I'm waiting to hear from you to Sponsor A Hound. Please!
It makes us feel special that you noticed us.
Sponsor a Hound (SAH) Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Sponsor a Hound program?
Essentially it is a virtual adoption. Your donation provides support of a hound waiting for its perfect forever home.
Who participates in the Sponsor a Hound program?
Any individual or group who loves Greyhounds or is unable to adopt a Greyhound but still wants to help GFNC with our adoption efforts.
What is the minimum amount required to participate?
We gladly accept donations of any amount to help cover with our kennel expenses, however, the program's minimum is $10.
Do I need to commit to donating monthly?
No, you can contribute whenever you are able.
If I want to commit monthly, what is the easiest way to do so?
You can schedule regular donations through your financial institution’s bill pay service.
Can I pick the hound I want to sponsor?
Yes! If you wish to sponsor a specific hound, please add his/her name to the memo line on your check. If you prefer payment via PayPal, you can specify the hound’s name in the Message to the Seller field. When that hound gets adopted, we will transfer your sponsorship to another kennel guest. If you don’t wish to select a particular hound, you can request a gender choice and we will pick a hound for you. If you don’t select a particular hound or gender, we will choose a kennel guest for you.
How is my sponsorship recognized?
We want to thank those who Sponsor a Hound, and therefore your Name & City/State will be posted on your sponsored hound’s web page and Facebook profile. (Please notify us if you DO NOT want your Name and City/State displayed).
Are Sponsor a Hound donations tax deductible?
Yes. Because you receive nothing of value in return for your contribution (except for knowing you’ve made a difference!), it is tax deductible. GFNC will issue you a tax receipt for your donation. Please consult your tax professional for further assistance.
Thank you for your support of Greyhound Friends of NC through our Sponsor a Hound program! You make a difference for our Greyhounds.
