Board Members

Len Schollen Len Schollen President & Director Len lives in Oak Harbor, WA with his wife Judy and 2 Greyhounds Jackie, 7 (Craigslist find) and Epie, 5 (Superior Epic). Judy and I got involved with Greyhound Adoption in 2004 when we adopted URBlue a big handsome blue who was very timid as are most blues. Blue as we called him left us in 2012 with a heart attack, we also adopted our 4th foster Missy, (WW Fast Inez) at age 7, she was a bounce back and stayed with us until she was 14years 11 months. Over the years we have fostered in excess of 30 hounds mostly on the Sunshine Coast of BC.

Len is a retired inspector with Delta Airlines and Judy has retired from her Sewing Machine dealership and Quilt Shop in Minnesota. They are excited to take on this new challenge at the helm of NCGL. We anticipate a surge in available hounds due to scheduled track closures in the USA. And look forward to finding homes for them all.

They were initially introduced to the greyhound world by their then-16 year old daughter, who campaigned tirelessly to adopt one of these alluring dogs. Since then Di and John have been the companions to 8 greyhounds of their own, have fostered some, and have transported over 125 greyhounds to Canada for NCGL.
