Hard to believe, but in a few short weeks we will be starting our 13th event. Would you like to order the t-shirt? Do so now as the cut-off is Thursday Feb 11. The printer needs time and has given us this deadline. Don't miss out on adding to your collection.

Shirley Kane of Greyhounds as Pets of NE FL and Tim Leuschner of Jax Racing will be speaking about their lives with greyhounds and adoption.

Susan Thixton will be one of the guest speakers. Her topic:

Food or Feed - what are you feeding your dog? An overview of pet food regulations and ingredients. What you need to know to help select healthy foods for your pet.

Also Brian Collins with the Greyhound Health Intiative will be updating everyone on it's mission, goals and answer any questions you have on Dr. Couto's amazing work.

Island Updates:


There have been several changes to access the Island.

The toll plaza has been moved closer to the entrance area of the Island and across from the Welcome Center.  There are 3 lanes for payment and it is through an automated machine that accepts cash, debit or credit cards. You may choose from a daily, weekly, monthly, or a yearly pass.

A daily pass is $6.00 and is re-usable in a 24 hour time frame.  There is a 'help' button if needed as someone is close by during the day. You will need to go straight and go around the round-about to your left to find the hotels.
