Vet Cookie Plate Gathering
Sunday, December 4th, 2016, noon.
CGA works with dozens of vet offices all over Colorado. These vets donate their services for our foster hounds such as spays/neuters, shots, dental work, and discounts. In an effort to show our appreciation, volunteers get together for a cookie plate gathering.
Please help out!
If you could bake some cookies or make other goodies, bring them to the cookie plate gathering, and prepare to have fun!
If you can't make it to the gathering, but still have time to bake, email Rene at email@example.com and she will find someone close to you who can deliver your cookies to the gathering.

What a Difference a Greyt Heart Makes!
Greyhounds are an amazing, docile, funny, sophisticated, gentle, smart, and lazy breed that will show you what it means to be loved.
There are many wonderful hounds waiting for their forever homes and many people who are equally waiting for their lives to be changed without even knowing it.
Please help us reach our goal of $25,000 on Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2016, Colorado Gives Day!
