Volunteering

Volunteers are what makes everything we do possible. Without the commitment and sacrifice of the many people involved in supporting GEM, none of our efforts would have succeeded. You can help out in many ways: fostering, helping at a meet ‘n greet, going on a GUR, etc. Read below to see the many ways your help is needed.

If you would like to volunteer please fill out our Volunteer Application, or contact one of the coordinators listed below

Volunteer Coordinator, Brooke Stumpf.

GEM’s Events Calendar Coordinator, Dave Campbell. Hang out with other greyhound friends and family. Talk to prospective adopters about greyhounds and their personality. Show off your hound! If you would like to see some pictures from our recent events, click the Event Photo’s Link to the left.

GEM’s Foster Coordinator Helen Davanzo. Fostering can be one of the best and most rewarding experiences you will ever have. To watch a greyhound learn about life outside the racing kennel, explore all of the new surroundings and blossom into a wonderful pet is something you must experience yourself to really appreciate. Those first weeks of fostering are extremely special as a fragile personality emerges, and that once cautious or shy dog becomes a robust, happy, well adjusted pet who relishes life with all it’s wonders.

Financial Help is always appreciated! If you would like to make a financial donation, contact GEM’s Treasurer, Dan Pielach.

GEM has certain items that are always needed. To view GEM’s “Wish List” for a list of other needs and contacts, please click here!

If you have an item you would like to donate for one of GEM’s E-Bay Auctions, please contact Kathy Darfler.

Fundraiser Donations are always appreciated! Please contact Dan Pielach to donate items for fundraisers.

Are you able to transport dogs to the vet, a meet & greet or to their forever home? Maybe getting involved in a GUR (greyhound underground railroad) run is for you. Contact Jim Simmons for more information or to volunteer.
