NON-PROFIT OF THE MONTH
Each month we feature a different pet-related non-profit doing amazing things.
This month, to celebrate Sierra's birthday, we're recognizing the adoption group that placed her with us.
JANUARY: THE SIGHTHOUND UNDERGROUND
The Sighthound Underground (SHUG) is a 100% volunteer rescue formed to rescue, rehabilitate, re-home, and support Sighthounds* around the world.
SHUG brings in dogs from across the U.S. (including retired racing greyhounds and other Sighthounds who have been abandoned or need to be re-homed due to a wide variety of circumstances) and the globe. This mission is especially important for Spanish Sighthounds (Galgos and Podencos) who often depend on international adoption when they are no longer used for hunting.
You'll find "SHUG-er babies" in all 50 states and in Canada.
*Think Greyhound, Whippet, Borzoi (aka Russian Wolfhound), Saluki, Afghan Hound, Irish Wolfhound, Scottish Deerhound, Galgo...
