Charity of the Month: February

We raised a whopping $259.96 for our January group: GPA-AZ! Thank you everyone!

This month's group is Retired Greyhound Athletes (RGA)

Retired Greyhound Athletes (RGA) is an all volunteer 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose primary mission is the placement of retired racing greyhounds in qualified homes. We provide ongoing support to ensure successful dog/owner relationships in addition to public education about the needs of this unique breed. Our mission is grounded in the promotion of the welfare of retired racing greyhounds. We receive income through adoption fees, donations and fundraisers. All expenses are related to the care and placement of retired racing greyhounds.

RGA is located in NE Wisconsin. The last round of greyhound retirees left Dairyland Track in Kenosha, WI on January 2nd and were welcomed into new foster homes. On January 16th we partnered with GPA to bring in our first round of greyhounds from Florida. We want the public to know that just because there are no longer any racing tracks in Wisconsin does not mean that there are no more greyhounds needing homes. The need is as great as ever and we will continue to work to find homes for this amazing breed. For more information on RGA please visit our website at
