Latest News

Shower for Retired Racers

We are undergoing a major capital improvement project for our kennel facility. Our project's purpose is to provide an integrated shower and laundry "wash" facility within the kennel. At present, the wash facilities are in a separate building, creating a major logistical problem. The new facilities are being built into an existing utility room within the kennel. Your support of our construction project will directly help us to ensure the highest level of sanitation in our kennel, and the cleanliness of our newly retired racers. 2016 celebrates over 27 years of finding loving forever homes for retired racing Greyhounds. Thank you for supporting our life's passion and helping us to Shower our retired racing Greyhounds With LOVE!      

2017 Celebrating Greyhounds Photo Submissions

The Greyhound Project collects photos for the Celebrating Greyhounds Calendars all year long, but the deadline for 2017 is April 1, 2016. Prints of any size are acceptable. Please do not crop or enlarge a smaller print. The original is usually clearer and easier to work with, and the calendar artist will have greater success at cropping and producing an enlargement than you will. Please label the back of each and every photograph you send. Include your name, address, the names of the dogs, and the name of the adoption group or other source of the dog. If you got your dogs directly from the racing owner or trainer, that's great; they are just as eligible for the calendars as dogs that are placed by an adoption group. The information should be printed on tape or a label before applying it to the back of the photo. Digital images must have been taken at the highest resolution that your camera will produce in order to be acceptable for printing. Please send us a print of the image as well as a copy of the image on a CD or thumb drive. Be sure to note on the label that the picture is also on CD or thumb drive, and include the file name. If you have photos that were taken by someone else, please obtain their written permission for us to use the photos. If the photo was taken at a nursing home or therapy program of some sort, please obtain written permission from the program. The photos for the calendars are selected by a group of greyhound adopters in April and May for the following year. The members of the group change from year to year, depending on who is available to gather around the big table and go through the photos. The people looking at the photos generally won't know the people or the dogs in the pictures. They are looking for the images that 'speak' to them and are in sharp focus. The selections for the wall calendar will be taken from photos submitted in horizontal, or "landscape" format, and the desk calendar requires vertical, or "portrait" format photos. Normally, we receive far more photos in landscape, so we have fewer to choose from in portrait. We receive hundreds of photos, so please limit submissions to your very best shots. Also, please send your photos in one package and, if applicable, on one CD or thumb drive. The Greyhound Project, Inc.  Attn: Calendar photos  P.O. Box 5239  Framingham, MA 01701  Photos that are not used in the calendars may be passed along to Celebrating Greyhounds Magazine to appear in a future issue. Sorry, but we are not able to return any photos or submitted media.
