Greyhound Friends Meet & Greet
About this event
Meet volunteers from Greyhound Friends, Inc., which was founded in 1983 and is one of the oldest and largest greyhound rescue and adoption organizations in the United States. More than 9,000 dogs have passed through the doors of their Hopkinton, Massachusetts shelter. On average, it costs $2,000 to move a dog from the track into adoption. Even with cost-cutting efforts, it takes approximately $1,350 per day to run Greyhound Friends' rescue and adoption operations. They are funded entirely through private donations and grants from individuals, trusts, and foundations.
