The Heartship Medical Fund has been established to help GPI adopters with medical expenses for a GPI greyhound when an adopter is unable to find sufficient funds to provide necessary care. The Heartship Fund exists to help prevent returning a GPI dog due to a medical catastrophe and provides a resource that might help keep the greyhound at home and the family together.
Your donations can help your fellow adopters who have fallen on hard times. Donate on-line through our "Donate Now" button or by mailing a check. On-line, select the "Heartship Medical Fund" option or note on your check that you want your donation to go to the Fund. Your donations will go directly to helping your fellow adopters.
Eligibility and Guidelines
• The adopter must complete a Heartship Medical Fund Application.
• The dog must have been adopted from GPI.

Why not shop and help the dogs at the same time? Here are the various shopping programs that benefit GPI:
Have lots of spare change lying around? Why not donate it to the dogs? Pick up a take-out box at the kennel to collect spare change then drop off the container at the kennel in Woodinville in the designated collection box.
Many employers offer matching gift programs that double the charitable contributions made to GPI by their employees. Also, many employers offer volunteer matching programs that match employee volunteer hours with corporate donations. Check with your employer.
If you need assistance, contact our Treasurer (Robin James).
