Four different charities per year are chosen to be the recipient of these donations. We gratefully accept a $10 donation for a clip or $15 for a trim using a Dremel tool.

Current Nail Clipping Charity
Greyhound Rescue of New England is a small non-profit organization that was incorporated in 1999. They are dedicated to finding homes for retired racing greyhounds who are gentle, loyal and intelligent creatures. They make wonderful pets and adapt well to home life when granted the chance. The organization was created in one of the founder’s homes in Mendon, MA and place dogs in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, as well as all over New England.
In addition to finding permanent adoptable homes, other ways to help include providing a foster home (usually two to four weeks) until a space is freed up in the kennel, sponsor a dog's spay or neuter, help with a fundraiser or round up donations of cleaning or office supplies. Any and all support is appreciated!
