The goal has been reached! You can still donate to show your support.
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.
