For December 2012, Beading Divas to the Rescue is proud to support:
Going Home, a project of the Greyhound Protection League.
Going Home means that when the greyhounds stop racing, they have the opportunity to safely leave Tucson Greyhound Park and go to suitable adoption groups.

Greyhound Protection League covers the costs for safe transport as well as veterinary services when required, flea & tick products, and food until the dogs reach adoption groups. Dozens of lucky greyhounds are on their way home but many more are waiting…
Kennel operators or dog owners who want Going Home to help pet out Tucson dogs, contact GPL/Going Home.
