How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Through the efforts of GPI volunteers, over 5,200 retired racing greyhounds have found rewarding lives as companions in family homes. As Greyhound Racing venues diminish there are periods of intense need for care of large numbers of retired racers while they await adoptive families. GPI is one of the largest, best equipped and supported organizations able to assist in meeting those needs.

Funding Needs

Funding is needed in both financial and ‘in-kind’ categories. Operation of “Hern Greyt Works” kennel is the largest continuing funding need. This facility requires well over half of the operating budget. Donations of quality ‘in-kind’ items for auction at fund raising events are always appreciated. Other ‘in-kind’ items such as quality feed, maintenance materials, and administrative supplies are always in need. It takes $45.00 just to feed a Greyhound for one month. Even with discounted veterinary costs, treatment and medications require significant resources in order to keep all the GPI hounds healthy and happy. Insurance, taxes and licensing costs have increased and continue to do so. The need for administrative hardware like a new computer network, workstations, and storage facilities are not yet funded. Capital improvement projects awaiting funding; fencing, road and parking area surfacing, and In-door multipurpose room outfitting.

Principal Officer

Mrs. Moira Corrigan

BIO

Professional experience in corporate management and over 10 years of active involvement in greyhound rescue at all levels of the effort. GPI's president has organized a team of volunteers in a manner that maximizes contributions from individual skill sets.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Having a beloved dog as a companion at some point in life is a nearly universal experience among Americans. The special qualities of the Greyhound and its ancestry have secured its position as a most highly regarded canine companion for thousands of years. In recognizing the polite companionship and gentle spirit of the Greyhound, we must ensure that after a short career as high performance athletes, Greyhounds are given the care they so richly deserve in reward for centuries of loyalty and companionship to man. More so than with any other member of the canine community, the presence of a Greyhound is heart lifting. Give it a try. I dare you to touch one and meet its gaze.

Moira Corrigan
CEO, Greyhound Pets, Inc."
