April is Adopt a Greyhound Month!!! Come meet some great Greyhounds & the Ladies of Bangor Roller Derby.
Bangor Roller Derby will be joining the Greyhounds! There will be a photo shoot with our illustrious athletes, both canine and human. They both know what it takes to speed their way around the track. Bangor Derby will be raffling off two tickets to their home bout against Fog City (Can.), hard hitting flat track roller derby on April 27th!! All proceeds of the raffle go to Maine Greyhound Placement Service. Bangor Roller Derby is very proud to be hosting this with us and spreading the word on getting our four legged friends wonderful homes!
Maine Greyhound Placement Service is a humane, non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving, responsible homes for retired racing Greyhounds that can no longer compete on the racetrack. MGPS is operated by volunteers and depends on fund raising for its operating expenses.
Greyhounds placed through MGPS are usually between the ages of two and five years old. These retired racers are very intelligent, adaptable dogs who fit easily into their new homes following a brief adjustment period.
