Sadly the day has come that I have to make an announcement regarding GRA Canada's operations. Due to health issues I am not able to continue running the kennel on a long term basis. The dogs and their care have always been priority number one and if I cannot give them the care they deserve, I cannot continue to run the kennel. The volunteers at GRA have always been an amazing help and I am so grateful for everyone's support. Unfortunately I do not have someone who can take over full time operations, however there is something in the works. If we do receive any dogs before closure, they will be available on a first come first served basis. We will continue to accept boarders at the kennel until we cease operations December 31/17. I am thankful for the community's support and hope that the local groups will continue to get together and enjoy the hounds we all love so much. If there are any changes or further notices, they will be announced. Thank you, Heather.

aeiou: adoragrey, I'm one of the hosts! There is a fairly large cohort of Canadians who attend. I'm very much looking forward to my weekend away. We have thoroughly enjoyed attending Oglebay these past years. If you have any questions, feel free to msg me.

adoragrey: That is a great idea!!! I have a 4 yr old greyt boy who also loves to play. And I know there are other greyt parents who would also enjoy it. Please post the date here and I will let you know if I can attend.

lovehounds: Hi! I am new here but over the past year have been reading and viewing everything I can find about greyhounds. Also enjoy seeing people's posts/photos of their beautiful dogs. I am recovering from surgery and once I am well I want very much to adopt! ☺💖

misscarlotta: So happy to see new pups. Wish I could take 1 or more, but I have to keep working 14 hours a day to support my adult children.

pengoowin: I am a newbie when it comes to the breed, are greys good with disabled adults. Are they skittish with wheelchairs?

Heather (& Bruce & KC): Hi pengoowin! It truly depends on the dog and Heather Main would help you identify the right dog for you. I have seen some with their human in a wheelchair. 🙂

padeschamps: I am new here, trying to absorb as much info as possible to see if a greyhound would be right for our family. I've done the puppy phase with the doggies I now own. And I am so interested in the rescue of older dogs to find their new forever homes.

padeschamps: What I am having a hard time finding out, is the cost for the adoption of a greyhound. And what screening process do you have to go through. And how long is the adoption process generally

Heather (& Bruce & KC): Hi Padeschamps! Welcome. Contact Heather Main. Her email and phone number are at the top of this board! These dogs aren't rescues but retired racers who are ready to start home life! Good luck!
