Award-Winning Tree Promotes Greyhound Adoption

Santa Paws Is Coming to Town

The prettiest greyhound adoption promotion of the year is now on display at the Pink Palace Museum in Memphis. The “promotion” is the greyhound adoption-themed Christmas tree that’s part of the Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees benefiting Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. The show runs Nov. 17 to Dec. 31.

“Santa Paws Is Coming to Town” was the theme of Mid-South Greyhound Adoption’s tree, sponsored by Southland Park Gaming & Racing. Decorators were Adam Loeffel, Deena Loeffel, Sue Arlotta and Vicki Cohen. Their efforts earned second place for the “Most Creative” tree. Better yet, greyhound adoption will be promoted for the entire holiday season.

You can see the MSGAO tree Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The display is open until 9 p.m. on Fridays in December before Christmas (Dec. 7, 14 and 21). Cost is $6 for adults and $5 for seniors and children ages 3 to 12.

My greyhound is the coolest pet because…

Mid-South Greyhound Adoption Option asked our Facebook friends to share their thoughts on why their adopted greyhounds are the coolest pets ever. We hope you enjoy this small sampling of their observations as much as we did! We will share the male viewpoint in the near future.

Kimberly Hadden: He loves me unconditionally!!!

Marsha McGee Chance: He thinks I rescued him, but in reality, he rescued me.

Kathleen M. Fisher: They get me exercising and I don’t even know I am because I am having so much fun I don’t even know I am exercising.

Cynde Vaughn: They are the sweetest most loving dogs EVER!

Terry Johnson: She does not know she is a pet – she thinks she is human! And I am certain she is more highly evolved than we are. She has managed to make us her servants…:-)

Martha Bowman: They let me live with them, they love me no matter what life brings us and they enjoy the simple things in life and can ALWAYS bring a smile to my face even when I would rather scream or cry.

Stay tuned for more reasons why greyhounds are the coolest pets ever!
