It is hard to believe that the RFA concept was conceived by Dennis McKeon less than two years ago.After getting around all the red tape, Martin Roper helped to make it a reality and the rest is history.

Sincere thanks to Angela for the nice tribute written on the main page and especially being able to do this with a new baby,and all her hard work on keeping the site up to date.

Special thanks has to go to the generosity of the initial sponsors and the owners and kennels who are donating the racer's earnings to this noble project.We achieved this financial level in less than one and a half years.In addition to the financial gains a bridge was built between racing and adoption and a solid working model was established which can only continue to build from here.

Also a sincere thank you to Erika and Phil for hosting the site.

On a personal note I thank Dennis for inviting me into this project.It has been fun and rewarding watching it all come together.

Thanks to Bob, Angela, Martin, Larry, and all the other owners, and the many greyhound lovers who have supported this simple musing that I had one day, and made an idle daydream come true.

It is an honor to have been involved with the project, and with the terrific adoption folks who do the grunt work, getting the dogs into the homes.

God bless you all.

Even though we've known this was inevitable for some time, looking at it from where we were more than a year ago it's an incredible milestone.

It doesn't seem like all that long ago when Dennis and I flooded each other's e-mail boxes with ideas, problems, obstacles, and more ideas until RFA finally started to move in fits and starts. When the donations started to roll in we had to pinch ourselves occasionally and readjust our optimism upward to ever dizzying heights as our expectations were always exceeded. Larry couldn't possibly have been more generous, helpful or encouraging. Erika, Angela and Bob came on board and gave us some organization, continuity and a place to show RFA to the world. Now the momentum has really started to pick up with Henry, Becky & Dave, and Drinda on board as well as Angela as owners.

Where do we go from here? How can we get more dogs in the program?
