Pepper and her pups, picture provided by Cathy from Oklahoma

Mother greyhound named Pepper with litter of 7 pupsIn the heart of Oklahoma, a compassionate individual reached out to Greyhounds Unlimited to help secure a brighter future for a furry family in need: a mother dog accompanied by her eleven adorable puppies. They were destined to become coyote hunters, and she didn't want that life for them. Looking at those sweet little faces, we just couldn't let it happen either. So, of course, we immediately said yes, we can help. Two of our great volunteers rented a van and made the all-day trip to pick up Pepper and her pups and transport them to Texas. Now, their journey begins, but not without its challenges. Each step towards their well-being comes with a cost – a cost we aim to alleviate with your support.

The "Oops" litter, as they've come to be affectionately known, embodies the resilience and hope found in every wag of a tail. Despite their humble beginnings, these puppies and their devoted mother have shown unwavering spirit. However, their path to health and happiness is paved with financial obstacles. On average, our cost is over $900 per hound for normal veterinary care.

Our mission is clear: to provide the "Oops" litter and mom with the care they deserve. We refuse to let financial constraints hinder their journey towards loving forever homes. To achieve this, we've set a fundraising goal of $12,000. We will be holding several pop-up fundraisers over the next few months to help us reach this goal. This will cover essential vetting costs and ensure each pup receives the medical attention they require to thrive.

Your support is the cornerstone of our efforts. Every dollar donated brings us closer to our goal and closer to securing a brighter future for each member of the "Oops" litter. Your generosity will directly impact the lives of these pups, offering them a chance at a happy, healthy life.

The journey of the "Oops" litter is a testament to the power of compassion and community. Together, we have the opportunity to rewrite their story – one of resilience, hope, and unwavering support. Your generosity has the power to transform their lives and pave the way for a brighter tomorrow. Join us in making a difference and helping these deserving pups find their forever homes.

More pictures are coming soon, and we will be needing foster homes. If you are interested in fostering Pepper or one of the puppies, please contact Susan Lemon at info@greyhoundsunlimited.org.

Foster homes needed!

Aimee

Greyhounds Unlimited is in constant need of foster homes for our greyhounds. By opening your home to foster, you help these dogs transition from kennel life to the experience of living inside a home. It can be a deeply rewarding, albeit occasionally challenging, experience.

If you're considering fostering, please reach out to mickynielsen@att.net. One of our foster coordinators will connect with you to discuss fostering and how you can contribute. We'll address any obstacles together to ensure a successful experience for you and your new foster companion!

We can always use various supplies! Cleaning, toys, treats, etc.

Aimee

Our Hounds in the Kennel preparing or waiting for their Foster Home or Forever Home are in need of toys! You can drop these off at one of our Meet & Greets or you can purchase in our GU Wish List and have it sent directly to the kennel.

If you would rather not purchase on Amazon, you can drop new items (or gently used toys with no stuffing) off at any of the Meet & Greets. You can also send it to: 393 Kerfoot Rd, Gunter TX 75058
