WANTED Foster Homes
NORTHWEST CANADIAN GREYHOUND LEAGUE
Greyhounds that come straight off the track need to learn how to behave in a house. They need to learn all about things like; linoleum, carpet, stairs, cats, little dogs, windows, mirrors and much more. Foster families take a Greyhound into their home and spend time teaching it how to be a wonderful house dog. They then have to be strong of heart and give the Greyhound up when it’s ready for adoption. Failing at fostering simply means falling in love with your foster and wanting to keep it. If you fail too often you won’t have room to foster anymore Greyhounds and that is what we consider a loss, but a happy loss!

Do you own or are you fostering a male Greyhound that likes to mark everything in sight? We have just the right training tool for you and they are being custom made by one of NCGL’s volunteers. Five Dollars ($5.00) from each sale will be donated to NCGL.
Belly Bands have proven over and over that marking ends promptly after a few wearing’s. How long to have your dog wear a belly band and when to stop using? That is a personal decision, but if the dog/foster stays dry overnight while wearing one, use is usually discontinued.
For further information or to order, contact Jean at firstname.lastname@example.org

This Bill is a proposal to the Parliament of Canada to substantially raise the federal donation tax credit for donations to registered Canadian charities, thereby freeing up more dollars for donations. Making it easier for small donors to become larger donors, small recipients (such as NCGL) to become larger recipients and for those people who do not currently donate, to start. For further information on this proposal go to www.tedfalk.ca

Date: Saturday, July 29th, 2017
Time: 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Place: Templeton Field (near Vancouver Airport in Richmond)
Direction: Take Grant McConachie Way toward the airport, turn left at Templeton Street, turn left again on Miller Road, first left for parking, fenced field is across the street.
The field is completely fenced and safe for the dogs to run and play off leash. However, for the safety of the dogs and owners’ peace of mind, we strongly recommend that you bring muzzles. Once the dogs have been introduced and we observe their interaction it may be okay to let them play without them. And don’t forget poo bags as there is no dispenser at the field.
