The Iowa Greyhound Park holds a Mutt Dog Derby every year showcasing our beloved pets racing toward a finish line, chasing each other, or making a b-line for the pond. In any case, it is a great time for the whole family including the furry ones. The Iowa Greyhound Park donates a portion of the entry fees to the DRHS! Thank you!

The DRHS was proud to be Kwikstop/Dairy Queen’s Kwik Kare program recipient for AUGUST! Every year, 12 local not-for-profit organizations are selected to be a Kwik Kare recipient for one month. During an organization’s designated month, all proceeds collected from Kwik Kare canisters are donated to that organization. Kwik Kare canisters are located at all Kwik Stop and Dairy Queen cash registers. Please make this last week of our special month count by patronizing a Kwik Stop or Dairy Queen and supporting this program!

The staff at Cottingham & Butler held a Jean's Day raised $800!
