BIRMINGHAM GREYHOUND REUNION
Mark your calendars for November 10th, 11th, and 12th! The Greyhounds are having a HOMECOMING and a Sunday-FUNday!!
Ever wondered what morning schooling looks like? Ever wonder what life in a racing kennel is like? What about seeing your 45mph couch potato race across the finish line? You'll get to experience it!
Friday morning - life as a racing Greyhound - from schooling races to actual races, starting at 7:30am - followed by life in a racing kennel and talking to a few of our trainers.
Saturday - life from racing to Adoption - how do we work with over 30 Greyhound adoption groups across the nation and Canada, placing over 1,200 Greyhounds annually? Come see for yourself! Starting at 7am, we'll let you help with "morning work" all the way through the day! Take a break for the day at lunchtime, then come back Saturday evening for dinner in the skyboxes at 730pm. You'll get to meet more trainers and our wonderful veterinarians and their staff!
Sunday - the real fun begins!! We are inviting adoption groups to come set up a booth to sell at our Sunday Funday Festival, VIP Mobile Vet Clinic will be there for microchipping and more, then starting at 10am - RETURN TO THE RACES! Your Greyhound/s will get to come back to the track to race and you'll get to do it all! Loading up your own hound/s into the starting box, opening the starting box, and seeing your hound/s doing what they love to do the most - RUN! We will have the awesome Bill Fortenberry coming to take photographs of your Greyhounds as they race too!
Most of this event is open for your entire family to come and enjoy. Saturday night dinner in the skybox, as per Alabama rules, no one under 19yrs of age will be permitted. All other functions, children are welcome to come join the fun.
This is an RSVP event - as all visitors to the kennels must be approved through Adoption staff and Security (not on our list? You will NOT be permitted entry. NO day of event add on names will be permitted for the safety of Greyhounds). Dinner in the Skybox will be an RSVP dinner Sunday Funday - OPEN TO ALL AGES, however, racing your Greyhound on the track will be by RSVP. We will allow up to THREE Greyhounds in the same household to run together (bring your kennel muzzles!), no Greyhounds over 8 years of age / Owners discretion, all Greyhounds running will have a quick once-over by a Veterinarian to assure healthy enough. Greyhounds will break out of the starting box and go for a straight run to the "finish line" only - will not be going all the way around the full oval.
