Greyhound News and Views

By GPA President, Jim Shofstahl

The GPA National Officers would like to thank everyone who attended our 2015 Annual Business Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, and would encourage all chapters to attend the 2016 meeting in Austin, Texas. GPA Central Texas is doing a lot of hard work to make sure the event is a success. We would like to take this time to thank their chapter for pulling this all together for us, and we look forward to seeing all of you there!



(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.)
