Greyhound Friends in the News
A Message from the Director
This summer our main focus - aside from moving dogs into our shelter and then out to good homes - is on fundraising. Greyhound Friends is facing a serious financial deficit this year, as the economy has continually pushed operating costs up and donations down. We continue to cut costs where we can, but ultimately we have to keep going because the dogs' needs are urgent and unrelenting. If you've been thinking about sending a contribution - in any amount - NOW is the time.
Please write out that check, or click the green box at the top right of this page to make a quick, secure donation via our PayPal account. You can make a one-time gift or sign up for automatic monthly contributions.
We're grateful for all gifts, which help save the lives of dogs like little lurcher Doris. She was with us for several months, since she is a very smart girl and an escape artist; she needed a special home with a very high & secure fence. This week Doris went to a wonderful home well suited to her needs. Though her trip here from Ireland was paid for by her Irish rescuers, she needed time and TLC at the shelter to finally go home. And that time costs money.
Most of Greyhound Friends' funding comes from individual donors. We cannot do our lifesaving work without you. THANK YOU for your friendship and support.

In addition, if you sign up for the new "Amazon Smile" program and select Greyhound Friends as your charity of choice, Amazon will send us 0.5% of any eligible purchase you make!

Items Needed for Thrift Store
Greyhound Friends operates a thrift store - Second Chances
- in Natick Center. Donated items are sold and all profits go to support our kennel operations. (Please click the link for store hours, news, etc.)
The shop is in need of new donations, such as unique jewelry, kitchen items, home décor, books, artwork, clothes/shoes and vintage/antique pieces of small furniture. Glass and dishware items are also gratefully accepted. Spring items are selling especially well right now.
Donations can be dropped off at the Greyhound Friends kennel or at Second Chances - located at 6 W. Central Street in Natick (right at the intersection of Rts. 135 and 27). Thank you!!!
