Money puts gas in the vans that bring the greyhounds up to Cincinnati. It pays for the veterinary bills and the medications. It puts brochures in the hands of potential adopting families, and promotes the organization in the community to raise awareness.
We are grateful for every dollar that is donated, and strive to spend it as prudently as we can. Every dollar is stretched to maximize its benefit to the organization and to the greyhounds we are working to place into adoptive homes.
There are times when we take on the responsibility of bringing an injured greyhound up to Cincinnati to rehabilitate it and prepare it for adoption. Though inspiring and rewarding, the financial cost of healing an injured greyhound can be sizable and unpredictable. We have established a separate special fund – For Sugar’s Sake – to raise money for the care of sick and injured retired racing greyhounds.
Racing can be tough on the body of a greyhound, and unfortunately, not all injured racers receive the level of care they need to heal from an injury. Other times, the very basic veterinary care received at the track doesn’t catch a pre-existing condition before the racer is retired and send up to Cincinnati. That’s where Queen City Greyhounds comes in.
Queen City Greyhounds established the “For Sugar’s Sake” fund in July 2010 to help raise money for the rehabilitation and care of sick and injured retired racing greyhounds. From time to time, QCG agrees to take on the responsibility of helping a racing greyhound, who would otherwise be euthanized, recover from their injuries and become available for adoption. These dogs, though ultimately making wonderful loving pets, cause QCG to incur additional costs that would not normally be associated with the rescue of a healthy greyhound dog.
Please consider a donation to the For Sugar’s Sake Fund to help give these special greyhounds a chance at a healthy and happy retirement they would not otherwise receive. Please Email us when making a donation so we can make sure your gift has been properly credited to this specific fund.
