November's Charity of the Month

We raised over $250 for September/October's Charity! We went from our worst month to our best month after a "drive" for more item donations. Our members sure stepped up! There are SO many greyt new items in the store - check 'em out!

This month Lenora, one of the H4H leaders, has chosen LIGHT - Long Island GreyHound Transfer. Their website is LIGHT has placed over 1200 retired racing greyhounds since they started in 1995, and the organization is entirely run by volunteers. Our sympathies are with Lenora who recently lost a greyt boy, Wyatt.

Pictured below is Fella, one of the greyhounds up for adoption by LIGHT. They say he's so easy going - I bet he doesnt even mind that he's wearing a pink collar!!

Featured Team Member: PennyDogAccessories

My name is Kerry, I'm 22 and live in Leicestershire in the UK with my partner Alex and our greyhound Penny. I sell resin and acrylic jewellery on Etsy, not necessarily greyhound themed, but with a greyhound charity in mind. I have been making jewellery in various forms for 10 years, working with resin for a year and only a month or so with the saw and acrylic sheets! £1 ($2) from everything I sell goes to the Retired Greyhound Trust in the UK who provided a lot of treatment for Penny when we adopted her, and this is my way to repay them. She was ten years old and in bad shape, she still has a lot of fur missing from her legs and her belly, but it was all paid for, which is something we could have never afforded. Thank you RGT!

Her resin necklaces, earrings and more are just adorable! Thanks Penny for helping the hounds and H4H!
