Charity of the Month: Galgo Rescue International Network, February 2018

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

 The Galgo Rescue International Network (GRIN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization run entirely by volunteers that was founded to establish a relationship between the animal shelters in Spain and animal lovers in the US and around the world. Our love of greyhounds and concern for their plight drew us to their cousins — the galgos and podencos.
Since its inception in 2006, GRIN has rehomed hundreds of dogs (most of them galgos); provided thousands of leashes, collars, and coats to the shelters; delivered hundreds of pounds of medical supplies to the shelter clinics; and donated tens of thousands of dollars in cash to shelters.

Charity of the Month: Greyhound Friends for Life, January 2018


Once again, we have chosen GFFL for our beneficiary group due to the repeated extreme disasters that have occurred in California.  First the wildfires (worst in state history), now devastating mudslides.
Some adopters were evacuated, some lost everything, and some are hoping that their homes survived. In the Tubbs Fire in October, GFFL lost it's van, office equipment, crates, sales merchandise, and our 2017 Reunion cash proceeds.

Not only will your donations help GFFL replace what we lost, but you will help our greyhound fire survivors as well as their adopters recover. We have received a tremendous outpouring and love and support, which has meant so much to those impacted by the fire. We will be eternally greytful for your donations, which will enable us to continue to find homes for ex-racing greyhounds and other greyhounds and greyhound mixes in need.
