I take pride in being a runner who helps former runners.
Have you had a pet that brought you joy in the darkest times? Showed you unconditional love when you needed it most? These are some of the special things I have appreciated about animals. To express my love for animals, I have joined the Steel City Greyhounds (SCG) team in their mission to rescue Greyhound race dogs and provide them with the care and love they need. SCG is a nonprofit corporation that promotes the adoption of retired racing greyhounds in the metropolitan Pittsburgh and surrounding western Pennsylvania regions. Our goal is to raise money to help retired racers find forever homes. My goal is to fundraise $350 which covers the costs associated with greyhound medical expenses, including spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations, and wellness exams, along with other adoption program operating costs.
Greyhounds begin their lives like no other breed, destined to be raised in the racing environment. They are very competitive athletes, yet gentle and sensitive by nature, making them perfect canine companions. Your support makes it possible to move these 45 MPH couch potatoes from the kennel to a couch!
