The American Greyhound Council (AGC) is now accepting nominations for the 2010 Adoption Person of the Year Award. The award was established in 2007 by the American Greyhound Track Operators Association (AGTOA) to recognize individuals who have made exceptional contributions to greyhound adoption. 

The AGC, which funds and oversees adoption grants and other greyhound welfare programs for greyhound racing, is proud to take the lead in recognizing the dedicated volunteers who give so generously of their time, money, energy and passion to ensure that every adoptable greyhound finds a forever home upon retirement.

Any individual or organization may nominate a candidate for the Greyhound Adoption Person of the Year award. The nominee may be a volunteer or paid individual in the U.S. or Canada.

The winner and his/her guest receive complimentary airfare and lodging to the AGC/AGTOA spring meeting, where the award is presented, and also receive a $500 donation for the adoption group specified by the winner.

The deadline for submitting a nomination is Wednesday, September 1, 2010. Nominations may be submitted online or via email.
