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 7pm. 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 1pm - 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!
