Unusual Things You Can See in Kanab, Utah. The Greyhound Gathering!

Published on May 6, 2019 by sherene@mystarvr.com

The Greyhound Gathering in Kanab is a favorite! We don't own a Greyhound but love to mingle with these mellow dogs and their wonderful owners. Many of the dogs are rescued from the racing circuit and are affectionately called "The 60 mile per hour couch potatoes". Yes, these dogs are fast! But they really prefer to lounge on the sofa. This year's gathering is called Sighthound Shivoo.

WANT TO KNOW MORE: Greyhound Gang, is a 501 c3 organization since 1995. Their initial mission was front line rescue work – rescuing, rehabilitating and finding homes for greyhounds no longer wanted by their breeders.
They have transitioned more to a fundraising and educational organization. Their main assistance is now the creation and sustaining of "Almost Home for Hounds" since 2004.
Greyhound Gang’s web site provides education and information about adoption, behaviors, medical and daily care.
