A Freezin’ Good Reason for People with Warm Hearts to Support American Greyhound!

The 2018 Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for brave people to support American Greyhound in its mission to find homes for Greyhounds all over the Midwest. In keeping with our annual tradition, our plunge will occur in the morning on January 1, 2018 at North Avenue Beach, Chicago, IL. 
 
Participants who raise at least $25 in donations from friends, family and co-workers get the privilege of receiving a commemorative Polar Bear Plunge long sleeve t-shirt and entrance into a Post-Plunge Warm Up Party, plus the chance to win additional prizes. 
 
So if you’re ready to make a big difference in the lives of some unwanted greyhounds,  click here to build a fundraising page and start your New Year off with a splash. 
 
If you have any questions at all, please give me a call at (219) 263-8742 or send me an email at vicepres@americangreyhound.org.  
Happy Plunging!

Vice President and
Polar Plunge Coordinator
 
P.S.   Don’t forget about matching donation programs from your employers!  Many area companies offer this benefit but so few employees think to take advantage of it.  So check with your Human Resources Department and see if your company participates in this.  It’s an easy way to get those pledges increased!  American Greyhound is more than willing to fill out any necessary paperwork to help get the donation.

Finding Homes for Greyhounds in Need


American Greyhound, Inc. is a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation, dedicated to finding homes for retired racing greyhounds, lurchers, and other displaced hounds.  Our volunteers foster hounds, provide the necessary veterinary care, teach them what it means to live in a home as a companion animal, and find them good homes where they are able to live out their lives.
