Volunteers from Greyt Angels Adoption Program and All-Star Greyhounds held the “Greyhounds in the Park” event Wednesday night. The event took place at Franke Park as a part of the Three Rivers Festival.
Attendees were able to meet retired racing Greyhounds, and Greyhound mixes called Lurchers. Organizers of the event say they wanted to dispel any misconceptions people have about the dogs and show what wonderful family members the dogs can make.
People were also able to learn about Greyhound adoption.
