Michael McCann: Associate Producer
Former president of The Greyhound Project, Inc. Michael has been involved in greyhound adoption and promotion for almost 20 years. He and his wife have a house full of their own greyhounds. Michael has worked tirelessly to help raise public awareness of this extraordinary breed and to find homes for retired racers. Joining The Greyhound Project (TGP) in 1998, he was soon elected to its board of directors. In 2007 he was elected president of the organization. “A lot of adoption groups are pro-racing or anti racing. We’re pro-greyhound, pro-greyhound adoption.” Under Michael’s leadership TGP’s mission is “to get information out about greyhounds and to promote greyhound adoption.” TGP produces public service announcements, print ads, calendars and the quarterly magazine Celebrating Greyhounds. This first-class, beautifully laid-out and printed publication has won the award for the best single-breed dog magazine by the National Association of Dog Writers for the past 12 years, and is now available online. Considering his experience in greyhound adoption, we are lucky to have Michael on our team as an associate producer.
