Greetings RDRP Newsletter
The holidays are fast approaching and RDRP is gearing up for a few FUN events this month and also making sure that all our greyhoundies are being cared for perfectly! It's GREYT volunteers and helpers like you that make it all possible. Every little bit helps, so if you can't join us out at the Adoption Center volunteering, you can foster, donate, or participate in other ways mentioned in this NOSEletter. From the Adoption Center Team to Amazon shopping, the hounds count on you! Please spread the word about RDRP and our magnificent greyhounds! Check it out here and inquire about all of our opportunities! 

Malonnie says we can always use.bleach, Fabuloso and dog biscuits plus we are always accepting donations to volunteer Ken’s project to get the good quality biscuits at wholesale from Bone Appetite.

RDRP is thankful for everyone involved in our mission. Have a safe and joyous Thanksgiving!

Have a Beautiful Thanksgiving Friends!
Fostering greys allows them a better chance at finding furever homes quicker! The life of a greyhound waiting for his or her forever home is often long, lonely & uncertain. People come and go… and the beautiful grey waits. RDRP is trying to get our kidz nueter/spay procedures done and we can not do that unless we have foster families following the procedure.

RDRP will help make your foster experience a meaningful one! Learn more about FOSTERING here...

Contact Geri, call her cell (685-4509) or email her at idlerichh@aol.com

Q- I want to make sure my greyhounds are secure and protected at all times. Can you tell me exactly how a Martingale collar should be worn? 

A- Thanks for asking! A Martingale collar is the only choice for us houndies as our heads and necks are so delightfully slim that regular collars could slip off easily! For rambunctious, slippery or strong pups I recommend a body harness instead. 

Here is a diagram with the details!
