We are very excited!! Eleven greyhounds are coming up to Virginia on Saturday, Nov 1st. This is our biggest haul yet this year. Everyone works so hard and this is the reward, seeing the faces of all the greyhounds and knowing how much their lives are going to change.

Whose says your Wedding Day can't be Grey

This is Chelsea Wickline (now Chelsea Rogers) with Whyda! She and Lachlan got married over the summer at the Home and Studio of Gari Melchers in Falmouth, Virginia. Their dogs were guests at the wedding and sat with the rest of the immediate family in the front row.
Congratulations to you both.

Our First "Special Hounds".

As you may have heard by now, VAGA is helping our source kennel, GPA Greater Orlando. At this time there are some empty crates at the kennel. We are taking in a few greyhounds at a time to fill a portion of these crates. VAGA will be covering all expenses for the greyhounds until they are adopted. Details and more information will be provided shortly on our main WEB-PAGE.

Here are pictures of the first four greyhounds that we will be able to help. Looking into their soulful eyes, it's easy to see why we must do all we can to help them find their way into a forever home.

Dog Days In Leesburg

Sunny and clear skies, lots of dogs, nice people.......it was a recipe for a perfect day! VAGA participated in the Dog Days in Leesburg Event on Oct12th. We had such a fun time. Many people stopped by our tent to meet all our wonderful greyhounds. It's always fun sharing information about this special breed. Many people had never met a greyhound before and were very impressed at their calm and polite demeanor. Thanks to everyone who came out and joined in the fun and also MANY thanks to Dianna for pulling this event together for VAGA. You did an awesome job.
