Charity of the Month: September


This month all proceeds, minus fees, from the sales in the Handmade4Hounds Shop on Etsy will be donated to Greyhound Alliance for The Sunburst Project (

The Greyhound Alliance is a 501(c)3, all-volunteer organization that has recently helped establish The Sunburst Project, a combined effort of three non-profit organizations: The Greyhound Alliance, The Northern Consortium and the Emerald Coast Chapter of Greyhound Pets of America. The groups will provide funding made possible by donations, expertise and volunteers to insure the care, transportation and adoption of retired racers from JCKC, Pensacola, Ebro and Mobile tracks. The Sunburst Project Kennel located at Ebro Greyhound Park, takes in overflow greyhounds from the Panhandle tracks on an as needed basis. The kennel serves as a staging point to provide veterinary care for the retired greyhounds, including physical exams, spay or neuter procedures, vaccinations and preparation for transport. We intend to assist with shelter and adoption of as many greyhounds as space and resources will allow. Since the project began in August of 2011, we have transported almost 1,000 retired racers to various adoption groups throughout the country and Canada.

Everything in the Handmade4Hounds Shop is donated by Etsy artists and crafters to help hounds. Please visit our website for more information
