It's time for another greyt auction! All proceeds go to helping broken leg dogs recover. We've got two sweeties that needed surgery this year: Jayden and Victor. Let's restock the fund so we can help many more! Auction ends May 19th at 10PM
Our Special Needs Greyhound, Dingo, has a Forever Home! Lucas and Karen, our long time members and foster family decided that they needed to add a new member to their family and a new "brother" for Mia. They met Dingo when he first arrived from FL and were instantly in love with him. At the time, Dingo went to another foster family to complete recovery of his broken leg.
With the discovery of Dingo's epilepsy, healed broken leg, and Panus (an auto-immune eye disease), Dingo needed several months to recover and get back on track. Even though Dingo had all these issues, Lucas and Karen researched all of it and told BRGA whenever he is ready to go "home" they would love to care for him!
That day arrived on March 31! Dingo greeted everyone with kisses and even cozied up to their other Grey, Mia.
A SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS to the entire family for adopting Dingo and giving him a wonderful and happy retirement!
BRGA's Special Needs Greyhound, Dingo, has a Forever home!! Thank you to all who donated and promoted Dingo!
Dingo's story has a happy ending and BRGA wants to thank all of you who have donated to help this fabulous Greyhound!
Dingo's start in retirement was fairly rough with the discovery of his epilepsy on top of his already healing broken leg. This resulted in several days of an ER visit and multiple trips to the veterinarian, medications, supplements, and special food. BRGA's cost ran over $2000 for Dingo's care. While in recovery of his epilepsy, BRGA found out he had an auto immune eye disease. This meant more trips to the vet, new medicine and management of that eye.
BRGA could not have done any of this without all of you who donated and participated in our special auction for Dingo. We'd like to thank you and let you know that your donations matter!!
100% of your money goes to help these Greyhounds in any way possible to secure them into a forever home.
BRGA would also like to give a special Thank You to our foster family, Dianna, her husband, Karl, and their daughter for taking such good care of Dingo with all of his special needs and making him a member of their home until a new one could be found. We are forever grateful for what you all have done on behalf of BRGA.
Congrats to Oscar who found his forever home this month! It's because of generous donations from BRGA members that we were able to sponsor his surgery and aftercare and bring him up to Virginia to enjoy retirement.

Welcome our newest foster dog, Mamacita! She was racing until just a few months ago when she broke her leg. BRGA helped pay for her surgery and she is currently recovering in her foster home. Once she is cleared by a veterinarian, she will be available for adoption. If you can help BRGA recover costs for repairing her leg, please donate to our broken leg dog fund.
