Charity of the month: Save a Galgo Espanol, May 2019

SHOPPING HERE HELPS HOUNDS! This month ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to SAVE A GALGO ESPANOL (SAGE)


Save A Galgo Español (SAGE)  is a small Non Profit based in South Central Pennsylvania and was founded in 2011 to raise awareness and make a difference in the lives of the Galgo Español, a sighthound breed, used for hunting hare in its country of origin, Spain.
Their main goals are to educate people about the situation of the Galgo Español and to support local shelters in Spain through fundraising.

Another important part of our work is the placement of rescued galgos into safe and loving homes. SAGE is working with 3 rescues in Spain, to bring as many Galgos to the US for permanent homes as possible.

It's easy to help - just visit our Etsy shop and purchase anything during the month of May. Please visit our ABOUT US page for more information.  Since 2008, we have raised over $43,000 for sighthound rescue.  All goods in the H4H shop are donated by Etsy artists and crafters to help this cause.

Charity of the Month: Friends of Retired Greyhounds, April 2019

SHOPPING HERE HELPS HOUNDS! This month ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to FRIENDS OF RETIRED GREYHOUNDS



Friends of Retired Greyhounds is a 501c3 non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to working with kennel operators and other adoption groups to place retired greyhounds in responsible, loving homes. Our organization works with veterinarians to insure that dogs adopted from FOR Greyhounds are vaccinated, and in general good health before placing them in homes. In addition to this, we educate individual and groups about greyhounds, their history, their lives as racing dogs, and our adoption program.
BREAKING NEWS!  dateline FORG -

"We are three short weeks away from leaving for Spain to bring back some of the so deserving Galgos currently residing at Scooby Medina.  Although there are so many of these precious animals that need to be rehomed, FORG, along with Daphne Legacy Tours, has asked Scooby Medina to allow us to bring back 36 that have been in the shelter the longest.  There are some that in their short lives have spent more time in the shelter than they have outside the shelter.  Many of these galgos are under three years of age and they have only known shelter life.  
It averages $1,000 a galgo to get them to the US so your help is greytly needed and appreciated. Again - thank you for helping us help the Spanish Galgo."

Charity of the Month: Greyhound Adoption Center, March 2019

SHOPPING HERE HELPS HOUNDS! This month ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to GREYHOUND ADOPTION CENTER
GreyhoundAdoption Center is an organization that invests in HOPE and HAPPY ENDINGS.
"We see Greyhounds’ potential and amazingly, these dogs who have no reason to trust humans, give us their trust. With love, nutrition, and medical care, we see them transform from hopeless to hopeful.  Then we take it a step further.  Because they have trusted us, we feel it is our obligation to do everything we can to ensure their happy ending.  We work with adopters to match their lifestyles to the right dog.  Each adoption day is a new beginning and reinforces our hope in happily ever after.  

Now we are based in a volunteer-built shelter which is licensed, clean, comfortable, and climate-controlled.  Our center has 3.5 acres of land, two expansive, fully fenced grassy fields, 13 spacious “Dog Condos” and a primary greyhound lodging kennel. We often have around 50 dogs on premises.GAC relies on the generosity of members, sponsors, donors and volunteers.  The Greyhound Adoption Center is a 501(c)(3) charity."
