Each month we feature a different pet-related non-profit doing amazing things.

JANUARY: THE SIGHTHOUND UNDERGROUND
SHUG rehabilitates and rehomes retired racing greyhounds from no longer needed on U.S. tracks. They also rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome Sighthounds* from around the world who may have otherwise fallen through the cracks. Their goal is to build a network with rescue groups across the U.S. and the world to place these dogs into safe and loving forever homes.
In 7 years, they've placed 700 dogs across the U.S. and Canada.We think they're well on their way to turning their goal into a reality!
*What are Sighthounds? Dog breeds that primarily use their eyes (and speed!) to hunt, rather than their noses. Think Greyhound, Whippet, Afghan Hound, Scottish Deerhound, Irish Wolfhound, Italian Greyhound, Borzoi, Saluki…
