EverythingDogBlog #145 Features the Upcoming Greyhound Rescue Conference
Is there a greyhound in your life? If so, or if you are involved in dog rescue or even if you are just interested, come to Pittsburgh in June!
Three rivers meet in Pittsburgh. . . .the Ohio, the Monongahela and the Alleghany. Greyhound Pets of America (GPA), the national greyhound rescue group, will be meeting (see logo above right) from June 20th through the 22nd in Pittsburgh, as well, for their annual greyhound rescue conference, hosted by the Three Rivers Greyhound Rescue (see logo below).
About the Logo
Three Rivers Rescue recently told EverythingDogBlog, “We wanted to highlight the Pittsburgh skyline in our logo. Kent Roberts*, a well-known greyhound artist who designed the logos and shirts for Greyhounds in Gettysburg (an annual reunion of over a thousand Greys and their people), designed our fantastic conference logo. He used our group's colors as a base and also designed our phenomenal Three Rivers logo!”
The 2014 North American Greyhound Adoption Conference (NAGAC) is being held at the Sheraton Inn, Station Square, in Pittsburgh. This event is open to ALL greyhound adoption groups and greyhound lovers across North America! Speakers will cover a wide variety of greyhound topics. In addition, you will find delightful items to purchase, an unforgettable riverboat cruise and banquet** to remember, and plenty of greyhound stories to be told by all.
For more information, please visithttp://gpathreeriversgreyhounds.org/NAGAC.html or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration forms for the conference and a link for hotel registrations are available on the website. Three Rivers Greyhounds look forward to seeing you this summer!
**The banquet will be held on The Gateway Clipper riverboat - a 3-hour dinner/dance cruise while sightseeing up and down the beautiful Three Rivers in Pittsburgh!
