With 2022 advancing rapidly, an update on what’s happened over the last year and what we have planned for the remainder of this year is long overdue.
Some of the highlights for 2021 include:
- After working together and supporting each other for 20+ years GFNC and Triangle Greyhound Society merged this past summer under the GFNC banner to pool our resources and volunteer talent.
- Adopting 82 greyhounds between our two groups, with another 10 in our pipeline at year’s end. Including the first greys from the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust since the start of the pandemic.
- Holding a very successful 17th Annual Mountain Hounds Event, in Gatlinburg TN. Thanks in large part to Terry, one of the neighbors near the Sydney James who allowed us to use his backyard because the renovations to Mynatt Park hadn’t been completed.
- We also held Meet & Greets, Roo and Brews, Picnics, Play Days, and took part in Parades across the state.
2022 has been busy so far:
- We’ve adopted over 35 greyhounds already this year, including 10 from the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust, and we have another 12 in the pipeline.
- Planning for our 18th Mountain Hounds, June 2nd thru the 5th, is well underway. Register by May 22, if you haven’t already!
- Watch our FaceBook Page for other events scheduled across the state.
We have an incredible team of volunteers who give their time and energy to keep our books in order, records current, spread the word about greyhound adoption, and events we have planned. They transport greyhounds from WV and across the state and they open their hearts and homes to become foster parents. As an organization, we continue to be financially strong, thanks in large part to your support and donations.
Thank you for all that you do,
President, Greyhound Friends of North Carolina
