Mountain Hounds is a weekend getaway for Greyhounds and their owners, with all proceeds from fund raising activities going to Greyhound Friends of North Carolina (GFNC), a 501c3 non profit organization, to help support the kennel and find loving homes for retired racing greyhounds. Mountain Hounds participants will usually begin arriving on Thursday and staying through Sunday. However, many families will be arriving early or staying later into the week for a full vacation.
Attendance for Mountain Hounds has averaged about 290 people and 300 greyhounds each year. We have been called “The Best Little Event You Will Ever Attend” and “A Greyhound Retreat”. Come see for yourself and experience the beauty of the Tennessee Smoky Mountains and the company of greyhounds.
Registration information is located on the Registration page. Your registration fee is used to pay for the expense of holding Mountain Hounds. We hope you find the registration fee to be nominal when compared to the full weekend you experience. All proceeds from Mountain Hounds go to finding homes for retired racing greyhounds. Help make this event successful!
