Improving the lives of greyhounds, lurchers & mixed hounds one dog at a time


Timex is a 4 or 5 year hound from down south. He is a fun dog who does funny things and her really likes people. He really needs a space to run and a fenced yard would be best with a family that is around a lot. (508) 435-5969

Big Success!
The protest at the Irish Consulate in Boston went well on Thursday. The Vice Consul, Meg Laffan, agreed to meet with one of us, accepting a letter of protest from Louise Coleman director of Greyhound Friends Inc. Also in attendence were Stoddard Melhado (GHF Board President), and Bob Mahoney a long time greyhound adopter and supporter. The letter addressed our opposition to the Irish greyhounds going to Macau. Vice Consul Laffan was receptive and aware of the other protests happening around the world in recent days. She said she would convey our strong feelings to the appropriate officials in the Irish government. We passed out lots of information and thank you to everyone who showed up outside!

This adorable dog's racing name was Jill Frenchfries. Her personality is as precious as her name. She is only 2 years old, and has quite a bit of energy, but after a short walk she settles right down.

She loves standing in the warm sun on her walks with our volunteers and walks very well on a leash. Come today to take her out and get to know her.
