Special thanks to the Tippet Foundation for their recent $20,000 grant to the Greyhound Adoption Center’s Specialty Medical Care Program that supplies surgery and advanced veterinary care to any dog with a serious injury or illness. We would not be able to save so many injured greyhounds without this valuable support, part of the $95,000 we spend each year on medical care.
GAC received $15,000 from Birdies for Charity, a PGA tournament in Ohio sponsored by the John Deere company. Anyone can pledge from a few cents to a few dollars for every birdie scored by the event’s pro golfers. At the end of the tournament, birdies are tallied and pledges are collected. Thanks to GAC volunteer Joanne Cashman who rallied 193 GAC fans to fill out pledge cards in the spring. All money raised goes straight to the hounds.
