Alert - Fosters Needed!

GPA will likely have several hauls coming in between now and May 31st, when all dogs will need to have been moved out of the kennels at the Iowa Greyhound Park after racing ends there permanently on the weekend of May 14th & 15th. This is likely going to be the last large supply of hounds available to us for the foreseeable future, so in order to bring in as many dogs as possible in this last push we are going to need foster homes. Please, if you are able to open your home to a foster this is the time to do so. For information visit our foster page, or email our foster coordinator with questions. Remember, someone fostered your beloved hound, please consider paying that forward now.

Cover5.jpgGet Your Dog in a Book
Sessions Available Now Through September 2022
GPA is partnering with Tangerine House of Design as a beneficiary of their Tails of MSP project.
You can have your pet's photo and story published in a beautiful hardcover coffee table book, with proceeds from the sessions and book sales coming to GPA and three other rescue/adoption groups. Sessions are limited to 100 total, and will be scheduled between February and September, with GPA receiving the proceeds from sessions booked in April and September. The book will be published in fall 2022, just in time for holiday gift-giving.

The session fee is just $250, which includes your session, a copy of the book (retails for $95), a 10X7 print of your book image, and a donation to one of the participating groups. More details are available at Help GPA and get a beautiful photo of your dog(s) by booking your session in April or September!
You don't need to have a greyhound to participate. Friends of GPA can book sessions with their dogs and support GPA and get their dog in a book, too!
