The Club sponsors fundraising events to assist with Greyhound Rescue efforts through the Rescue Committee. The Committee concentrates it’s efforts on the rescue of AKC Greyhounds. All members are required to rescue dogs that they have bred, if notified that such animals are in need of rescue, or face possible expulsion from the club. Anyone knowing of an AKC Greyhound needing the attention of the Rescue Committee, please contact Ms. Swanson.
