Donations

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 hounds outside of ownership.

Adoption

Adopting a greyhound is one avenue for supporting MGPS. Not only will you help provide a hound with a loving retirement home, but the cost of the adoption fees, $200 for males and $300 for females, goes to helping other hounds waiting for a forever home.

Membership

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

Adopt-a-Crate

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.

Calendar fundraiser

Each year, MGPS puts together a calendar of photos submitted by owners. The proceeds of the calendar sales ($15 each) go directly to MGPS. In addition, for a donation of $75, you can support the calendar as a sponsor. In return you'll receive a copy of the calendar, a letter of thanks, and a listing on the back of the calendar as well as a listing in the newsletter. If you're a business owner, this is the perfect avenue for supporting MGPS.Click here to order

Fundraisers

Fundraisers such as the annual open house, Gallivant with the Greys, calendar fundraiser, as well as many smaller fundraisers throughout the year benefit MGPS and its operating budget. Check back often, and visit the facebook page, for more details on how you can help.
