Greyhound Celebration Set in Nashville

Greyhound Pets of America Nashville (GPAN) cordially invites all greyhound adopters  to attend the organization’s annual Greyhound Picnic from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sept. 22 at Centennial Park’s large events shelter.

The free picnic is open to all greyhound adopters and people interested in greyhound adoption who share GPAN’s commitment to finding loving, appropriate, permanent homes for these dogs.

The afternoon will feature a silent auction, sack raffles, food, games, crowning of king and queen and amazing items for sale at GPAN’s booth.

This is a fun family event that brings quite literally  hundreds of greyhounds and their families together each year!  Please come and help us raise money so we can help more hounds.

The pictured flyer also includes the date and basics on GPAN’s Winter Gathering in February so you can mark your calendar. (Click on the image for a larger version.)
