Our Tails Are Wagging For...

The Greyhound Protection League

The Greyhound Protection League was one of the first Greyhound organizations of its kind. Founded in 1991, the Greyhound rescue organization works to illuminate the horrible conditions surrounding Greyhound racing and educate people on the hardships these lovable dogs have to deal with. Their desire to expose the terrifying living conditions for Greyhounds keeps them so dedicated to helping Greyhounds, and they’re not stopping anytime soon!

We encourage you to read their How You Can Help page to see ways that you can help save these great dogs who just want someone to love and care for them! Don’t have much time to volunteer, or want to give something a little extra? Check out their Donations page! Anything and everything you can do would be so appreciated by the Greyhound Protection League – help them spread their cause!

Helping Out Greyhound Injury Fund Blog

The Greyhound Injury Fund blog has quite an impressive story: the blog began as their way to help raise $14,300 for hit-and-run greyhound injury vet bills. They accomplished that mission. Then, they want to assist Greyhounds in getting out of Guam – accomplished! They also donated to Arizona Greyhound Rescue, an organization we recently posted about. The list of “mission accomplished!” they have is really inspiring – view their About Us page to read all their achievements!

Their current mission? They’re working to raise about $13,000 to cover vet bills for two Greyhounds involved in a car accident. They need your help to meet this number and ensure the two Greyhounds lead a healthy, happy life, so we ask that you please visit their Fundraising Ideas and Donate Now pages and see where you can help out – every little bit goes a long way! The passionate, motivated group of people behind Grehound Injury Fund are an inspiration to us all, and show that you really can make a difference!

Greyhound Rescue Foundation of Tennessee

There’s quite a few different Greyhound rescue organizations out there, and we want to do our best to shine the spotlight on them and help them all further their cause! Today we’re taking a look at the Greyhound Rescue Foundation of Tennessee. The foundation was founded in 2000, with the mission of making a difference in the lives of ex-racing Greyhounds. The organization understands that they cannot save every greyhound, but just like in the “Starfish Story”, it does mean a difference to each Greyhound they are able to save.

We hope you’ll take a few moments to read their Success Stories, and we know you’ll be touched and inspired. View the adorable Available Hounds if you’d like the rewarding opportunity to care of a Greyhound!

Meeting The Great People At Arizona Greyhound Rescue

As you may know, a portion of our revenues go toward supporting animal rescue organizations. We’re regularly out there getting to know different organizations, and we recently came across Arizona Greyhound Rescue. Joan and Steve Randles founded the organization in 1995, after finding that the racing greyhounds they wanted to adopt from the Tucson Greyhound Park were sadly no longer adoptable and not recognized as actual pets.

They now work to ensure greyhounds can be adopted by loving families, and go on to enjoy the care of doting owners. Today, the group is made up of dedicated volunteers who participate in kennel turnout and intake, home inspections, meet-and-greet events at local pet stores, and transporting dogs to various events. We encourage you to help Arizona Greyhound Rescue and this wonderful dog breed by Volunteering Your Time or Donating. Every little bit goes a very long way.

Get The Inside Scoop From Savannah Pets!

We had the pleasure recently of saying hello to Dena Stapleton, who writes the “Savannah Pets Examiner” section on http://Examiner.com. Dena writes regular articles on everything pet-related, and we’re so impressed by her insight into pets and always interesting articles!

We love “Thanksgiving Goodies For Your Pets”, where Dena outlines different delish dog treats you can make for your canine and feline friends. Thanksgiving may be over, but why not make them for your pet’s stocking this holiday season? We’re also fans of “The H1N1 is still cauisng concern for pets”, since many people are actually not aware that H1N1 can be given to pets, too, so it’s important that if you or someone else are showing signs of illness, get it checked out asap so that you also don’t spread it to your pets!

Check out Savannah Pets Examiner, and read all of Dena’s great posts!
