Greyhound News and Views

By GPA President, Jim Shofstahl

The GPA National Officers would like to thank all of the chapters who attended or sent their proxy votes to Las Vegas for our annual conference. It was the perfect opportunity for greeting new faces, and for getting much accomplished. We look forward to working with all of the chapters again this year, and are already implementing some of our Director inspired changes, including a GPA National Facebook Page with corresponding news feed on this site. Current GPA Officers are all returning this year, and we continue to strive for new ideas and ways to get the word out about our wonderful greyhounds and to make Greyhound Pets of America even stronger. We appreciate all of our Chapters, and are also proud to announce the expansion of GPA into Canada! We welcome Greyhound Pets of America - Canada into our fold, and look forward to helping Greyhounds become even more prevalent in our neighboring country. Please stay tuned to this website for announcements regarding our next annual conference.



(Greyhound Pets of America was founded in 1987 to find homes for racing greyhounds when their racing careers were finished. Through the support of our volunteers and countless hours that they have given, GPA and its chapters have adopted over 80,000 greyhounds to homes throughout the country.)
