Charity of the Month: December & January

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

 Galgo Podenco Support

Galgo Podenco Support (GPS), a volunteer non-profit entity, was established to support the Spanish licensed charity groups that rescue, rehabilitate and rehome abandoned and abused galgos and podencos. Inspired by the tireless efforts of those on the front lines, GPS offers assistance in the way of financial support, practical help, and facilitation of adoptions to the US. 

Are there obstacles to running an organization that focuses on the needs of dogs in a foreign country? Absolutely. In addition to obvious challenges such as language and distance barriers, one often hears "what about the dogs here in the US? There is plenty of need here". GPS believes that there are no borders defining dogs in need. What the Spanish hounds endure is a global condition that affects all of us, one way or another. The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated. — Mahatma Gandhi

GPS would like to express our great appreciation to the US greyhound groups who have opened their hearts and homes to the Spanish hounds. We so appreciate their professionalism, support and passion for the plight of the galgos and podencos. For information about how GPS facilitates adoptions, please visit www.galgopodencosupport.org

All goods in the H4H shop are donated by Etsy artists and crafters to help sighthound rescue.
