Quilt Raffle

This fabulous quilt has been pieced and quilted by Ricky Polcer. The quilt is 86 inches square with the front side having 36, 12” square panels and the other side having 3 panels that are 18” high and 14” wide. Panels are from greyhound themed clothing (t-shirts) donated by Greyhounds Unlimited volunteers. (Items were donated when they became too small for the volunteer to wear - LOL)

This quilt is being offered for you to be able to show your support for the myriad of expenses associated with the Greyhound rescue such as veterinary, housing, general rehabilitation costs and ultimately finding a loving permanent home for them.

Beckett

Beckett arrived in rescue in June with a cloudy, enlarged left eye. GU’s vet diagnosed it as a perforated cornea and stated she had lost all sight in that eye.

Recently we consulted with an Animal Ophthalmologist to see what options, if any, existed to improve Beckett’s eye. In addition to the trauma to the cornea, which is degenerative, she has glaucoma as a secondary condition.

Glaucoma can be caused by trauma or infection and there is no effective cure for this disease. The pressure in her eye is 48 mmHG and it should be 15 mmHG. The pressure causes pain in the eye. Even with consistent eye drop treatment there is a chance the eye will need removal in the future.

After reviewing the patient summary from the Ophthalmologist, GU’s vet recommends removal of her eye.

Please consider helping us defer the cost of her eye surgery and take a chance at winning this gorgeous quilt by purchasing some raffle tickets.

All About Erin — The Velcro Hound with Eyes for You

Erin

She has fur like velvet; you won't be able to stop touching it, and that's fine with her. She loves to look into your eyes while you're petting her; she's definitely a Velcro dog. This petite brindle five-year-old will gladly crawl into your lap and into your heart.

Erin walks well with an easy-walk harness in quiet neighborhoods, but she will look to you for protection from those big noisy trucks! Her favorite trick at home is to empty the toy basket and carry the toys all over the house. She loves playing and being with other Greyhounds, and a house with one Greyhound already would be a special bonus for her.

Erin is looking for a very special home to love and protect her. She was born with a condition called "megaesophagus, " and so she will need to be fed several times daily with small meals of high-quality canned food, mashed to a soft consistency. She takes a medication at breakfast and dinner to control the condition. This will enable her to digest her food and stay healthy.

A diagnosis of megaesophagus used to be a death sentence. Severe cases would make it impossible for the dog to hold down food and water. Fortunately, Erin's condition is well-controlled. She knows her routine and is happy to cooperate with anyone taking care of her.

She needs someone who will be at home during the day to feed her. There is a financial commitment as well, due to the extra cost of the food. She will also need to be prevented from eating extra food outside of feeding times. So, no sharing and only certain kinds of limited snacks for her.

We know that there is a perfect family (maybe yours?) waiting for Erin. Someone is ready to love her and commit to taking care of her, for all her life. If that's you, Erin is ready.

If you would like to donate for her continued care, please make your donation here or go to https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=EB3MNP7JLY972

If you would like to consider adopting Erin, please contact jpvandehaar@verizon.net. As always, we thank you for your continued support.

Help by becoming a foster home!

Toy Hoarding Greyhound
She is quite comfortable in her new foster home...
We also hear that she has a toy-hoarding problem...

We are still in dire need of foster homes for our incoming hounds. Foster homes are the bridge that leads to a forever home for our adoptable hounds, giving them a head start on getting accustomed to living in a home instead of a kennel, teaching them all the new and wonderful things they will encounter in a home that they may never have seen before.

If you are ready to give fostering a try, please send an email to mickynielsen@att.net. One of our foster coordinators will contact you to talk about fostering and how you might be able to help, what your obstacles might be and how we might overcome them together. We all want this to be a successful experience for you and your new foster!
