Charity of the Month: September

SHOPPING HERE HELPS HOUNDS! This month ALL PROCEEDS  from the Handmade4Hounds Shop on Etsy, minus fees, will be donated to

GPA Senior Sanctuary of Florida is a group of volunteers who are dedicated to placing senior greyhounds over the age of seven either in permanent foster homes or hopefully with new adoptive families. They are also dedicated to educating the public of the importance and true meaning of lifelong commitment when adopting.

Senior greyhounds are friendly, intelligent, affectionate dogs that thrive on attention. When their racing careers are over, they make marvelous companions. Unfortunately, there are many senior greyhounds retired from breeding, abandoned in shelters, or thoughtlessly returned by their adopters to the adoption groups they originated from. It is unfair and extremely sad that, at an elderly age when they should be relaxing and enjoying the golden years of their lives, they are being bounced around and left to be forgotten. This is why the Senior Sanctuary was formed. See our seniors and more info at

It's easy to help - just visit our Etsy shop and purchase anything during the month of September.  Please visit our ABOUT US page for more information.
All goods in the H4H shop are donated by Etsy artists and crafters to help sighthound rescue.
