We are happy to announce Greyhound Friends for Life’s
Sanctuary Sponsor program has been renamed B.E.S.T.,
the Barbara Eineichner Sighthound Trust program.
Barbara was devoted to providing foster care to older and
special-needs greyhounds and is the inspiration for this
Once they get into the rescue system, most greyhounds find
a wonderful “forever” home with new adoptive
parents. Others, however, may require special help and sanctuary
from Greyhound Friends for Life’s (GFFL) B.E.S.T.
GFFL makes a life-time commitment to all greyhounds that
come into our organization. GFFL provides care for returned
greyhounds as well as those from other situations where
our intervention is needed. Unfortunately, some dogs are
not adoptable because of advanced age or serious medical
problems. Although the long-term foster dogs live in a home
environment with their foster parents, expenses are paid
by GFFL. We currently have 11 greyhounds in the program
with an average annual cost of $500 per dog. Last year alone,
GFFL covered over $5000 in expenses for our long-term foster
dogs. As the expenses mount year after year, we find that
we need additional financial help.
How can you help? Sign up to sponsor a long-term foster
greyhound! The B.E.S.T. program is an opportunity for GFFL
friends who have room in their hearts, but not in their
homes, to make a tremendous difference through sponsorship.

a payment plan, and mail the form and your check to the

PayPal account, complete the sponsor

ensuring that every GFFL greyhound is guaranteed a home
– for life.
