Meet & Greets

Meet & Greets are a wonderful way to meet Greyhounds up close and to talk to their people about the joys of adopting an ex-racer.

Greyhound Meet & Greets are hosted by GPA-TN volunteers who usually bring their own pets or the greyhounds being fostered.

You are more than welcome to attend a Meet & Greet near you to meet some lovable hounds, scratch a few ears, and gather information about our organization.


Meet us at the Petfest and Blessing on Oct 5th between 1 and 5pm at Grace Lutheran Church in Oak Ridge. Petfest is in its 18th year and is fun for the entire family. ALL PROCEEDS GO TO ANIMAL RESCUE GROUPS. The event includes the silent auction, art contest from Woodland school, children’s activities, bake sale, rummage sale, microchipping and rabies vaccinations, Grace booth, music by Shelter Road, free pet photos and more! The pet blessing is at 4 PM. Pet adoption and fostering opportunities are available.

For more information on Pet Fest, please visit the Pet Fest website.

Schedule Notice for October 2019

We will not be meeting Saturday July 13th but will resume the regular Meet & Greet schedule for November.

Regular Events

We hold regularly scheduled Meet & Greets at Agri-Feed so people interested in adopting or fostering can come out and meet the greyhounds and the volunteers in our organization. This is a fun and convenient way to find out more about our beloved greyhounds and about the adoption process. Please be aware that changes are sometimes necessary.
