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.

  • Check out Kong, one of the most popular chew toys for greyhounds. Add in some peanut butter and freeze the Kong to create an irresistible treat for your hound. Typically, the extra large size works best for greyhounds. If your greyhound is very small (50 pounds or under), the large size may be better.
  • The Flexi (NOT the hard) Nylabone is an ideal chew toy for greyhounds. Be sure to get one that’s large in size as smaller Flexi Nylabones are a choking hazard for greyhounds.
  • Looking for a great stuffy for your greyhound? Check out the American Classic Large Rabbit (or other large American Classic toy designs).
  • Your greyhound may also love the stuffingless stuffies from Outward Hound. Many greyhounds love the Invincible Snake.
  • Basket muzzles are made specifically for greyhounds and similarly built dogs. Here’s where Jacqueline buys hers; in the very least, check out basket muzzles here so you know what they look like. Most greyhound adoption organizations will provide you with a basket muzzle when you adopt, but it’s always good to have an extra one handy.
