Charity of the Month: September

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

GPA/LAandMS is located in Covington, Louisiana, and is a chapter of Greyhound Pets of America.  The purpose of Greyhound Pets of America(GPA) is to find responsible loving homes for Greyhounds, to acquaint the public with the desirability of Greyhounds as pets, and to inform them of the availability of Greyhounds for adoption.

Greyhound Pets of America was founded in 1987 to find homes for racing greyhounds when their racing careers were finished. Through the support of our volunteers and countless hours that they have given, GPA and its chapters, including this one, have adopted over 80,000 greyhounds to homes throughout the country.

With recent flooding in Louisiana and throughout the area, many homes have been flooded, and many foster dogs have had to be moved.  The most pressing need is for dog food, and if you feel able to donate directly, donations can be sent to GPA/LAandMS at 25 Pipes Loop, Covington, LA  70435-9509.

Meanwhile, any purchase you make this month in the H4H shop will also bring help where it is needed.
