The Annual Greytul Hearts Reunion Picnic will once again take place at Blue Marsh Lake (Dry Brooks Day Use Area) Lakeview Pavilion, Leesport, PA on Saturday, May 12, 2018 from Noon to 4 pm. As always, it is free to attend, we just ask that you please bring a covered dish/food item to share. We will provide hot dogs, hamburgers, soda and bottled water. We will once again have a basket raffle, greyhound games, a photographer to take pictures of your hounds for a small donation to Greytuful Hearts, a gift bag for each hound in attendance. We're planning a fun-filled day for you and your hound/s so we hope you'll mark your calendars and plan to attend!
For those who may not be on Facebook, we posted recently that the Greytful Hearts van has died. We purchased it almost two years ago for only $900 and that ol' van served us very, very well in the time we had it. It transported dozens and dozens of Greyhounds in that time, from picking them up from the hauler, to taking dogs to vet appointments and to Meet & Greets.
We absolutely can not function without a vehicle for transports and being without a van in this short amount of time already has been a nightmare. We have fosters who have vet appointments to get to and 3 new fosters are arriving from Kansas next week that need to be picked up from the hauler. These 3 new fosters will need to be transported to their vet appointments too, after they arrive.
We have found a Chevy Astro Cargo van that is in very good condition that the seller is asking $4500 and he is also willing to hold it for us for up to a month to give us time to raise the funds. Whether we are able to purchase this particular van or one similar, the price seems to be in the range of what is necessary to purchase a reliable vehicle that doesn't need any work and is a size that can accommodate multiple greyhounds.
A reliable transport vehicle is crucial to Greytful Hearts or we will no longer exist.
If you could please, please consider making a donation for us to raise the funds to purchase a van, we would be so extremely grateful.
Checks would be made payable to Greytful Hearts Greyhound Rescue and mailed to 107 Jalappa Rd Hamburg, PA 19526.
As I always say, we may be a small group but we get a heck of a lot accomplished....we ended 2017 with over 50 Greyhounds adopted into loving, forever homes. Please help us continue our work in 2018.
Thank you very much!
