VOLUNTEER WITH GPA MN
As an all-volunteer organization, GPA MN relies heavily on the contribution of our volunteer’s time and talents as a means of direct support for our organization.
Even if you do not have a greyhound in your life, we welcome your participation with our organization!
There are many different ways you can help GPA MN beyond adopting and donating money. In fact, the gift of time is often just as valuable as financial contributions. If you are a member (previous GPA adopter) volunteering is also a great way to maintain your voting membership rights within the organization.
If you would like to contribute your time and talents to GPA MN, please visit the pages within the Help the Hounds drop-down menu for information on specific opportunities. If you have questions or would like to discuss volunteering with GPA, please contact our volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are several special events through the year the GPA MN participates in or hosts. Events such as Greyfest, MN Renaissance festival, an Arts & Crafts Fair, the Heal a Hound Dinner, a booth at the State Fair, and other events help GPA raise funds and awareness to keep the organization going.
If soliciting donations, organizing schedules, or even set-up and clean up is your specialty, please keep us in mind for these events! Check out our Calendar and Happenings pages for upcoming events.
GPA MN hosts several meet and greets every weekend all around the Twin Cities. Meet and Greets give the public a great chance to see what great pets greyhounds make, give the greyhounds a great chance to socialize, and are a nice way to get together with other greyhound folks.
Meet & Greets give people a chance to meet greyhounds in person and ask questions to real greyhound owners and many times, these meetings plant the seed of greyhound adoption in their heads. While there are meet & greets nearly every weekend, even if you could participate in one a month, any and all help is appreciated!
Whether you want to team up with a current Meet & Greet host or might know of a new area we could host Meet & Greets, we'd love to hear from you!! email@example.com
