Hi, my name is Howie, aka This is How.
and I am ready to go to my forever home. Even though I am a big boy,I love to cuddle and get tummy rubs. My manners are very good because I aim to please, and when I go for my walks, I stay right next to my foster mom. There are a lot of greyhounds in this house and they all seem to love me and that ain't bad.
Unfortunately, I have skin allergies but, fortunately, they are under control. I receive allergy shots once each week and would be the perfect companion for a human who does the same. We could compare notes.
FastFriends' new Fundraiser, the Scrips Program! We are so excited to be able to present our new fundraising opportunity! FastFriends has teamed up with UnitedScrip to offer our volunteers and supporters the chance to purchase gift cards for hundreds of retailers and restaurants; for each card purchased, FastFriends will receive a donation of a percentage of the value of the card! For more details, visit our Scrips' page.
If you didn't get a chance to purchase one of the 3,000 shirts at the picnic, it's not too late! You can now buy them from our online store! Only $20 each, and all profit goes to support greyhound adoption!
We need foster homes!!! If you’re even slightly willing to be talked into fostering… need to hear more information, ask questions, please contact us. We’ve got a bunch of great foster homes, but they’re full. Our picnic and major adoption event is coming up; this is a great opportunity for us to adopt out our foster dogs. We have dogs ready to go into foster homes (coming out of Mt SAC) as soon as we can find those homes for them. And we’re getting urgent emails from our contacts at the track, that many dogs are waiting for us in the pet kennel. We can’t bring them into retirement without more foster homes. We bring in as many greyhounds as we have foster homes for. We know there are many dogs waiting, but we don’t have many homes available . If you can foster, please contact Deb. . First time foster homes are always welcome! Let's make this a happy retirement day for as many hounds as we can.
