Greyhound Reunion:

Come out to a beautiful state park in Uxbridge for an afternoon of fun.  Bring your kids and your Greyhounds, or come alone!  There will be vendors with lots of Greyhound merchandise to buy, raffles, a silent auction, games for the dogs, information booths, and food.   Come visit with other Greyhound owners, shop, eat (we’ll have hamburgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs for sale), and just have fun.  We can all share Greyhound stories or learn something new about this great breed. 

 Fundraiser Walk-a-thon – same day, same place!

Please help us make this our biggest fundraiser yet………

We’re again combining our Reunion with our Annual Walk-a-thon.  This is one of our biggest fundraisers so we hope you will all participate.  Right at River Bend Farm there’s a beautiful two-mile walk along the Blackstone River.  All you have to do is start with a Sponsor Sheet and ask friends, family and co-workers to sponsor your walk.  Then you show up with your sponsor sheet and donations, and walk with others along this beautiful river.  (you can walk the 2 miles, or just part of it)  Call the kennel for a sponsor sheet or directions to the park, 508-478-1617.  We’ll have a free t-shirt for all that collect over $75 and a “goodie bag” for donations over $25.  They’ll be special prizes for the top 3 fundraisers which include a $250 gift card to PetSmart and $100 to Walmart. 


11:00 am Walk Check-in begins:   Stop at the registration table to turn in your money. Everyone that walks and collects over $25 receives a goodie-bag full of great prizes for you and your dog. Those turning in pledges over $75 receive a free t-shirt. Call the kennel for a Sponsor Sheet.

12:00 Walk Begins:      Blessing of the Hounds by Pastor Bruce; then we will gather and walk together if you’d like.   (or walk alone for part of it!)   

2:00 Prizes awarded:  Top 3 Pledge Collectors announced:
