Give Time – Queen City Greyhounds

Queen City Greyhounds is comprised entirely of volunteers, and as we expand the activities we do in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, it takes more volunteers willing to staff events, foster dogs, and help place greyhounds into adoptive families. Can you lend a hand?

Meet & Greets QCG can often be seen at local businesses around the Cincinnati Metro Area with adoptable dogs and “ambassador dogs” to introduce the community to the greyhound breed and promote adoptions. These events normally fall on weekends and require a 1 to 3 hour time commitment.
Community Events From festivals to picnics, QCG is often invited to attend special events (as long as we promise to bring a few dogs along.) These events vary in length and location, but we are always in need for volunteers to ensure all needed time slots are filled.
Greyhound Hauls It’s all-hands-on-deck when we bring another group of retired racers up from the track to the Cincinnati area. A “haul” consists of a few individuals transporting the dogs to Cincinnati, and upon arrival, all volunteers help welcome, walk, bathe and acclimate the dogs to their first day of retired life.
Foster Families Fostering is the life-blood of our organization. We are always (always, always, always) in need of more volunteers willing to foster a greyhound until they are ready for adoption. As a foster, you help teach a loving greyhound how to be a family pet, and prepare them for the transition into their “forever home.”
