    CANCELLED - CeleGREYtion 2020

    After much discussion and with greyt reluctance, we are cancelling CeleGREYtion 2020, originally scheduled for September 12. This event is ALL about socializing - for the dogs and for our families. Shopping, eating, visiting, bag bids, the radar run and auction - we are not confident that we could host any part of the event while respecting the rules in place for social distancing needed to keep our families safe.

    As this is our major fundraiser of the year, we will be looking to replace the event - perhaps with an on line auction or some other virtual fundraiser. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Adoption outlook for 2020 and beyond

    When COVID forced the closure of some tracks in the US and there were many dogs available, we were unable to bring any in due to the border closure. Now, with Florida tracks set to cease racing by the end of 2020 there are fewer and fewer retired racers available to adoption groups and in subsequent years the numbers will continue to decrease.

    All dog transports from the US are still on hold till further notice. NSGA is NOT currently accepting applictions from new homes for greyhounds and all applications submitted continue to be on HOLD, with little chance that we will have any dogs to place in these homes.

    If you are considering adopting a greyhound or lurcher, please review the information on the site regarding our adoption process. Note that as of September 1, 2018, NSGA will no longer place greyhounds and lurchers in homes with children under 3 years of age.
