Music City Greyhound Adoption
Our Prison Program began August 2015, when we placed several greyhounds
into the Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility, Nashville, Tennessee.
The greyhounds live in the facility and their assigned dog handlers care for them, which includes feeding, exercise, grooming, companionship and training.
Linda Greg is our experienced dog trainer who works with the handlers and dogs
This program benefits both the dogs and their handlers and lasts ten weeks. Afterwards, the dogs move into foster homes and are available for adoption.
MCGA is very excited to be a part of this program and would like to thank
Corrections Corporation of America, the Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility
and Mid-South Greyhound Adoption Option for their involvement.
