October's Charity of the Month

In October, as proceeds from the H4H store went to: Arizona Adopt A Greyhound, Inc. www.arizonaadoptagreyhound.org

Arizona Adopt A Greyhound is one of the largest greyhound adoption agencies in the US, finding homes for 400-500 greyhounds each year, many who have raced at Phoenix Greyhound Park. With this track due to close later this year, the charity is working hard to rehome as many dogs as possible & really need our help to raise the necessary funds.

November's Charity of the Month

This month we are supporting Galgo Rescue International Network (GRIN).
GRIN's Mission: The Galgo Rescue International Network was founded to establish a relationship between the galgo shelters in Spain and animal lovers in the United States and around the world. Our love of greyhounds and concern for their plight drew us to their cousins - the Galgos.

Working closely with Spanish galgo shelters, G.R.I.N. raises awareness of the galgo's plight through international educational campaigns and fundraising. They also aid shelters and assists with adoptions for rehomed Galgos in the US.

Galgos are used for hunting in Spain, and are normally abandoned or killed at the end of hunting season. GRIN also helps other sighthound breeds in similar situations, such as the Podencos.
