July Events
It's July already and that brings a slew of CGA events!!  It also brings about fireworks, the bane of many greyhounds existence.  If you are out walking with your grey, make sure those collars are adjusted properly and any fenced in areas, make sure those gates are closed.  A spooked greyhound can cover a lot of distance FAST!  

Our first event of July is Saturday, July 9, at the Clinton Petco, from 1 pm to 3 pm.  The following Saturday, July 16, you can find us in the Manchester Petco on Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm, and the Westbrook PetSense from 10 am to 2 pm, also on Saturday.  There will be a boat show and food truck festival in Westbrook as well!

The following Sunday, July 17, we'll be at the Petco in Southington from 11 am to 1 pm, the Petco in Avon from 1 pm to 3 pm and the Pet Supplies Plus in West Hartford from Noon until 2 pm.

Finally on Saturday, July 30, we'll be in Bozrah at the Arts and Wellness Fair at Meiklem Kiln Works/Centerspace Wellness Studio. The fair will have over 50 vendors offering handmade, locally grown and artisanal products, as well as yoga classes and a scavenger hunt! Stop by CGA's booth and hang out with some gorgeous hounds and check out the fair. Check out their website at for more information
