Mini Episode: 5 Seconds, $20,000 for the Greyhounds

Vote for Apple Jack-–This is Important

 

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.

Vote for Apple Jack here. Then …

  • Click “Vote” under Apple Jack’s photo and story.
  • Scroll down the page and enter your state (folks, this looks to be only open to voters in the USA, but try it).
  • Click a button to prove you’re not a robot.
  • Click “Submit Vote.”

Every. Vote. Counts. Please help the greyhounds get this grant–it will make an incredible difference.
