Education

The more that people learn about the unethical business of greyhound racing, the less likely they are to attend races, which supports an industry that continually exploits and abuses greyhounds. CAGR offers two educational programs to school and community groups of all ages and interests to increase awareness of the realities of greyhound racing.


CAGR Educational Presentations

  • A Lesson in Greyhound – Children

Our children’s program, appropriate for 6 to 12 year-olds, is an interactive and engaging presentation introducing the greyhound breed’s fascinating history and the qualities that have made it an outstanding companion animal for centuries. Children have an opportunity to meet and interact with these impressive animals during the program. This program has been presented at a number of local schools and after school library programs to great response.


  • Running in Circles – Adults

Our adult program, appropriate for ages 13 through adult, introduces the greyhound breed’s long and fascinating history, life as a racing dog and the qualities that have made it an outstanding companion animal for centuries. The program, along with extensive displays, raises awareness of the unparalleled exploitation of this gentle breed and provides an opportunity to meet and interact with these impressive animals. This program has been presented at Rotary, AARP and Chamber of Commerce meetings amongst many other locations.
