GREYT FEST 2021 - NEW DATE - OCT 23, 2021 - 10a - 5p

New format including more of a "fest" with outside and indoor vendors. Don't worry we will have a safe and dedicated place for our sighthounds within Floral Hall. Outside: Blessing of the Hounds at noon, Tunes with Trent - live music till 1:30. Inside Floral Hall - photograher for hounds (and humans) all day, speaker at 2 pm, Paw Draw, Raffles, more vendors and Sighthound Sanctuary (to allow the sighthounds a area to take a break).

Please come and enjoy a fun time with your sighthounds and cooler fall weather.  Hopefully. the changing leaf colors will look greyt with your hounds.

We will follow CDC and Kentucky Covid-19 restrictions in place at that time.

We hope to see all the hounds and humans we missed seeing in person in 2020. We have been honored to have hounds and humans from IL, IN, MO, NC, NY, OH, SC, TN, TX,  WI, WV, and of course KY. It is greyt seeing old friends and making new ones. Hopefully 2021 will give us all a chance to enjoy another live Greyt Fest...our 5th Greyt Fest.

  • GREYHOUNDS NEED HOMES!

    Greyhounds need homes. Contact us if you have an interest in adopting a Retired Racing Greyhound. Email KyGreyhounds@yahoo.com or call/text 502-536-7594 Also check out our Facebook page (link on the left for KyGreyhounds page or KyGreyhound Friends group).

    Do you want to be a foster parent or a permanent parent to a retired racing greyhound? We can talk to you about the joys and tears of fostering. Spoiler alert: it is worth it. Other greyhound adoption groups are looking for foster families. KyG can put you in contact.

    We have prior foster families that are willing to discuss the joys of fostering: teaching a track dog "regular" life, meeting new people, basic commands, and yes the rewards (and sadness) of knowing a job well done when it is time for the greyhound to go to their permanent home. Some did it for your hound... can't you do it for another? 

    If you cannot find the time and room in your home please consider making a donation. The "Donate Now" paw print can lead you to make donations through our PayPal account using KyGreyhounds@yahoo.com for the email, checks can be mailed too. Visit our Facebook page - KyGreyhounds or our group KyGreyhounds Friends for more information. Do not be confused with the PayPal path as Kentucky Greyhounds Placement is a dba of Pet Action Leauge. All donations go to support greyhounds in their quest for homes. Thank you. It's for the hounds!
