We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Danielle Duggan of Myersville, Maryland, for putting together a huge event August 2 to earn money for our organization. Danielle single handedly planned and executed the Mid-Maryland Model Madness event that took place at the Myersville Fire Hall. This event attracted a large number of people. Danielle’s efforts resulted in a donation of $1,066 to FFGR, Inc.!
We can appreciate how much work Danielle put in to make this amount of money to benefit our organization. We are grateful to adopters like Danielle who give so generously of their time to benefit our cause. Her donation came at an important time as each year it costs more to bring dogs in to our program.
Hats off and huge roooooooooooos to Danielle!
Since we established our organization, we have been faced with a continuing problem of what to feed our available greyhounds until they go into their forever homes. In addition, we receive questions constantly about what foods to recommend. With each year that’s gone past, more and more foods have been introduced to the market making it even more complicated to determine what to recommend and feed our fostered dogs. Not only that, we’ve witnessed many recalls of foods, have had to deal with dogs that develop food allergies and have had problems with dogs transitioning from track foods to commercial foods. We’ve recently researched how we can help all of the dogs coming in to our program and give them a good healthy start to their new lives.
We are announcing that we have decided to work with Life’s Abundance pet foods. This is a premium pet food that has wonderful ratings and has a good track record in terms of consistent high quality. In fact, Life’s Abundance foods are not available in pet food stores. The reason for this is that Life’s Abundance food is made in small batches and delivered to you fresh, generally within four to six weeks of being made.
All of our fostered greyhounds will now be eating Life’s Abundance foods. Since almost all of the dogs fostered in Florida are also eating Life’s Abundance foods, we know that the transition from Florida to Maryland will be seamless – with fewer digestive problems.
With each adoption, dogs will go home with a bag of this food. If adopters choose to continue feeding their dogs Life’s Abundance foods, our adoption group will receive a commission which will help us earn funds for our work.

Each year for the last five years, the good folks at Greyhound Pets of America/Maryland Chapter, have invited our organization to attend their annual picnic at Oregon Ridge Park in Hunt Valley, Maryland. We are a small organization and do not hold an annual picnic of our own. Therefore, it gives us an opportunity to meet people and sell some of our merchandise to attendees to earn much needed funds for our organization. If you like picnics and enjoy getting out with your hound(s) on a nice fall day to meet other adopters, please consider attending this fun event. Here are the details. We hope to see you there!
