2014 "Be an Angel" Campaign

angel 2014 painting

We are proud to once again offer this wonderful program that allows for you to be an Angel for one or all of the Greyhounds currently in our care.  Your donations help support 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.

Each $25 donation enters you into the drawing for this piece of art titled "Art and Soul". It was painted and donated by local artist Denise Saleh, one of our own volunteers.

Greyhounds have been the subject of many works of art throughout history, from ancient Egyptian and Greek urns, to European hunt scenes from the 18th and 19th century. Erte's famous 1930’s art deco piece, "Symphony in Black", depicting a slender woman with a leashed Greyhound, is one of the most widely reproduced pieces of art from that time period.

Curator of art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Gary Tinterow comments on this history and has an emotional connection to pieces as well, since he is a longtime Greyhound owner. The linear grace and strength of the Greyhound have long fascinated sculptors and painters. As pets in our homes, we have the privilege of a glimpse into the heart and soul of these magnificent dogs.
