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.
