Meet the 2015 Calendar Winners

Dear Friends,

Our new calendar is dedicated to greyhound love, a love which sometimes means terrible loss. In June, our dear little greyhound Zoe passed away at the age of twelve. She was one of the lucky ones – rescued from the racing industry and happily spending her last years in a comfy bed instead of a racetrack cage. Our 2015 Greyhound Freedom Calendar celebrates her sisters and brothers all around the world, some of whom are still waiting for that second chance.

This year's cover dog Phoenix was saved from racing at Florida tracks and now enjoys the sun, fun and freedom of Florida beaches instead. Congratulations to greyhound mom, Brooke Botterill of Orlando.

We are also pleased to announce the other winners of this year's contest. Here are the greyhounds chosen to represent specific months or who appear in full page format elsewhere in the calendar:

Calendars cost $20 plus s/h. Order five or more and receive a 25% discount, too. Estimated shipment date is Monday, November 3.

We believe that greyhounds should grow up in families and receive the same love that other dogs do. The goal of GREY2K USA Worldwide will be realized when all the greyhounds finally come home.

Thanks for supporting these efforts! Order your calendar now and then get ready for another big year of greyhound advocacy across the globe.
