A Greyt member of the CGA family is putting together a series of art workshops where all proceeds go to the hounds. Each event explores a different art media/product based around a greyhound theme. Make something for you, a friend or just come to have fun and hang out with some cool greyhound friends.

Come create a wearable piece of art or key chain for $25.00 per person. No experience necessary. Materials supplied. Assorted snacks will be provided. Please bring your own beverage or course (wine, soda etc).

St. Patrick's Day Parade

Getting their Green out!

The new year is well under way and our first event is coming up soon. Colorado Greyhound Adoption will kick off their 2017 event season with the Colorado Springs St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, March 11th. 

altFor years, CGA has participated in the St. Patrick's Parade in the Springs. The crowd loves to see the Greys all dressed up in their St. Patty's finery.

CGA parade volunteers met at their staging spot #28 about 30 minutes prior to the start of the parade.  The parade kicks off at noon. The parade route is approximately 2 ½ miles long and typically lasts about 1 ½ hours.  

Visit our facebook and Upcoming Events pages for more information. It is a greyt way to spend time with your grey, other greys, and their folks. The people that come to these events LOVE the greys. Events are like a Meet and Greet on steroids.

Please put this and other upcoming event dates on your calendar and help where you can. It would be greyt if everyone, adopters and fosters, would commit to a couple of events for a few hours. Depending on the event schedule, shifts are 2 to 3 hours. Reminder that all fosters must be vetted before attending events.

Cookies on their Way

Cookie plates are in route to our GREYT vets.

In early December, Colorado Greyhound Adoption volunteers bake yummy cookies and treats.  Then they gather together to assemble all the cookies and treats on plates in holiday wrapping to be delivered to the veterinarians and their staff who donate their services. 

Along with the yummy goodies, each office receives the new "In the Company of Greyhounds" calendar.  It is a great way to wrap up the year and say thanks.

Thanks to our bakers, platers, and "wrapping crew" for your help.  Also, a thank you to Chris and Mike Benedict for opening up their home for this years event.
 

Hello out there! My name is Zita a.k.a. 'Twink'

Please Donate to CGA For Colorado Gives Day, Tues. Dec 6th.

alt

I'm a 3 year old fawn female greyhound weighing in at whopping 46 lbs.
You go it, a pint size greyhound and yes, I'm not intimidated by the boys (30 lbs. heavier). I'm friendly, playful, fun loving, I enjoy warming up my joints laying in the sun, and I like to mouth wrestle with Sean (my best grey pal).

I came to CGA just before my 1st birthday. Shortly after my arrival I had a difficult time getting up and moving. My joints were swollen and very stiff. The diagnosis was IMPA (Immune Mediated Polyarthritis). A month or so later, my coat was disappearing - my thyroid wasn't working right.

My vet, Dr. Adams, put me on herbs, joint supplements/injections to help maintain my joints, flexibility, and immune system. I also got medicine for my thyroid (have to get tested each year). I have had acupuncture, and electro acupuncture, and Traumeel injections to relax muscles as needed.

The staff at my vet's office nicknamed me 'Twinkle Toes' because of the way I walk, but I'm not offended because they love me. I need to be careful about getting any injuries/infections or anything that will affect my immune system. All the meds/supplements make me a high maintenance little girl.

I don't let this get me down and my paws are 'pedal to the metal' most of the time. We greys are special and as the potato chip commercial referred to - 'it's hard to have just one' as many in CGA know to be a fact.
