Join us for our Annual Picnic! Greyhound play area, food, games, nail trims (noon to 2pm $10 per dog), silent auction, raffles (Ginger Bed, Professional Dog First Aid Kit, 50/50) and more!!! Please bring a NEW toy for foster dogs so they have a toy to go home with.  To help out – please email volunteernw@gpa-nw.org to sign up. We need folks to help with tickets, taking turns minding the play area, helping with set up and clean up.If you bring a dessert to share your name will be entered in a drawing for a door prize. It really helps if you bring cash, but we will have a square to accept credit cards.

If you’d like to have your dog play in our play area, please bring their muzzle. Please familiarize yourself with our playdate rules for safety.

Admission for adults including lunch $5

Children 5 and under free

Play Area Rules for Safety

All dogs must wear muzzles in the play area.

All dogs must be accompanied by an adult over 18 in the play area – dogs may not be dropped off and picked up later.

If you need to leave the play area for a short period such as a restroom break, please designate another adult to watch your dog or remove the dog and take them with you.

Senior dogs or shy dogs can play is a smaller fenced area with supervision.

Only greyhounds are allowed in the play area.

Children are allowed in the play area, but must be supervised by an adult over 18 and are the adult’s responsibility – note that a pack of twenty 75 pound dogs running around can knock over most adults and small children might be better outside the fence.

If your dog is scared, anxious or just doesn’t want to play, please remove them from the play area.

Please don’t bring your dog if they are sick or injured.

Water will be provided for dogs – they don’t need to take off their muzzles to drink.

Don’t bring food, treats or toys into the play area – dogs may be resource guarders and not want to share.

Always pick up your dog’s poop – receptacles will be provided.

Keep your leash with you in case you need to quickly grab your dog – don’t hang them on the fence and walk away.

The field is large and you must keep an eye on your dog even if they are far away – avoid using phones and other distractions.

Know your dog’s limitations and when they are ready to leave please take them out of the play area so they don’t get overwhelmed.

Thank you for helping us make a safe and fun playdate for everyone.
