Rascal enjoying the day
It’s all part of the weekend fun for everyone, including those who arrived not only from across the country but from across the pond, as did Chris Titchen, who flew all the way from England to attend.
From Wisconsin were Wayne and Mary Jo Jome with their dog Lexie, and from Kentucky were Linda Wilbert with Romeo, and Paula Berry with Mister. Texan greyhounds Tipp, Lizzie, Vegas and Bella accompanied their respective families.
Helping welcome them to Angels Landing on the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary grounds was co-founder Faith Maloney. She talked about what Best Friends does and its campaigns, all toward a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. She thanked them for doing their part with greyhounds.
"Thank you all for reaching out and bringing an ex-racing greyhound into your homes," Maloney told those gathered for a casual dinner on the grass at Angel’s Landing in a natural outdoor amphitheatre. "If we all do our bit we can make a huge difference for all animals in need."Written by Cathy Scott
