Owners and their greyhounds gathered for the event at Hyder Park. About 21 greyhound and greyhound mixes were at the event.

The reason for the walk is to raise awareness for the greyhound breed. “We want to make people understand that they make great pets and that we are here and greyhounds and mixes and sighthounds are available for adoption,” said New Mexico representative for the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas Diane Howell.

Event-goers who are interested in adopting were able to come and see the chapter’s foster dogs. About eight dogs are up for adoption here in the state. The New Mexico chapter is still looking for donations that can be given online.
