The group in Montgomery is brand-spanking new and a satellite of the Mobile group. Gwen Gay could help you with the Montgomery folks or the Mobile folks. In Mobile, we do foster dogs from the Mobile track when their adoption kennel is full. In Montgomery, they only have foster homes, no adoption kennel. Gwen is certainly the person to contact. Go to www.gpasa.org and you can see the Montgomery site from there. Gwen's phone number is also on that site. Best of luck whenever you're ready!!!!!!!

 

Thank you so much for letting me know about the Montgomery group!!! :D I had heard that they were trying to start one. So glad things are under way! I really want to get involved somewhere and this just might be it (I know they don't have a kennel, but I'm sure I can do something to help). I missed their M&G's in November. Hopefully I can get with them for something coming up in December. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :banana

Julie,

 

I am new here also, and just wanted you to know that Kirk and I adopted just last Wednesday from the Birmingham racetrack adoption facility. It was a very nice experience. Kevin worked with us the first day we visited. He let us look at each dog for as long as we wanted. He knew the dogs well and I must say they were happy, healthy dogs. We chose one (or he chose us!), had to wait 10 days for him to get fixed (normally wouldn't take that long but Thanksgiving got in the way), and then picked him up from Gayle. Gayle was also wonderful. I was very impressed.

 

Hope you find exactly what you want when you are ready.

Really?!? It's too bad that you will be moving! I have been hoping that I could find a permanent resident here with greys. Who will my dog(s) play with?

 

I will be down there often! We'll get ours together to play as soon as you have yours! :D I'm looking at jobs in Montgomery, Auburn and Opelika so maybe something will turn up. ;)

 

Good luck in your search! I would love to met you and Kip whenever you pass through town! What field are you in? I hope it isn't a rough interview process...

 

Environmental Engineering/Specialist. SSOOO...if you know of any companies... let me know. :D;)

Wow! Very interesting! I can't say that I run in those circles. I'm an event planner. I'll keep my ears open though! There are a lot of new industries coming into Opelika, especially. I'd keep looking around there. Contact the Opelika Chamber of Commerce for the new businesses (they are really nice there-my favorite Chamber in the area :blush ).

 

Thanks to all for the suggestions and the encouragement! This weekend, I volunteered with the Montgomery group at a PetsMart. A lot of fun! They have some great hounds and the people there are so nice! And, that group is working on getting some of the dogs from Victoryland - such good news! :D And the best news? DH and I are looking at moving even sooner (as in before Christmas) so - hope I'm not speaking too soon - we could be adopting as soon as Christmas!!! :yay So excited! We are waiting until we know exactly what date we will be moving before we start the adoption process, but the end is in sight! Whoo hooo! :colgate I'm thinking this will be my favorite Christmas yet!
