Fundraiser Events

Welcome to Greyhound Friends of North Carolina

Our mission is to provide adoption services for retired racing Greyhounds, provide for their health and welfare, educate the public about the availability and desirability of greyhounds as pets and place them through adoption into loving homes.

GFNC Annual Internet auction begins on Sunday,November 22nd and ends 10PM on Monday, November 30th. 

Online auction is our most popular Fundraiser!!!!

We have a lot of greyt items, some new and some gently used. Bid on an item for yourself and another for a gift to someone else.  Proceeds from this auction go to support the greyhounds in our care.  And if there is an item you REALLY WANT make sure you are watching Monday night.  If someone outbids you the items stays open for 10 minutes after that bids. You have 10 minutes to bid again, which resets the clock for another 10 minutes.  We have seen some fun bidding wars in the past.

Soaring Cindy book based on a true story of a greyhound setting a 2006 Guinness World Record High Jumping at Purina Incredible Dog Challenge - 68" Kathy Conroy adopted Cindy in June 2001 as a puppy and Cindy passed March 19, 2015.

Cindy Set a record three years previous to this, then broke it in 2006 in this video. She's now (August 23, 2013) had the record for 10 total years. Incredible.  See they are not all couch potato and can do more than run.....
