Look at that greyhound face!

August 31 – Rally to Remember Missy the Greyhound
Three years ago, a racing greyhound named Missy was senselessly euthanized at Tucson Greyhound Park even though others tried to save her. This incident illuminates everything that is wrong with greyhound racing: Dogs still die. Dogs break their hocks and legs. Dogs suffer serious injuries. Greyhound welfare is not a priority. The rally happens August 31 in midtown Tucson at 4915 E. Speedway (1 block east of Swan), in front of an off-track-betting bar. Join animal advocates and greyhound adopters as we remember Missy from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Signs are available or bring your own. Read about the Tucson greyhound Missy debacle.

Celebrating Mahalo Tucson Greyhound
Mahalo might not have his mug shot on a postage stamp but here’s one better, his riveting face will be on a Visa credit card. The credit card is a fundraiser for GREY2K USA. Every time you use the card, the national greyhound advocacy group committed to ending greyhound racing nationwide receives a small percentage. Sign up for your Mahalo credit card today!

September 11 – Dog Wash Fundraiser/All Breeds Welcome
Get those dirty dogs washed at Arizona Greyhound Rescue’s second summer dog wash held at a new location, this time in the parking lot of PAWS Veterinary Center located at 300 E. River Road.

Calling all breeds of dirty dogs who want to cool off and be cleaned up for a good cause.

Arizona Greyhound Rescue hosts an all breed dog wash on Sunday, June 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the driveway of Pantano Animal Clinic, located at 8333 E. 22nd St., 1 block east of Sarnoff.

C’mon down!  No appointment necessary. Dog wash costs $10, nail trim $10 or $15 for both. Such a deal!

Arizona Greyhound Rescue located in Tucson/Marana takes retired racing greyhounds from the dog track, gets the dogs spayed/neutered and other medical attention, places them into foster homes so they can learn the ropes of home life, and then sends them to forever homes.

Here’s an article about last year’s dog wash.
