Hound Sponsorship



Just $30 a month will provide a month's worth of food and heart worm preventative for one lucky foster in the GC Program. Become a sponsor and help us give each dog the very best we can. We also appreciate donations of XL 48' long crates that we used in our foster homes. 

Here are the Basic FAQ's about our Sponsorship Program

Our sponsorship program is designed to be a way in which those members who cannot foster can supplement the sponsor2work our active foster homes do on a daily basis.

  • I've just sent in a foster sponsorship, but I see that 'my' dog was adopted today. What becomes of my donation? Sponsorship money received by our program will be used to purchase food and heart worm preventative for another hound that wasn't chosen by a sponsor. All donations WILL be spent on the hounds.

  • Do foster homes get any support if they aren't chosen by someone in the Sponsorship program? We supply dog food and supplies like foster crates and heartworm preventative as long as the dog remains in foster care. A few of our foster homes like to feed their own food and use their own supplies, but most are very grateful to have the food and supplies that our sponsors donate.

  • Why does the money need to come to GC instead of directly to the family? GC is a 501c3 non-profit organization, which means we can thank you for the donation by providing a tax deduction to you. By donating directly to us, you can keep the PayPal receipt for your accountant at tax time! We order the food and heart worm preventative in large quantities and we get a significant discount that our foster homes would not get if they purchased it themselves. So your donation goes farther this way.

  • Can I sponsor more than one dog at a time? Or for more than one month? Of course! You can sponsor in any way you like with GC. if you sponsor a dog for more than one month but it is adopted before the end of the first one, we typically apply that second month donation to another foster dog that hasn't had any sponsorships yet. if you'd prefer for us not to do that, just email Lisa and explain how you would like your funds to be used. We'll do the best we can to do so.
