The adoption group I volunteer for, James River Greyhounds, receives their greyhounds from Birmingham Adoption and Rescue Center located in the Birmingham Race Track (Alabama for those not in the US). So we gathered a few volunteers and drove the 11 hours to the track to volunteer at the kennel, watch the races and pick out a few dogs.
For two days, the kennels workers enjoyed some time off while we scrubbed kennels, cleaned carpets and picked up poo..glamorous, right? But we loved it!!
