Charity of the Month: April

This month all proceeds, minus fees, will be donated to: Maine Greyhound Placement Service

Maine Greyhound Placement Service is a 501(3)c humane non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving, responsible homes for retired racing Greyhounds that can no longer compete on the racetrack. MGPS is operated by volunteers and depends on fundraising for its operating expenses.

"Our adoption kennel is currently in an old milking barn that we converted over 8 years ago and now accommodates 45 plus retired racers, a boarding room, our gift shop, office and laundry. Since then, we have outgrown the facility and it is also becoming a safety problem for both the dogs and our volunteers. Therefore, we are actively working on building a state of the art new kennel facility, and appreciate any and all the help we can get. The Greyhounds and humans of Maine Greyhound Placement Service thank you for your support."
