My husband and I have been involved with rescuing greyhounds and an occasional lab mix for years. At the moment we have six greyhounds and our Watson - a special needs labx miraculously saved by Tucson Cold Wet Noses from the 'e-list' at Pima County pound. We had nine at one time, but are now holding firm (or so we say today) with this crew.
SOOOOO since I am not adopting any more greyhounds, and there are so many worthy organizations that are constantly in need of funding, I was looking for another way to support greyhound rescue and adoption.
I have donated custom pet portraits in years past and will continue to do so, but I recently found a passion for quilting, of all things, and decided that might be a way to support more groups that save these wonderful hounds from injury and death after racing. So Galgos Jubilados Designs was born and now I donate quilts for auction/fund raising.
Below are some of the quilts I have designed, created and donated to be sold or auctioned to raise money for greyhound groups. Each one is unique and often designed around a T-shirt or logo from the group.
Past organizations supported include:
