How you can help

Donation levels, options, and memberships

MGPS relies on donations for a significant chunk of its operating budget. These donations directly help the hounds by funding food, medical treatment, kennel supplies, and salaries for staff members. Because of that, MGPS has many options for people who want to support the greyhounds.


Adopting a greyhound is one avenue for supporting MGPS. Not only will you help provide a greyhound with a loving retirement home, but the cost of the adoption fees goes to helping other greyhounds waiting for a forever home.


For a donation of $25 per year, you can become a member of MGPS. This must be renewed yearly, but as a member you receive the opportunity to use the fenced-in field at MGPS in Augusta, and a subscription to MGPS's quarterly newsletter: The Greyhound Express. Membership is not automatically renewed. Click here to join


For a donation of $30 per month, you can adopt-a-crate and sponsor a retired racing greyhound waiting for a forever home. The money from this option is used for daily feeding, medical needs, and upkeep. Participants receive a letter of thanks, a photo of the dog you've helped that month, and the satisfaction of knowing you helped a greyhound while he was waiting for a loving home.
