Originally started as "Lord AAGI's Kennels", the Greyhounds of Fairhaven have been under the continuous direction of founder Mik Wilkens. Mik first conceived of the idea of promoting adoption at Renaissance Faires in 1995, and with the invaluable assistance of Jeff Siegel and his staff at the Arizona Renaissance Festival, greyhounds have become a regular part of the Faire.

The Greyhounds of Fairhaven perform at a variety of events in the southwest United States. As an independent promotional group, the Greyhounds of Fairhaven represents all greyhound adoption groups within the area of each particular event.

Info:

Scott and Jenifer McDonald became active with Greyhound rescue upon adopting Izzy, a petite fawn brindle female who coursed into their hearts in 2000. Their dedication to Greyhound rescue soon merged with their love of theatre and living history reenactment, and developed into the decision to create H.M. Hounds. H.M. Hounds was officially formed in 2002 when the opportunity to participate in the Virginia Renaissance Faire just couldn't be passed by!

H.M. Hounds performs and participates in a variety of Celtic and Renaissance Faires. An independent promotional group, H.M. Hounds provides information regarding many local, regional, and national greyhound adoption sources.
