Charity of the Month: Galgopod, April 2021

 

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

Galgopod.org is a 501(c)(3) public charity organized 2018 to encourage adoption of Galgos (Spanish Greyhounds) and Podencos as an alternative to American greyhounds, which are now in short supply due to diminished racing. They are currently based in California and staffed completely by volunteers.

Galgopod works closely with and directs resources to centers that rescue, rehabilitate and relocate abused and abandoned Galgos and Podencos from Spain.  They also support U.S. and Canadian groups that champion the rescue and adoption of Galgos and Podencos. Fundraising is a huge part of this work. Due to current EU travel restrictions, the only way to transport rescue dogs at this time is by using a cargo service. The logistics of transporting the dogs to the airport is also more involved as well, resulting in a total higher transportation cost of approximately $1700 per dog. Once the dogs arrive at JFK, they are picked up by their respective adoption groups and are on their way to their forever homes here in the United States.

Charity of the Month: American Lurcher Project, November 2020

 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  or https://www.facebook.com/AmericanLurcherProject
