Star City Greyhounds

Our Care Needs

We are a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and support of Greyhounds. Day-to-day operations cost approximately $1 per dog per day, but that doesn't begin to address the veterinary care for dogs with broken legs and other special needs.

Generating donations and contributions, getting involved in fund-raising and helping to write grants are all ways that you can help as a volunteer. If everyone helps a little, there's no end to the ways we can help these gentle, affectionate creatures.

Shelter Beds

We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our boarding facilities because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort.
