Greyhound Guardians

American Greyhound is a shining beacon of hope for greyhounds.  For over 15 years, American Greyhound has been making a difference in the lives of these noble animals.  We take them in when they have nowhere else to turn.  We provide the necessary veterinary care to assure their lives will be long and healthy.  Then we find them a home so they are able to live out their lives, as a pet who knows the love of an adoring family.

However, helping greyhounds is a long term commitment at American Greyhound.  We have begun a process of preparing for these long term efforts, and in 2010 used the proceeds of our first annual auction to fund a state-of-the-art, greyhound hauling trailer that allows us to be prepared on short notice, and move up to 24 hounds at a time, and into American Greyhound’s fostering program.

We are also planning for the long term sustainability of American Greyhound.  Our 2011 auction allowed us to create a reserve fund.  This reserve fund will allow us to be prepared when there is a track closing or some other crisis, which overnight creates an immense surplus of hounds, providing for temporary shelters, huge vet bills, and very large transportation costs.

But, our reserve fund will also provide something else . . . PERMANENCY!   Most importantly, we are preparing for the future of American Greyhound and its future leaders, who will be making a difference in greyhound’s lives long after we are gone.

Greyhound Guardians is a monthly membership which will help provide permanency, and assure that when a greyhound is in trouble…we’ll be there for them.
