Done racing, enjoying life

We’re going around the final stretch for Arizona Greyhound Rescue.  During the month of October, all the sales of Beading Divas bracelets benefit AGR.

AZ Greyhound Rescue is located in Marana and serves all of Pima County and south east Arizona as well as Pinal County and parts of Maricopa County.

AGR gets retired racing greyhounds from the dog track in South Tucson as well as other greyhounds who have raced in Arkansas, Florida, Texas, and Tijuana, Mexico and from breeding farms all over the country. AGR also occasionally takes in greyhound mixes from PACC and other rescues throughout the state.

If you don’t want a bracelet, maybe you want to sponsor a dog? You can also get involved by providing foster care or volunteering at the kennel or a meet-and-greet. There are lots of ways to help out and it’s good for your psyche and soul.

Follow this link for where to buy bracelets in Tucson and online. Bracelets cost $20 and every penny of it goes directly to AGR. For online bracelets, add $4 S&H.

Bracelet Fundraiser Continues for Greyhounds of Verde Valley, AZ 2011/01/15

Black is beautiful...Greyhounds of the Verde Valley

Beading Divas to the Rescue continue to sell bracelets for the Greyhounds of Verde Valley during the month of January 2011.  We’ve added more bracelets to our Etsy site so you can buy them online for $20 (all of it goes to GVV) plus $3 for S&H which pays our costs to mail.

Here a story from Greyhounds Verde Valley:

Did you know that black greyhounds are the hardest to rehome?

Unfortunately statistics prove that black greyhounds are the hardest to home. Why? A black greyhound in superb condition is absolutely stunning. A black greyhound in need of some T.L.C. is unfortunately not so stunning and they can look far worse than other colors. Having a black coat means that curable problems like dandruff, bald patches or simply a winter coat can be off-putting, everything seems to show more on a black coat. However with a little TLC you will have a gleaming, shiny beauty.

One Sedona family is bucking this trend and currently has six (yes that is six!) black greyhounds – to keep their black Labrador rescue dog company.

“We always heard that black dogs were less adoptable so we told GVV that we would take all the black greyhounds they get.  Who knew we would end up with so many – but they are such a joy and I tell my wife that greyhounds are like potato chips – you can’t have just one.”

The black greyhound gang (and Nik) are pictured at the Kanab, Utah gathering in 2010. These black dogs have color coded collars so you can tell who is who quickly.

Here’s a beautiful bracelet to complement your black greyhounds or that black outfit you like to wear. (photo: Michelle Caillet)
