What’s a less adoptable greyhound? When it comes to greyhound adoption, seniors, black, special needs, and male greyhounds are often overlooked. In this episode, find out why that is––we’ll also dispel many of the myths.
Here comes Autumn! And with it, comes a dozen major events happening in New Jersey, and one in New York, throughout the season. If you’re not from the NJ area, you may want to listen as you may get some “pawesome” fundraising ideas for events you can implement within your greyhound adoption organization. And if you are from the New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Delaware area, we’re looking forward to see you and our events this Fall!

Bucket lists are for the living: a to-do list of experiences one wants to enjoy in his or her lifetime. Bucket lists aren’t just for people––they’re becoming more popular for dogs, too. In this episode, discover how you can start creating––and implementing––a bucket list for your greyhound. Plus, we give you twenty ideas to help get you started.
Check out Bring Fido, an international database of hotels, restaurants, and other venues where dogs are welcome.
Truly, the most difficult topic for us to cover and for you to hear: knowing when it’s time to let your greyhound go. In recognition of Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day (August 28), this episode explores the process of making an informed decision, what to expect during euthanasia, what happens after, and more.
For at-home euthanasia of your dog, ask your veterinarian for a referral. If s/he can not provide one, visit the In Home Pet Euthanasia Directory (USA, Canada, and UK).
This is a very special, quick episode. In just 5 seconds, you can help greyhounds placed in loving homes by Greyhound Friends of New Jersey (GFNJ) earn a $20,000 grant from Healthy Paws Pet Insurance. We’re competing against ONLY 5 other dog (and a cat) adoption groups for the grant; it’s based on a voting system. Please vote for Apple Jack, a greyhound who sustained a leg break in her final race. Apple Jack’s leg was repaired by the track veterinarians; she also needed innovative therapy, provided by GFNJ, once she arrived in NJ.
