Charity of the Month: December

SHOPPING HERE HELPS HOUNDS! This month ALL PROCEEDS  from the Handmade4Hounds Shop on Etsy, minus fees, will be donated to

 Galgo Podenco Support

Galgo Podenco Support (GPS), a volunteer non-profit entity, was established to support the Spanish licensed charity groups that rescue, rehabilitate and rehome abandoned and abused galgos and podencos. Inspired by the tireless efforts of those on the front lines, GPS offers assistance in the way of financial support, practical help, and facilitation of adoptions to the US. 

Are there obstacles to running an organization that focuses on the needs of dogs in a foreign country? Absolutely. In addition to obvious challenges such as language and distance barriers, one often hears "what about the dogs here in the US? There is plenty of need here". GPS believes that there are no borders defining dogs in need. What the Spanish hounds endure is a global condition that affects all of us, one way or another. The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated. — Mahatma Gandhi


GPS would like to express our great appreciation to the US greyhound groups who have opened their hearts and homes to the Spanish hounds. We so appreciate their professionalism, support and passion for the plight of the galgos and podencos. For information about how GPS facilitates adoptions, please visit www.galgopodencosupport.org

Charity of the Month: October

(formerly Ohio Lurcher Project)





The American Lurcher Project Team works on behalf of the lurchers (greyhound mixed breeds) to get them to responsible adoption groups. We believe these wonderful dogs deserve a second chance to live a life in a real home. Lurchers have a wonderful strong spirit and most of the lurchers adjust quickly and are very appreciative of their new home and family. We are not an adoption group, but we rescue and transport the dogs to groups throughout the United States and Canada. We are forever indebted to the adoption groups who have taken these wonderful dogs and given them a second chance.  More information at www.americanlurcherproject.org

Charity of the Month: September

SHOPPING HERE HELPS HOUNDS! This month ALL PROCEEDS  from the Handmade4Hounds Shop on Etsy, minus fees, will be donated to






GPA/LAandMS is located in Covington, Louisiana, and is a chapter of Greyhound Pets of America.  The purpose of Greyhound Pets of America(GPA) is to find responsible loving homes for Greyhounds, to acquaint the public with the desirability of Greyhounds as pets, and to inform them of the availability of Greyhounds for adoption.

Greyhound Pets of America was founded in 1987 to find homes for racing greyhounds when their racing careers were finished. Through the support of our volunteers and countless hours that they have given, GPA and its chapters, including this one, have adopted over 80,000 greyhounds to homes throughout the country.


With recent flooding in Louisiana and throughout the area, many homes have been flooded, and many foster dogs have had to be moved.  The most pressing need is for dog food, and if you feel able to donate directly, donations can be sent to GPA/LAandMS at 25 Pipes Loop, Covington, LA  70435-9509.

Meanwhile, any purchase you make this month in the H4H shop will also bring help where it is needed.

AZGreyhounds, located in Sierra Vista, AZ, is dedicated to the rescue and adoption of these beautiful animals and finding forever homes for each one. The program also provides educational programs to local schools and groups about retired Greyhounds, their history, Greyhound racing and our adoption program.

AZGreyhounds, Inc. is a non-profit corporation under the laws of the State of Arizona and a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization under the rules of the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

We send condolences to the organization on the recent loss of their founder, Dave Breen.  He was a friend to all, especially greyhounds, and will be sorely missed.

Meanwhile, AZGreyhounds is helping rehome the dogs displaced by the closing of the Tucson track.  When that monumental task is done, they plan to help resettle dogs from the Tijuana track back in the US.  None of this can be done without your support.

GAC finds loving homes for rescued track greyhounds and greyhound mixes. Our program focuses on each dog’s wellbeing, providing quality medical care and TLC as they transition to forever homes. GAC ensures that each dog is well matched to its new family. Transportation, food, shelter and medical care — often including extensive surgeries for broken legs sustained on the track — is covered by donations from greyhound lovers, grants and public contributions. Many dogs are housed in cage-free modules complete with air conditioning and dog runs. The dogs socialize with people, other dogs, cats and children, all in an effort to assess their behavior via our expert profilers. Trained adoption representatives profile each dog and each adopter to find the right fit.  Since 1987, we have placed over 6,000 dogs into loving homes.  With your help we will continue this important work.
