The American Whippet Club National Specialty Show will be held in Kingsport, TN from APRIL 20-27, 2024.

MeadowView Conference Resort & Convention Center

The WRAP Parade of Rescues is tentatively scheduled on Friday, April 26, 2024 followed by a social hour for WRAP volunteers and anyone who is interested in Whippet rescue – all are welcome. For information on the Parade of Rescues contact Dianna Johnson, copperstar@hctc.net.

Janet Curtiss is planning the social hour at the hotel directly after the Parade and you can contact her at whippetastic@gmail.com for details. We hope to recruit new volunteers, and if you are within driving distance of Kingsport we hope you and your WRAP rescue Whippets will be able to participate. It’s thrilling to see so many beautiful Whippets at the National Specialty and the shopping for all kinds of Whippet-centric items for you and your dogs is beyond comparison!

Contact Dianna Johnson, copperstar@hctc.net to sign up for the Parade of Rescues. Goodie bags with swag will be provided to Parade participants!

  • Rescue’s name / age
  • Photo(s) of your rescue Whippet, to be included in the slide show at the WRAP table
