Short-Term Foster Homes Needed
We currently have 3 greys who would benefit from short-term (2-3 weeks) foster care. Adoptive homes are being prepared for them, but are not quite ready yet. If you have a spot available on your couch for a couple of weeks, please call Louise at 508-435-5969 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Donations Needed - Bedding, Food, Transport Costs
If you're thinking of stopping by to visit Greyhound Friends, to run your hounds in our fenced field or just to say hello, we could really use more bedding for the dogs (blankets, carpeting, sheets) as well as dog food (Iams or other good quality kibble, rawhide chews, canned food, rice, olive oil, etc.). Supplies of both are running a bit low right now. Many thanks if you can drop off a donation!
