We Need Foster Homes!!!

If you’re even slightly willing to be talked into fostering and need to hear more information, and ask questions, please contact us. We’ve got a bunch of great foster homes, but they’re full. Our picnic and major adoption event is coming up; this is a great opportunity for us to adopt out our foster dogs. We have dogs ready to go into foster homes (coming out of Mt SAC) as soon as we can find those homes for them.  And we’re getting urgent emails from our contacts at the track, that many dogs are waiting for us in the pet kennel.  We can’t bring them into retirement without more foster homes.  We bring in as many greyhounds as we have foster homes for.  We know there are many dogs waiting, but we don’t have many homes available .  If you can foster, please contact Terry Marinello.  First time foster homes are always welcome!  Let's make this a happy retirement day for as many hounds as we can.

Scrips Program

FastFriends' new Fundraiser, the Scrips Program! We are so excited to be able to present our new fundraising opportunity! FastFriends has teamed up with UnitedScrip to offer our volunteers and supporters the chance to purchase gift cards for hundreds of retailers and restaurants; for each card purchased, FastFriends will receive a donation of a percentage of the value of the card!

This link should allow you to navigate to the area you need, whether it is to sign up, or sign in.

2014 Membership Drive

2014 Membership Drive - help us help the hounds! The cost to nurture greyhounds from the track to their new homes is increasing faster than our fundraising efforts can match. Your membership support will enable us to continue helping these magnificent animals find the loving homes they deserve. For complete details, please see our membership brochure.
