|WELCOME TO GREYHOUND PETS OF AMERICA- SPRINGFIELD, MO!|
Greyhound Pets of America-Springfield, MO is a volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing information about and promoting adoption of retired racing greyhounds. We also promote cooperation with other adoption programs nationwide to further the placement of greyhounds as pets into responsible loving homes.
Alane Shultz is the founder of the local GPA chapter and has had retired racing greyhounds as pets for 30 years. She has facilitated greyhound adoptions since 1992.
Greyhounds are clean, quiet and have no hereditary health problems. Their exercise requirements are surprisingly low - they prefer to curl up and have you pet them! Loving and loyal, your greyhound is your fast friend for life!
Senior girl Katrina will be 9 in December. She is happy, loving, friendly, gets along with other dogs, and loves people. She would be good with kids, but NO CATS. Katrina has awesome teeth, and will be free to the right home.

Beautiful Greyhound Christmas cards are available for order now!
"This Christmas Card was made by adding the Christmas Star to an original Yvonne Sovereign watercolor painting I own. I won this at the art auction at Dewey Beach in 2002. Yvonne has gladly given us permission to use it for our charity fundraiser," says Alane Shultz, president of GPAMO.
100% of the $ made from the sale of these cards will go to the Mobile Greyhound Park Adoption program run by Lil Buchanan. Lil ships many Greyhounds throughout the US to Greyhound adoption groups. The cost of hauling is $80 per Greyhound. This money will help her continue their adoption efforts. Tis the season! It's better to give than to receive! Help some Greyhounds get to their Forever Homes.
The cards are 5"x7" with Maxwell Opaque white smooth envelopes. There are 10 cards per pack. Cost is $11 per 10-card pack. Shipping is $7 for up to 40 cards and envelopes.
Please share this with all your Greyhound friends!
