Charity of the Month: February


Last month we raised $291.74 for Galgo Rescue International Network (GRIN).

This month all proceeds, minus fees, will be donated to Oregon Greyhound Adoption.

Oregon Greyhound is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose mission is to find permanent, loving homes for retired racing greyhounds. Our goals are threefold: To inform and educate the public about the joys of greyhound adoption; to identify suitable, caring homes for retired racers; and to provide pre- and post-adoption support to facilitate the transition from the track to home.

OGA also has a unique and charitable focus for 2011, "The Gift of Life" greyhound blood donor program. Where greyhounds are life savers and superheros!

"Not only will your greyhound give you years of love and devotion, but they may also help save the lives of other dogs. Canine blood donors are essential to critically ill or injured dogs. Dogs that are good candidates for blood donation have a friendly temperament, are 55 pounds or over and are from 1 – 8 years of age."
