UPDATE: SUNDAY, May 18:  Spring Bath-a-Thon Fundraiser!  

It was a GREYT day for a bath!

Over 30 doggies came out to support our Annual Springtime Bath-a-Thon Fundraiser on Sunday, May 18!  

SCG raised just shy of $1,000 in one day to help our cause and to continue to be able to pay for necessary medical and transition costs for each hound that is brought into our program!  


Thank you to the following people who volunteered that day to make the day so special:

Kim and Jim Gilmore, Korryn Mozisek, Alex Kurjakovic, Danielle Orbash, Sonia Wellington, Heather and Joe Carmello, Sarah and Dan Wilson, Katy and Chris Zorich, Beth Altman, Emily Huffman, Dave Kiefer, Megan Hunt, Marinda Stravetsky



Here are SCG vols, Dave Kiefer and Megan Hunt with the current available hounds.
