Monthly Walks are held in both Aberdeenshire and Moray and are a great opportunity to meet the hounds and chat to other hound owners. EVERYONE is always welcome! Each June GAGAH also hosts two Great Global Greyhound Walks. In 2017 an incredible 5702 dogs took park across the globe, can it be beaten in 2018? The 2018 GGGW is taking place on Sunday 10th June. GAGAH are excited to be hosting walks in both Aberdeenshire and Moray.

Online Events run in March and during the summer months. An Online Auction is held throughout March via the GAGAH Auction Facebook Page, featuring a fantastic selection of lots including pictures, jewellery, photoshoots, bespoke items and even holidays.

During July and August our Virtual Dog Show takes place, which gives you the opportunity to share amazing pictures of your hounds, but enables us to collect images to use in the GAGAH calendar. Enter via the website, or via the GAGAH Dog Show Facebook Page.

Fundraising Events are crucial if we are to continue to rescue as many Greyhounds and Lurchers as we can. We are always in need of volunteers to help out, whether at a Show, Collection Day or to use your own talents to raise funds! If you are interested in helping, please do email us.

GAGAH Fun Day 2018

Waulkmill Show Centre, Kinharrachie, Ellon AB41 8PS

Click for Directions!

Registration for the Annual Fun Dogshow starts at 11.30am, with the judging starting at 1pm.
You and your hounds can enter as many classes that suit you and at the end of this the 1st and 2nd winners will be entered into the Best in Show class. We have stunning Trophies and Beautiful rosettes to be won. 

We have stalls from our usual supporting friends i.e. SSPCA, CPL, DAWGS, Lovehounds and more… along with the Tombola, On the Day Raffle, The Happy Hound Store and a good few more, including a few surprises!!!!

Our Tombola and Raffle stall is always amazing because of your generosity donating prizes, so we are kindly asking again this year if you can donate any prizes then it would be very much appreciated indeed.

We raised just over £1000 last year just in one day, so I'm hoping this year is a great success as well, all down to your tremendous support and generosity.

We hope you can all make it on the day as it is our way of just saying 'Thank You' to all of you who make all this possible with your continued support and dedication. This will also mark 19 years of helping rescue/rehoming over 1,500 houndies.

More details to follow, but put the date in your diary and we hope to see you and your houndies there!

Great Global Greyhound Walk 2018 

Sunday 10th June 2018 11am 

GAGAH are proud to be hosting two walks for this incredible event which sees greyhounds coming together across the world! In 2017 a total of 5702 hounds attended one of the many organised walks. Will 2018 be even bigger and better?

The Aberdeenshire Walk:

Haddo Country Park, Methlick, Ellon, Aberdeenshire AB41 7EQ

Meet 10.45 for 11am in the field next to the car park.
Parking is by donation.

This is a Greyhound PLUS walk - greyhounds, sighthounds and other breeds from a greyhound family are welcome

Extra information: Any donations to Give a Greyhound a Home are welcome on the day. This is one of our favourite walks, with long and shorter options. Bring a picnic and enjoy the day! Please pick up poo and deposit in the bag we provide rather than filling up the poo bins.

The Moray Walk:

Roseisle Beach, Nr Elgin IV36 2UB

Meet 10.45 for 11am by the toilet block in the car park.
Parking charges: £1 for an hour, £1.50 for upto 3 hours.

This is a Greyhound PLUS walk - greyhounds, sighthounds and other breeds from a greyhound family are welcome

Extra information: Any donations to Give a Greyhound a Home are welcome on the day. This exploration of the pine-clad dunes at Roseisle takes in the best bits of the woods, visits a bird hide, and takes in views of the sea, but also leaves plenty of time to enjoy the beach. The walk takes around 1 1/2 hours. Please ensure all hounds are kept on leads. 

Our army of dedicated fundraisers continually go above and beyond, always coming up with innovative fundraising ideas to keep the money coming in. We have runners, crafters, jugglers; those who have sold sweets, cakes toys and even fish not forgetting the quiz nights, raffles, tombolas and work place collection.

The GAGAH community really are amazing!
