PEOPLE AROUND TOWN: Meet Jackie Cappiello, pictured above with her dog, Style. During his racing days, the 11-year-old greyhound was known as "Grey's Freestyle." Jackie is a volunteer with Greyhound Pets of America Senior Sanctuary of Florida, which is dedicated to placing senior greyhounds over the age of seven either in permanent foster homes or with new adoptive families. At the time of the photo, she was explaining adoption/foster opportunities to a group of ladies attending an event at the Harborview Center in Clearwater. Persons interested in adopting a greyhound may call (727) 430-0456.
