Hoe Down for Greyhounds and SPCA Fur Ball

It’s going to be a tough decision, but this Saturday, April 13th, you can choose between two events to support two amazing causes –  the 4th Annual Hoe Down for the Greyhounds to support the Homeward Bound Greyhound Association or the 11th Annual SPCA Fur Ball to support the SPCA Cincinnati!

The Hoe Down for the Greyhounds will be held from 6 PM to 10 PM at Niederman Family Farm in Liberty Township.  A $20 ticket will get you a fun-filled night of food, beverages, dancing, raffles, and a silent auction. This is the major annual fundraiser for Homeward Bound Greyhound Association to raise funds so that they can continue to build knowledge, appreciation, and care of the greyhound breed. HBGA finds homes for retired racing greyhounds, nurses many back to health, and works toward the continued well-being of currently racing greyhounds.

The SPCA Fur Ball will take place from 6 PM to 11:30 PM at the Sharonville Convention Center.  This evening of entertainment includes cocktails, silent auction, dinner, and special  entertainment by the Acme Comedy Company. You will also be given the chance to mingle with some of the SPCA’s adorable cats and dogs who are available for adoption!  Click here for ticket information or call Ashley at (513) 247-2036. Your support of the SPCA will help it continue to improve the quality of life in our community through humane education and animal protection.

Could Freddie be more handsome?!!!

Feature Rescue: Freddie

Our feature rescue this week is one of HBGA’s gorgeous greyhounds. Freddie is an outgoing greyhound who arrived at his foster home in Cincinnati at the end of March. The tail on this beautiful brindle boy never quits wagging!  When I asked Mary Beth with HBGA about her favorite characteristic of this breed, she told me that it is probably how relaxed they tend to be…  ”Although some still enjoy running, a quick turn or tow around the yard is generally enough for them. Then they sack out on their dog beds for several hours! This characteristic makes it possible to find a greyhound to fit almost every living situation. We have placed dogs in apartments and condos where there is no fenced yard and have been very successful.”  Could Freddie or another greyhound find his home with you?
