Chewy Wishlist

We also have a wish list of needed supplies on – see how you can help here:

Drop Off Kennel Supplies

If you prefer, you may drop off supplies of Purina Pro Plan Focus Sensitive dog food (dry & canned) & Rescue One-Step Disinfectant Cleaner & Deodorizer, bleach, dish soap, laundry detergent, paper towels & TP, waste pickup bags & trash bags, blankets, stamps, dog treats, leashes & martingale collars anytime during our open hours.

Employer Match

Does your employer match your charitable giving? Please inquire, so you can multiply the impact of your gifts to Greyhound Friends.

We are registered with Benevity/Bright Funds, which many companies use to manage their matching gifts. Of course we’re also happy to complete any forms your employer uses for their match program. Please email or mail your employer’s forms to us at 167 Saddle Hill Rd, Hopkinton, MA 01748.

Organize a Drive or Fundraiser

Whether it’s your friends & neighbors contributing to your personal Facebook fundraiser appeal, or a club activity like Scouts or a community service group collecting dog food, treats and blankets – when people get together to help, they can make a big impact for good. If you’re not sure what to choose, please call or email our director, Terri Shepard, to discuss your ideas.

Remember a Loved One with a Tree of Life Leaf

You can memorialize a loved one with their name engraved on a hand-wrought leaf installed on the beautiful tree that greets all kennel visitors in our reception area.

Sculpted by local metal artist Eduardo Amaral, the tree and leaves are a lasting and meaningful memorial. Please email for an order form with all the details. Leaves are $300 each, with all proceeds supporting adoption, of course.

Planned and Legacy Giving

If you’d like to make helping animals a part of your legacy, either through planned giving strategies now, or through inclusion in a trust or will, please consider designating Greyhound Friends as a beneficiary.

Through substantial legacy gifts, donors have been making lifesaving work possible for close to 40 years. We are here for dogs who need us – and will be here into the future, since the need continues.

Please contact us – or ask your estate attorney or financial planner to get in touch – for any information that will assist in your planning.
