SCG HELPS THE HOUNDS IN CHARLESTON, WVA

Faithful volunteers and supporters helped the hounds at Charleston, WVA race track by donating gallon jugs of fresh water. 

The recent chemical spill near Charleston, WVA directly affected the Tri-State Charleston Greyhound Race Track.  Water had to be trucked to the race track by tankers while the water ban was in effect.  SCG volunteers Cindy Callaghan and Katy Zorich took the water to the adoption kennel for the hounds waiting to be adopted.  Thank you to everyone who donated to this worthy cause.
