Want to be my Angel?

alt "Good Morning Angels!"
"Good Morning, Charlie!"
My name is Charlie, and I have a mission for you! Find my perfect Angel! I already have a couple of Angels in Colorado Greyhound Adoption and my wonderful vet, Dr. Stacey. I need to find that final Angel. The one that will give me my forever home.
Just like Charlie on the TV show, I'm a handsome grey-furred senior boy, 11 years young. I like to rule the roost, and I'm particularly fond of women. Just give me a couch and an intercom and I'll be in Heaven!
Apparently, I'm supposed to give you more information about me. I think what I’ve already said sums it up. I'm a pretty awesome boy if I say so myself.
I'm 11. I have the usual things 11 year olds have. I have arthritis in my neck, wrist, and shoulder and I'm on the general pain med cocktail: Tramadol, Rimadyl, and Gabapentin. I also have three corns on my right back foot that are currently being hulled every three weeks.
I give a warning snaps if other pets get in my space personal space, respect your elders, youngins! I don't like to be left alone, and would do well with another senior greyhound. Someone to enjoy my retirement with. I'm also not very fond of young humans, and would be best in a home with teens and up.
My foster describes me as "everything a person could hope for if adopting a senior to love for his golden years."
I know the perfect home is out there for me. So, let's wrap up this episode with a forever home for me and a job well done!

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.
