up close and personal?  This is where they will be all around Northeast Ohio!  Please come out to one of our monthly meet & greet locations and speak with one of our many greyhound owners!

Are you a hound owner?  This is a great way to meet other greyhound families, visit with dogs and get the word out about greyhound adoption!  Also if you are new to this fantastic world of greyhound adoption this is a GREYT way to socialize your greyhound (they will love you for it)!
