Join Us for Greyhound Picnic 2018 at The Farm at Natchez Trace

1-4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 16

The Farm at Natchez Trace Pet Resort

9479 Hwy. 96, Franklin

Greyhound owners & folks interested in adoption are welcome. Once you arrive at the Farm, follow the GPAN signs.


$5 per person

Fun on the Farm:

  • A huge, fenced outdoor play area & splash pad for the hounds. Remember: Bring muzzles so hounds can be off leash.
  • Air-conditioned indoor arena for humans and hounds.
  • Shop for coats, PJs, collars & more plus nail trims - $5 per dog.
  • It's a potluck lunch, so bring KFC, sub sandwiches, deli trays & bread or side dishes, fruit & desserts to share. We'll bring the beverages.

You can make the picnic a success by volunteering to help. Contact Kathy Jackson to sign up for the auction, set up/teardown, sign-in table and more. All proceeds from the picnic support greyhound adoption.

This is a sight-only event. Please leave other-breed dogs at home.

Dogs adopted through GPA/Nashville have had the following services:
  • Spay/neuter
  • Dental cleaning*
  • Heartworm testing
  • CBC blood panel testing for anomalies such as tick-born illness
  • Deworming
  • Nail trimming
  • Current rabies and DHPPL vaccinations
  • 3-9 weeks of fostering in the homes of experienced foster families**

Each dog comes with:
  • 6 months of heartworm preventative
  • Microchip for identification
  • Star ID tag with 1-800 number call service
  • Martingale collar and leash
  • Racing muzzle
  • At least a week's worth of dog food
  • Adoption packet containing valuable resources such as coupons and publications that will help you better understand your greyhound's unique needs while also assist you in helping your dog adjust to his new life as a pet
  • Support of the largest greyhound adoption community in Nashville

*Senior dogs that have been returned may not have dental cleaning done if the vet determines anesthesia is risky for the hound.

**%98 of GPA/Nashville dogs have been learning home skills in foster care for 3 weeks or more. Our 15+ years of experience in greyhound adoption has demonstrated that the dogs are best served by moving to their permanent homes when they are ready. This ensures that they form strong emotional bonds with their adoptive families rather than with foster families. However, every dog is different. Those that need more time in foster care get it.
