Greyhound Pets, Inc.: Shelter+ Challenge Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The money was used to help with the transportation costs to move a load of 20 greyhounds from Florida to our group in Washington State.

In February we moved a load of 20 greyhounds from Florida to Washington State at the cost of $3,000 for the transportation. The $1,000 grant helped us greytly with being able to make that load happen.

How many pets did this grant help?

There were 20 greyhounds on the haul.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

One of the dogs on the haul was a boy by the name of Scupper. He had broken his front right leg racing. There was no money in Florida to do the surgery necessary on this boy. Because of this grant, we were able to get Scupper on the haul and get him the surgery necessary. Scupper is healing well and should be up for adoption in the next month.
