THE STORY:

Thank you for supporting me and Steel City Greyhounds!

My husband Drew & I have rescued two Treeing Walker Coonhounds, and our extended family includes a number of other rescue dogs. We know firsthand the extraordinary love rescues have for their "furever" homes -  especially those rescued from unfortunate situations. We can't imagine life without our special hounds, and I am honored to support efforts to improve the futures of retired racing greyhounds.

I will proudly carry your support with me on Race Day, and your donation will make a difference in the lives of these incredible dogs.

Thank you!

~Melissa

 

More about STEEL CITY GREYHOUNDS INC -

Be a runner who helps former runners.

Steel City Greyhounds (SCG) is a nonprofit corporation that promotes the adoption of retired racing greyhounds in the metropolitan Pittsburgh and surrounding western Pennsylvania regions.

We are an all-volunteer organization which means that 100% of the proceeds raised by the SCG Marathon Team goes to the organization's adoption program. The proceeds cover the costs associated with greyhound medical expenses, including spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations, and wellness exams, along with other adoption program operating costs.

Our goal is to raise money to help retired racers find forever homes. Greyhounds begin their lives like no other breed, destined to be raised in the racing environment. They are very competitive athletes, yet gentle and sensitive by nature, making them perfect canine companions. By running or donating you help these 45 MPH couch potatoes move from the kennel to a couch!
