FALL TRANSPORT KICKOFF FOR 2013!
HERE WE GO AGAIN!!
GRIN is happy to announce that in less than one week, we will begin our anticipated 12 Fall Transports from Sept 23 to Nov 18 that will bring a total of 36 lucky galgos and podencos to the USA! We have been so fortunate to continue to work with our friends in Spain and our friends here in the US to accomplish this amazing feat. Thanks to the following Spanish charities for continuing your work and for helping us help the plight of the Galgos and Podencos in Spain.
This Fall we are bringing dogs from : Galgos en Familia, Galgos del Sol, Ibizan Hound Rescue, 112 Carlota Galgos, Asssoc. Protectora Argos, Little Pod Foundation and one with the help of Maria Caseres.
GRIN also is happy to announce that several Greyhound groups in the US are now working with GRIN to rescue a few galgos and podencos and bring them into their existing groups twice a year. Thanks to Grateful Greyhounds of NY, Forever Homes NY, Greyhound Rescue and Rehab NY, Fast Friends Greyhound Rescue NH, Grateful Hearts PA, and Greyhound Companions of New Mexico.
Also a big thank you to the Lexus Project for their generous financial donations that have provided a way for many of these hounds to find a new life here in the states. They have made a huge difference in the numbers we have been able to bring!!
Also a big thank you to all our air patrons this Fall, some being veterans of international dog transport, and some first time helpers! We are so thankful that so many are willing to be the link that helps us bring the dogs home!! Marylou Hecht, Sharron Thomas, Cameron Lesko, Telma Shaw, Lisa Swartz, Sara Young, Lisa Lebeau, Don Baldwin, Amy Kahn and her son, Bernadette Koh, Noreen Richards, Lisa Schwartz, Zoe Moran, Raul Saez Pagan, Richard Rosenthal and Britta Betzin. All of you wonderful folks thank you for braving the airports, the travel and a little bit of stress, as well as your commitment to this wonderful endeavor!
And last but not least, thank you to our wonderful adopters who have opened their homes and hearts once again to the less fortunate hounds in Spain..We love you all!! And the dogs love you too!!
We are now expecting that things go as planned knowing that sometimes unexpected situations arise, but we hope with all our hearts that the dogs will be safe and our helpers safe and that all goes according to plans!!! Paws crossed and we will be updating each transport as it comes in on our Face Book page..Thank you everyone and here we go!!! Mil Gracias ah todos!
