Virginia here we come!

This Saturday ( May 16th) eight greyhounds will be arriving in Virginia! We look forward to every haul that we pull together but this one is extra special. Four of the greyhounds arriving have waited a very long time for a forever home. They have spent years at a breeding farm after they were retired from racing.

We would like to introduce you to brothers Timmy & Tommy. They will be 7 years old in August. The brothers will be living together in a wonderful home outside of Richmond. Their new family anxiously awaits the arrival of their handsome boys. Michelle will meet Pat, the hauler, in Richmond and do their adoption. She'll take lots of pictures to share with us all.

Next... meet Bold Breeze, better known as Bunny. She will be celebrating her 10th birthday on May 29th. Can you imagine how grand this birthday is going to be for her! She is being adopted by a very loving couple who plan to spoil Bunny everyday!

We also are happy to introduce you to Greyson ( formally known as Doublecross). Greyson just turned 9 in January. He is a perfect little boy. Greyson will have a greyhound sister in his forever home and his new mom is such a nice person. She has been waiting for over 4 weeks for Greyson's homecoming.

Finding fabulous homes for these four senior greyhounds has been a honor for VAGA. We know the senior greyhounds are the gems of the breed. We would like to thank the three kind families that are opening their hearts and homes to these beautiful hounds. You are special people and we wish you all the best.

Of course, we also are very excited to meet the other four greyhounds on this haul. Back Pay, Driven By Alomar, Mulberry Maxine and Beth Speller are all love bugs! They are gorgeous hounds with lots of love to give.

Please keep Pat and all the greyhounds in your thoughts as they make their way north. They will be leaving Orlando Friday evening and will arrive in Virginia very early Saturday morning. Thank you!

We are all so excited about tomorrow! Getting up early won't be hard... actually getting some sleep tonight might be :-) We look forward to meeting all these greyt greyhounds (especially Maxine).
