Thank you to all our donors who gave during our Winter Appeal from November 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. You joined with others to make it possible for us to continue to help greyhounds go from the track to the couch, and care for all their needs.  Especially medical costs which are about 80% of our operating budget each year. Add costs for food, kennel maintenance and transport and more than 95 cents of every dollar goes directly to the care of the dogs. 
Through the generosity of Marge and Steve Brenneke, each dollar you donated during our Winter Appeal was part of a matching donation!  Click the blue donate button below to make your donation. Don’t use Paypal? you can mail a check to us at GPW-NW PO Box 6524, Portland, OR 97228.

Your donations are the reason we are able to transport, house and care for the retired racing Greyhounds we bring into our program. We don’t turn away injured dogs, or senior dogs with health problems. Because of this we often have medical expenses that are significant. In addition to medical expenses we have to feed and care for the dogs until they reach their forever home. Greyhound Pet Adoption Northwest receives no tax dollars and is not affiliated with any national Greyhound organization. We are a 501c3 organization and your donations are tax deductible. Greyhound Pet Adoption Northwest reserves the right to use any funds received over and above the budget of the solicited purpose in our general fund to provide for the welfare of all the dogs in our care and the administration of our programs. 96.5 cents of every dollar you donate goes directly for food, housing and medical care of the greyhounds. We have no salaried employees, we are 100% volunteer-run organization.
