Our picnic is still happening today! The rain will be gone by noon and things should be pretty dried out by 2 pm. Please see details below.
To facilitate people interested in possibly owning a Greyhound, we conduct “Meet and Greet” Sessions every month. This gives potential owners the opportunity to meet a number of Greyhounds in one location, and to speak with Greyhound owners who bring their own dogs to the event. Normally we conduct two events each month.
Clermont Meet and Greet
Noon – 3 PM
(This event repeats every month on the first Saturday, unless a holiday intervenes.)

God’s Greyts Greyhound Community Picnic
Sunday, January 29th, 2017
7259 Hiawassee Oak Dr. Orlando FL 32818
All central Florida Greyhounds and their humans are invited to attend. Property is fenced and the greys can run around loose to their heart’s content, while we humans enjoy a pot-luck picnic, games, Chinese raffle and shopping for greyhound supplies. We’ll be doing toe-nail trimming for a donation of any amount.
For sale, we’ll have Greyhound coats, collars, leashes, dog toys, muzzles, car decals, T-shirts, jellies and preserves, heartworm pills, Nexgard and more. Bring cash or your checkbook and stock up on these essential items. We’ll be having an auction, too, with many cool and unusual items for greyhounds and humans. Your purchase will benefit the homeless hounds of God’s Greyts, a FL non-profit greyhound adoption group.
This year, we’ll also be having a “flea market” with hundreds of gently used greyhound and general dog items. If you have anything to donate, please make sure it is clean and marked with a used condition price tag on it (just estimate your best guess, normally about 50% of the original price) and just drop it off on one of the tables marked “Flea Market”.
Only Greyhounds are allowed, (no other breed of dog), and your Greyhound must wear a muzzle, so be sure to bring one for each hound. If you don’t have a muzzle, you may purchase one at the event or possibly borrow an old one, if any are left. Any unmuzzled greys must be kept on leash. Also, you might want to bring a towel or two, so you can hose your dog off before going home. We do have a couple of small lakes on our property and the dogs do sometimes go in for a dip. Do not feed or give treats to your dogs while on property.
This event is Pot-Luck. If you want to dine with us, please bring a covered dish or dessert to share and a serving spoon if your dish requires one. Labeling your serving pieces with your name would be a good idea. Don’t forget to claim your dishes afterward!
God’s Greyts will be providing the beverages and paper/plastic ware. Bring lawn chairs and/or blankets to sit on while we chat and eat or watch the dogs play. Be sure to bring your sunscreen, sunglasses and your camera for some greyt action photo opportunities!
You may unload in the cul de sac near our driveway, then park. Please park in the street, not in our driveway and be prepared to park far away and walk. Please park as close to the curb as possible. Do not block anyone’s driveway or near a stop sign. Be extremely careful coming through the gate, making sure it is securely latched, so you don’t let any dogs out. Come wearing something you don’t mind getting “doggy” and wear sneakers or other sturdy shoes, not your most beautiful high heeled sandals! You may have to park quite far from our driveway, so be prepared to walk.
Again this year, we are asking anyone who is able to bring a bag of Purina Dog Chow (in the green bag…any size!) as a donation and leave it in front of the garage on your way in. God’s Greyts foster dogs will greytly appreciate this!!! Cash donations also greytfully accepted at the picnic or on our home page here on this website.
Looking forward to seeing you!!
