Spotlight on Demi

Thanks Everyone. I found my forever home.

Look for the next great spotlight dog coming up soon.

altIt’s hard to be a celebrity – I can relate. My name is Demi.

What do I have in common with the other famous Demis (Demi Moore and Demi Lovato)? I have black hair, so do they. Likewise, I have beautiful brown eyes. I have a sleek body as well. I love shoes too, to boot. (pun intended).

While there are two celebrities named Demi, there’s only one greyhound and that’s yours truly. I’m 8 years old, and like Demi Moore, I look absolutely fantastic for my age, and I’m telling the truth when I say that I’ve had no work done. This slender nose is au naturel. These long legs and tiny waist are a result of good genetics.

But let’s be honest and have a heart-to-heart chat for a minute. The truth is, I don’t know why I haven’t been adopted yet. Some say it’s because of my age. Eight years old is a great age. I’m a retired brood mama, and if you haven’t heard the secret about broods being the best dogs, then you aren’t reading enough tabloids, because we are the BEST DOGS EVER.

I enjoy going on walks, and romping around the backyard. I’m especially experienced at sleeping and I’m an excellent roacher. alt

I do have a shoe fetish, I like to find shoes and bring them to my bed. What girl doesn’t have a shoe fetish?

I’m house-trained and I know how to use a dog door (bet Demi Moore doesn’t know how to do that!).

I don’t like to be alone. In the beginning, I was a bit anxious and I would call out to see if anyone was around, but if I have a friend, I’m fine. So ideally, I’d have another dog in my home and a family that isn’t gone long hours.

I have two small soft bumps back near my hip bones. They don’t bother me. The vet isn’t concerned about them, and if you think every celebrity is absolutely perfect, then you know nothing about photoshop.

I already look and sound like a celebrity, so why don’t you let me be the STAR in your home? I’ll be the best hound you could ever hope for – ask your adoption counselor or contact CGA directly if you are interested in me, Demi!

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.


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.

Would you Help?


It takes a great deal of effort from a large number of people to keep our efforts going and successful.
