Greyhound Friends in the News
The Whisker Walk is Here!
Each year Greyhound Friends participates in the Whisker Walk. This year the Whisker Walk is scheduled for Sunday, June 9, 11am-3pm at the Lancaster Fair Grounds. (More information and details at www.whiskerwalk.org).
Whisker Walk is all about families and their pets - promoting adoptions, teaching responsible pet ownership, and educating the community about rescue groups and shelters.
Questions on Greyhound Friends' participation in this event can be directed to Cyndy at ccurls @ aol.com. We are also looking for a few more volunteers to help staff our booth. If interested, please email Cyndy.
Thanks for your support!
Donations Needed - Bedding, Food, Transport Costs
If you're thinking of stopping by to visit Greyhound Friends, to run your hounds in our fenced field or just to say hello, we could really use more bedding for the dogs (blankets, carpeting, sheets) as well as dog food (Iams or other good quality kibble, rawhide chews, canned food, rice, olive oil, etc.). Supplies of both are running a bit low right now. Many thanks if you can drop off a donation!

Collars, Leashes, Coats for Limerick Animal Welfare
Greyhound Friends' collar/leash/coat drive for Limerick Animal Welfare is ongoing. www.limerickanimalwelfare.com Please bring or send to Greyhound Friends any collars/leashes and coats you would like to donate. We will mail them over. The items don't have to be new......we will send whatever is donated. Two large shipments have already been sent and received; LAW is very grateful that their greyhounds have warm coats during an unusually cold spring. Our mailing address is 167 Saddle Hill Road, Hopkinton, Massachusetts 01748. If possible, please include a few dollars with your leashes/collars/coats to help us cover shipping costs.
