Cross posted from another thread in General Topics about what Kennel Day is all about, what is done there, etc. Thanks to Rich and Laurel for the summary!
---------------------------------------------------------------
Here's an attempt at a summary about what happens at Kennel Day:

Some dogs in the GPA-WI and another association's program are boarded at a kennel between their days at the track and their foster/forever homes. The kennel owner provides daily care, and a few great GPA volunteers manage to the overall logistics of moving the dogs in/out, documenting, medical work, etc.

On the first and third Saturday mornings of the month, a crew of GPA-WI volunteers arrives. There isn't a formal schedule, so we hope to see enough help each time. Beginning at 9:30 AM a volunteer may assist with GPA-WI dog tasks such as:

* running a healthy dog in the yard
* cat-testing
* brushing, bathing and/or nail-trimming
* escorting dogs to/from the above activities, picture-taking, etc.
* walking a dog from either program
* making notes regarding the personality of a newly-arrived dog

There's good opportunity to network with other volunteers and greyhound lovers; each lap around the perimeter of the fenced yard is about 1000 feet, and a fine time to chat. Adoption representatives may be showing dogs to potential adopters, Kay may be taking those great pictures you see on Petfinder, and dogs may be receiving medication or minor medical attention.

There are some references in the forum to previous kennel days, but the following two links are from a big kennel day in the summer where volunteers from both groups come and all the dogs are taken out simultaneously so more general cleaning and maintenance can occur. These topics include some pictures to help set the scene (there isn't usually this number of people on the 1/3 Saturdays, though).

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4801

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4701

We're willing to assist in connecting people from the Madison area who would like to get together and carpool - just send us a PM.

(If you haven't been to KD lately, the owner now provides a porta-potty - it's clean, and a nice addition!)

See you at the kennel,

Rich & Laurel

PS: If you are interested in volunteering for kennel day, please contact or another board member for more details.

As an addendum to Rich's information:

If you are volunteering for kennel day (ie to walk dogs, etc), there are a couple of things to note.

Children under the age of 16 and your own pets are asked to be left at home. The reason is that this is a working day, and focus needs to be on attending to the adoptable dogs. Anyone who's been down at Emerald can tell you how keyed up the dogs get and they are quite a bit more rambunctious than our hounds at home. For safety reasons, we ask that small children be left at home. In the same regard, your own personal dog should stay home also, so that we can get our work done in a timely manner and get home to spend the rest of the day with our own hounds and children.

The exception to this rule is for families coming to choose dogs from our adoptables. Then we encourage families to bring their children and their dogs for visiting out in the big yard so we can see which adoptable dog is the best fit for your family and everyone can interact prior to making a decision.

We may also have a designated "spa day" which all the dogs will get baths, etc. This is different from kennel clean up day, but we may allow younger kids to participate in a spa day event at some point during the summer months.

In addition, if you are a new volunteer wanting to help walk dogs, etc. its helpful for us to know ahead of time if you are coming. That way we can assign you to an experienced volunteer who had explain how things work, where to find what you need, and mentor you for the day so you have a good understanding of what goes on.

We appreciate all new helpers and encourage people to consider coming down to interact with other volunteers and the kennel dogs. As Rich said, its a great way to network and help at the same time.

Lastly, if you are an approved adopter, in order to come down to a kennel day to meet our adoptable dogs, your adoption rep needs to schedule you into one of our time slots for that particular kennel day so we know you are coming down and can have a volunteer set up to show dogs to you.

THANKS! ;)

I think I would like to try this. Can you give me directions?
I am a newbie to the breed, so I would be one of those people that need to be shown around.
Thank you.

Could I get the address too? I'm not sure if I have it, and we're supposed to pick up a foster dog from there on Saturday!

Bruce will be bringing up our Gala donations on Saturday and will be able to help for a couple hours (we have plans in the early afternoon). He won't let me go by myself :lol 8)

In addition to picking up a foster, Justin and I will be able to help out as needed. We'll be there right away in the AM (after plenty of coffee). Excited to be around the houndies!
