Food Weight Circles (Pro Plan)
The weight circles are located on the top side of the bag. They are marked by a perforated line.
Crates! Greyhounds need crates that stand at least 35" or 36" high. These are no longer being sold in local pet stores.
- Vacuum cleaners! We are a bit rough on vacuums and they end up dying quickly. We'd gladly take your used one when you get a new one.
Laundry detergent and dryer sheets (the most inexpensive is fine)
Intercom system to run between house and kennel
Treats - hard biscuits preferred or beef soup bones which are a great treat for the dogs
Blankets (comforters from Salvation Army or Goodwill are great!)
- GPS Collar(s)
PineSol cleaner (pine scented, please!)
We're the greyhounds waiting for homes at the GAO kennel. We know that, sometimes, someone wants to do something for us and asks our human friends what we could use. Sometimes, a classroom or scout troop will get together to make a project out of doing something for us or children will ask for donations as gifts for their birthday parties. People are SO nice!. We've found these GREAT toys that keep us busy and last for a long time. It gets pretty boring, lying in our crates. The toys and inserts are sold separately but each pair of inserts usually lasts a couple of weeks, cuz they're really hard. We asked our human friends to send this, now, because the company is having a sale. If enough people get one for us, pretty soon, we'll have one for each of us in the kennel (usually about 25). Of course, we can always use treats (any kind), too.
you for your support!
Adoption of Ohio Inc., our greatest need is
for Sponsors for greyhounds awaiting placement in loving
homes. The average stay for each greyhound at GAO
Inc. after they retire from the racetrack is 2-4
weeks. This gives the greyhound time to be spayed or neutered,
recover from the surgery, and begin to become acclimated
to home life. Some stays are shorter and many are longer
to allow an injured or neglected greyhound time to regain
his or her health before placement.
are always needed to help defray the significant costs associated
with readying a retired racer for placement. Each dog arriving
at GAO Inc. is spayed or neutered, given vaccinations
for distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, parvovirus,
bordatella and rabies, tested for heartworm, de-wormed, and given
a thorough dental cleaning. Additional costs are continuously
incurred until the retiree is placed in a new home. During this
period, the cost of maintenance care is approximately $15.00
can be as limited or as extensive as you wish. You may sponsor
a greyhound for a week or two of maintenance or for his or her
entire stay at Greyhound Adoption of Ohio Inc.,
from surgery to placement. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
