Your donation dollars support Greyhound Friends’ ongoing adoption efforts enabling us to transport, feed, shelter and provide veterinary care for greyhounds waiting for their adoptive homes. Thanks to generous donors like you, we have found loving homes for more than 5,600 greyhounds over the past twenty-five years. And we’re just getting started.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar and will double (or even triple!) the amount of your donation. Some even match donations from spouses, board members, or retirees.

Please check with your benefits coordinator to see if your company has a matching gift program and to obtain the appropriate paperwork. You may be asked for our Federal Tax ID (56-1963355) and/or a copy of our IRS 501(c)(3) letter.

Kennel Needs

It is amazing how quickly things get used up or wear out around the kennel. We appreciate donations of any of the following supplies:

  • Blankets – new or moderately used acrylic blankets (please no velour, fleece or handknitted throws as they are easily shredded by the hounds)
  • Carpet Remnants – clean, sturdy carpeting that can be cut down to size and used for kennel padding
  • Crates – used crates for resale and foster home use
  • First Aid Supplies – gauze pads, vet wrap, adhesive tape, triple antibiotic
  • Cleaning Supplies – washing detergent, bleach and disinfectant cleaners, dog-safe shampoo, hand soap, garbage bags, paper towels
  • Office Supplies – copy paper, postage stamps, #10 envelopes, 9×12 envelopes
Leave a Legacy

You can make a legacy gift to Greyhound Friends. Whether you think of yourself as rich, poor, or somewhere in between, your gift can make a difference. Even a small amount can have a big impact over time.

Some people think they must choose between leaving a gift to their family or their favorite charity. You can do both, and some charitable gifts may even save your family money by decreasing inheritance taxes.

Please read our Estate or Planned Giving flyer for some ideas about making bequests and other planned gifts to support our greyhounds for years to come. You may wish to consult an estate or tax attorney to explore your options further.
