Charity of the Month: American Lurcher Project, June 2018

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

(formerly Ohio Lurcher Project)





The American Lurcher Project Team works on behalf of the lurchers (greyhound mixed breeds) to get them to responsible adoption groups. We believe these wonderful dogs deserve a second chance to live a life in a real home. Lurchers have a wonderful strong spirit and most of the lurchers adjust quickly and are very appreciative of their new home and family. We are not an adoption group, but we rescue and transport the dogs to groups throughout the United States and Canada. We are forever indebted to the adoption groups who have taken these wonderful dogs and given them a second chance.  More information at www.americanlurcherproject.org



It's easy to help - just visit our Etsy shop and purchase anything during the month of June.  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.

SHOPPING HERE HELPS HOUNDS! This month ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to Greyhound Welfare, Inc. http://greyhoundwelfare.org


Greyhound Welfare is an all-volunteer, non-profit greyhound adoption group. We place retired racing greyhounds throughout the metropolitan Washington DC area, including DC, Northern Virginia, and Central/Southern Maryland.Our retired racers come to us from tracks in the Mid-Atlantic and South, and all our greyhounds live in real homes until they are placed. This helps us teach the dogs about their new world, and learn more about the individual dogs. Knowing our dogs well helps us greatly with our placement success. It also helps us better help our adopters once the dog goes home.

 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

SHOPPING HERE HELPS HOUNDS!  This month ALL PROCEEDS will be donated to GREYHOUND FRIENDS FOR LIFE 



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.
