Wheeling, WV (May 3, 2019) – Wheeling Island Hotel Casino Racetrack revamps their adoption program with the construction of an in-house Greyhound Adoption Center and will celebrate with a ribbon cutting ceremony and waiving of adoption fees on Saturday, May 4th at 2pm.
The newly constructed adoption center, located on the floor of the racing area, will serve as a holding area for Wheeling Island greyhound that are up for adoption. The center will also feature an area for adopters to get acquainted with the greyhounds before taking them to their forever home.
Carrie Scanlon, Regional Director of Marketing, is thrilled to have a center on the property that highlights the greyhounds available for adoption and is proud to be part of an organization with a focus on their retired athletes. “It is wonderful to have a center on property that allows guests to stop and see our retired hounds or begin the adoption process.” Scanlon said. “ Greyhound racing is responsible for the opening of the Wheeling Island property since it’s opening in 1976 and will remain a vital amenity for many years to come. It is very important that we continue to fund these initiatives to ensure the proper care and placement of our retirees.”
The Wheeling Island Greyhound Adoption Center will be open every Friday through Sunday from 12pm – 1:30pm or by set appointment. All greyhounds will be spayed or neutered, current with all vaccines, heartworm check and dental cleaning before adoption.
The Adoption Center will have extended hours of operation on Saturday, May 4th, from 12pm – 5pm in celebration of the grand opening.
