  Keystone Greyhounds 11th Annual Picnic

Cancelled due to weather!

We are cancelling the picnic scheduled for Saturday, October 3 due to weather.  


The weather forecast  for Saturday is predicting cold temperatures, rain, and wind. We feel these conditions would certainly put a damper on our enjoyment of the picnic.  We would not want you to bring your dogs out in these conditions even though we are covered with a pavilion. The rain and wind would prevent us from carrying out a number of planned activities.  


Those of you who registered for the picnic and paid the $10 will be contacted in person tomorrow about a refund.  Those of you who ordered T shirts, we’ll mail them to you.   


We are going to extend the deadline for the Quilt Raffle for a week until October 11th.  Those of you who planned to buy tickets at the picnic, can get them by clicking here and mail them to us, 1406 Harcourt Drive, Harrisburg, PA  17110  


Also, if you like to help Keystone with a contribution, we are doing the Grateful Dog Walk on City Island on October 11.  You can sponsor us by going to:  

Scroll down the page for additional details.


We are going to reschedule the picnic for May of 2016.  Watch for details this winter.  We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you in May!

We are going to walk in CPAA's Grateful Dog Walk on October11th to raise money for Keystone for senior and special needs greyhounds.  This cause in dear to us and we would really appreciate it if you could help out by making a donation.

Keystone Greyhounds is a Greyhound Adoption group centered in Harrisburg which serves Central Pennsylvania from Maryland to New York. We are devoted to finding quality adoptive homes for retired racing greyhounds. We have served this area since 2004 and to date have found homes for over 890 greys.

Although most of our adoptions are dogs just off the track, ranging in age from 2 to 5 years old, there are some greyhounds which are more difficult to place- especially Senior hounds 8 years and older and those with Special Needs. We feel strongly that all greyhounds deserve a 'forever' home, so Keystone Greyhounds has made a commitment that 20% of our annual adoptions will be these senior and special dogs. In order to accomplish this goal, we waive our adoption fee of $250 for seniors and help with the medical expenses for special dogs.This walk will fund these efforts to find homes for these greyhounds.

Please contribute so Seniors and Special Dogs can experience a well deserved FOREVER HOME by clicking on this link:   Support Keystone Greyhounds!

Donating through this website is easy, fast and secure and is a simple way to support our fundraising efforts for Keystone. If not, please send a check and we’ll add your name to our list of contributors. Checks should be made out to “Keystone Greyhounds" and mailed to: Jim Shadle / Keystone Greyhounds 1406 Harcourt Drive Harrisburg, PA 17110.

Thanks in advance for helping us continue to help Senior and Special Greys!!!
The 2015 Keystone Walking Team:  Jim and Dianne Shadle, Andrea Lambert and Sally Jo String Wilson.
