Greyt Hounds Fall Fest aka Prairie Beach will be held at Colby Park in Windsor Heights, Iowa (a suburb of Des Moines, in between West Des Moines and Des Moines) on October 12th, 2014 from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
The City of Windsor Heights has also approved the closing of their city dog park to the public for our private use during the event. MUZZLES WILL BE REQUIRED for your hounds to enter the dog park. Also for the safety of the greyhounds, as well as any smaller dogs that may attend the event, ONLY GREYHOUNDS will be allowed in the dog park.
I am in need of volunteers to help with planning the day. Anyone wanting to volunteer, please email or call me directly-
Thanks, Denise Myers

With the changes coming to the racing industry in Iowa, HGA has made a couple of changes.
First, effective July 1 our adoption fee will be changing. For dogs 0-7 the fee will be $275. For dogs 7 and older the fee will be $200. The application fee will change to $25 and will still be taken off the adoption fee upon adoption. Any applications received prior to July with adoptions completed in July will be grandfathered in with the current fees. Our average vetting expense is closer to $480 per dog.
Secondly, the HGA mission is to adopt out retired racing greyhounds. At this time we will no longer take in greyhound mixes or greyhounds from outside the racing industry. If anyone wishes to discuss this decision feel free to email Jorene at email@example.com.
