This weekend, an event in Oklahoma City benefits a rescue group dedicated to re-homing retired racing greyhounds.  Hounds of the Heartland holds its Greyhound Gala this Saturday afternoon at the Contemporary Arts Center.  Hounds of the Heartland president Emily Hummel says some people might shy away from adopting a greyhound because of misconceptions about the way racing dogs are treated.

Adoptable greyhounds will be mingling among the guests at the event Saturday.  More information can be found at houndsoftheheartland.org
