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.

NEVADA GREYHOUNDS UNLIMITED 

 
Nevada Greyhounds Unlimited is a northern Nevada non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving permanent homes for ex-racing greyhounds. We do not have our own kennel, but work with several other rescue groups that bring the greyhounds off the track and prepare them for adoption. We talk to prospective adopters, take in applications, conduct home visits, and then process applications through the adoption agencies that we work with. Most of the greyhounds we place are from the Caliente racetrack in Tijuana, Mexico or from Phoenix, Arizona.
We sponsor many events throughout the year that serve both to educate the public and to help us meet people who are interested in adopting greyhounds. We have many wonderful volunteers that help us with everything from writing our newsletter to helping us with all our Meet N Greets and social functions. Many of our greyhounds are trained as Pet Therapy dogs and we even have a couple of them that are certified as Service Dogs.

Charity of the Month: March

SHOPPPING HERE HELPS HOUNDS!
THIS MONTH ALL PROCEEDS, MINUS FEES, FROM SALES IN THE HANDMADE4HOUNDS SHOP ON ETSY WILL BE DONATED TO

Halfway Home Greyhound Adoption in Tulsa, OK, is a unique adoption team formed in April 2002 by Teddy Palmer to help greyhounds find adoptive homes that do not have access to track adoption programs. Teddy built a 16 run kennel in her own backyard to house hounds in waiting. The small group of dedicated volunteers is motivated by a mutual love of the breed and respect for the farms’ commitment to the dogs. Halfway Home is unique because they not only support local adoption, but they also organize hauls to transport greyhounds from farms and tracks to adoption groups all over the country. The amount of time and money that go into each haul is often enormous, and could not be done without the commitment of many people willing to provide their time and efforts to cover the expenses of each haul.

Halfway Home is a non-profit 501(c)3 that is currently celebrating moving 5,927 dogs into loving homes…Some of them could be in your homes right now!
