Charity of the Month: July

The Handmade4Hounds Shop on Etsy helps a different adoption group each month. All the items in the shop are donated by various Etsy artists and crafters. This month all proceeds, minus fees, will be donated to Northern Greyhound Adoptions in St. Albans, VT (

N.G.A. is the only retired racing Greyhound adoption kennel in Vermont - and at any given time we have between 30 and 50 Greyhounds looking for their forever families!

As a non-profit Greyhound adoption organization, N.G.A.'s aim is to accommodate ex-racers, spay or neuter each individual, and integrate them into the surrounding communities. Each year, we strive to place 60 dogs. Dogs are welcomed into our kennel, and socialized with our volunteers and other Greyhounds as they relax and adjust into their retirement years. Pursuant to our mission, we work to educate the public and increase awareness of Greyhounds. N.G.A. places dogs throughout Vermont and Northern New York, as well as in Canada through The League of Extraordinary Greyhounds (T-Legs) in Montreal, Quebec and The Greyhound Supporters (GSNCR) in Ottawa, Ontario.
