Helen Keller said, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much". Join us in remembering the hounds we have lost to cancers and add your support to the important research for the hounds we love and the hounds to come.

The cancers that most affect our Sighthounds include osteosarcoma, soft tissue sarcoma, hemangiosarcoma, lymphoma and mast cell cancer.  There are very few within the Sighthound community who have not been touched personally or through family or friends, by at least one of these cancers.  These deadly diseases rob us daily of the precious hounds that grace our lives.  A prevalent cancer affecting our hounds, hemangiosarcoma, is also a cancer of people, so these devastating diagnoses spread their destructive web to many more families beyond just our global Greyhound nation.
Our Sighthound nation is made up of so very many generous and varied individuals, adoption groups, service groups and the racing community.  Because of our collective love of Sighthounds, our global Sighthound community has come together for many years to help the hounds, change perceptions, and fight for their wellbeing in times of injury and illness.  We have gathered one another in our collective embrace to help each other in times of natural disaster, devastating illness, adversity and shared grief as a community when faced with the loss of a much loved human or hound and we have proven that there is strength in numbers.
We ask that you now, or once again, show your support through Hope for Hounds and The Auction, by helping raise the much needed funds for assisting with treatments for Sighthounds in conjunction with the important research by the University of Pennsylvania in finding the CURE for these dreaded diseases in our beloved hounds and loved ones.
