Release the Hounds Community Events
We strive to be visible in the community and help people make smart choices when looking to add a new member to their family. Our position is that a well informed person will make the right adoption choice which means a successful and long lasting friendship.
To help our dogs put their best paws forward we have an amazing group of GPAC Ambassadors that perform meet & greets, seminars on dog safety, and attend open houses for businesses. If you would like us to come to your establishment please contact us with the details.
Please see below for a listing of fundraisers, events, and meet and greets GPAC has on the go.
