The Southeastern Greyhound Club's (SEGC's) by-laws declare that our purpose is two-fold: to provide Greyhound owners with a variety of ways to have fun with their Greyhounds, and to promote the breed by spreading the word about what wonderful pets Greyhounds make. Our members take these purposes quite seriously, and find more ways to fulfill both each year.
SEGA is a 100% volunteer operated organization with no paid staff or significant sponsor. All of your donations in time and money go straight to helping the Greyhounds and our mission.
We currently have 14 Greyhounds available for adoption. It costs approximately $70 dollars per week to feed and care for each dog in our kennel, which does not include the spay/neuter and dental vet expenses spent on each hound as soon as they enter our program. When you sponsor one of our adoptable Greyhounds, your donation helps that hound while it waits for a forever home. SEGA will recognize your support by listing your name with the Greyhound — even after it is adopted!
In 2015 SEGA has continued our mission to find loving, permanent homes for former racing Greyhounds or any Greyhound in need. In order to place these Greyhounds in a home we must provide shelter, food and medical care for every hound. Even at a heavily discounted rate, our annual boarding costs average $36,500. This year we have treated 3 Greyhounds who came into our program heartworm positive. Not only do these hounds have to wait several months before they can be adopted, but their pre-adoption medical bills are 3 to 4 times that of the average SEGA Greyhound. We had a Greyhound with post-surgery complications that required emergency medical care as well as extended care in the local kennel. His bills were over $3,700, but he pulled through and was adopted into a great SEGA home. We are currently rehabilitating a Greyhound who came to us with a fractured hock.
The generosity of our supporters (you) allows SEGA to help a Greyhound with special needs or take in a senior Greyhound, even if the cost is significant. I am glad we are able to say "yes" when these situations occur. Your donations allow SEGA to keep our adoption fee at an affordable level, allowing more people the option to adopt a Greyhound.
