I am one of the 51
Jackie’s Fund is an ongoing campaign to raise funds for greyhounds in our care with extraordinary injuries and illnesses. Jackie’s Fund gives hounds the chance they deserve for a new life as a beloved pet.
This year, Jackie's Fund has paid over $100,000 in veterinary care and treatment for 51 hounds with extraordinary injuries or illnesses! Hounds with broken legs, ruptured spleens, thyroid disorders, heart worms and a variety of other illnesses or injuries were healed.
The 51 received appropriate veterinary care and went on to live happy pet lives because Jackie’s Fund was there to help them in their time of need. Your donations will ensure SA Greys and Jackie’s Fund can continue the mission of “No Hound Left Behind” in 2016. Our goal is to raise $10,000 between now and January 1.
Thank you to our wonderful donors who have donated to holiday “51” Jackie's Fund drive so far:

Simon came to us with a severe lung infection. After months of tests and treatments, Simon was finally healthy enough to run and play. Jackie's Fund paid for Simon's veterinary expenses. Simon has made a complete recovery, and is a happy, bouncy boy. He is still looking for his forever family.

Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption provides quality care and nurturing while seeking loving, responsible adoptive homes for greyhounds. We educate the public about the needs and issues of greyhounds in the racing industry as well as greyhounds in the community and in adoptive homes.
Southern Arizona Greyhound Adoption is a Tucson-based all-volunteer, 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving forever homes for retired racing greyhounds from Phoenix to New Mexico. Since our incorporation in early 2012, we have placed over 350 greyhounds into forever homes.
Our greatest accomplishment is being able to rehabilitate injured or ill greyhounds. Since 2012, we have taken in over 75 greyhounds who suffered career ending illnesses or injuries. They are now enjoying pet life just like the hound on your couch and in your heart. These special needs dogs were helped by a special fund – Jackie’s Fund, which began when Jackie the original poster dog required costly veterinary expenses and recovery.
Transforming retired racing greyhounds, including injured or ill hounds, takes dedicated volunteers and resources. We expended over $100,000 in veterinary care and treatment in 2014 and in 2015. We know it was worth it every time we place a happy, healthy greyhound in a forever home. Join us in supporting the hounds any way you can.

We've had over $100,000 in vet bills this year dealing with injured Greyhounds, so winning the Grand Prize sure would help out a lot!
