Greyhounds Make Greyt Family Members Fund
Help our 4-legged friends during Covid-19 shelter in place. While we are all sheltering in place and keeping the world safe, we see many businesses affected by Covid-19; however, we may not think about some of those affected in the downstream of those shuttered businesses. Please help our 4-legged friends who are also forced to shelter in place. 100% of your donation goes to the care and feeding of these wonderful dogs!! With delays and suspensions of travel for transporting greyhounds to adoption groups across the country, the greyhound farms are bearing the brunt of the costs for caring for these wonderful animals until travel restrictions are lifted. Greyhound Pets of America Greater Northwest is not only trying to support any dogs arriving to our area for adoption, but also supporting the dogs who are delayed in being moved by sending monetary help to the farms themselves. When their racing careers are behind them, adoption groups like Greyhound Pets of America Greater Northwest spring into action and are responsible for finding forever homes for these wonderful animals. Greyhounds are often called 45mph couch potatoes for a reason. They love to run...but they also love to rest...on a couch, a lap, at your feet!! These groups raise funds through donations that are used to pay to have the dogs transported and ready to adopt to their forever homes; this includes vet visits for teeth cleaning and shots, neutering or spaying and any other medical needs when the dogs arrive to the group. The groups' volunteers spend countless hours raising funds, finding suitable homes and fostering greyhounds while homes are found.

Help Rescued Animals Enjoy Well Being And Comfort Fund
Zuri is a female white Bengal tiger who was surrendered in 2011 by a breeder who was days away from euthanizing her because of her extreme and costly, and seemingly incurable, medical issues. Luckily, she was rescued by Noah’s Ark Animal Rehabilitation Center and Sanctuary (Noah’s Ark) in Locust Grove, GA. When three-year old Zuri first arrived at Noah’s Ark, she was underweight, covered in ringworm, and was 90% hairless. After months of treatment and TLC, her fur began to grow back and she gained weight. Zuri is just one example of how Noah’s Ark embraces the care of rescued animals. Noah’s Ark is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located on 250 beautiful wooded acres that provides forever homes for more than 1,500 rescued animals from over 100 different species, including both exotic and domestic animals, as well as native wildlife. Noah's Ark provides their animals with large habitats that always have the animals' best interests in mind and that mimic their natural environments. This allows the animals to live out the rest of their lives in as stress free as possible, loving environments where they receive the best of care. I am in the finance organization at Cisco Systems and have volunteered and fundraised for this amazing organization for nine years. Like Zuri, most of the rescued animals at Noah’s Ark will spend their remaining days in peace at a place that truly cares for their well-being. I have chosen Zuri to be the champion to raise money to help care for all of our very special residents at Noah’s Ark, which include big cats, wolves, primates, hoof-stock, parrots, reptiles and more, many of which were severely abused or abandoned before their arrival to the sanctuary. Despite recovering from the ringworm, Zuri was recently diagnosed with melanoma. Zuri is a perfect example of how unpredictable the health of an animal can be and how costly it is to care for rescued animals. I ask you to partner with me to help these precious animals at Noah’s Ark by donating toward my $10,000 goal that will be designated specifically for the care of our rescued animals that are fortunate enough to make it to Noah’s Ark. The donations will be used to pay for medications, specialty food, enrichment, extra bedding, veterinarian bills, and other necessary animal-related costs. I would appreciate it so much if you would donate toward the care of these creatures that cannot take care of themselves so that they can enjoy their remaining years in peace, comfort and the best health possible. Be sure to designate your donation to ‘Animal Residents.’ Donations made in the United States are tax deductible. Also, Noah’s Ark is vetted by Cisco Systems to receive Cisco matching funds for donations made by Cisco employees. So, if you are a Cisco employee, please be sure to request a Cisco match through Bright Funds for your donation, thus doubling your impact on these animals.
