Dear Friends and Adopters: As many of you know by now, Monica’s Heart will cease adoptions at the end of 2020. It has been a wonderful 24 years working with you and with these beautiful, elegant creatures. We will still take in dogs that need to be returned, and will be on hand if you have questions or concerns.


We have found homes for almost 1,700 dogs, and most foster folks will agree that we have fallen in love with your furkids before introducing them to you. There has been success and heartache, laughter and tears, hours and hours of work – meeting haulers in the middle of the night, and then bathing them before bringing them home, taking them to the vet for various services, changing bandages and giving meds, and meeting to move dogs on to other foster homes. There has also been tears over letting them go when we would have liked to keep another dog, but adopting them out when the right home came along.


Thanks to everyone who has been a part of the Monica’s Heart organization – board members, foster people, volunteers, meet and greet organizers, fundraisers. We are also deeply thankful for the veterinarians that worked with us over the years. We sincerely appreciate all of your efforts on behalf of our successes. Thanks, too, to the owners/trainers who have enabled us to find homes for their retired racers and brood mamas. I believe that Monica Joyce would be very proud of what we have accomplished in her name.


Please do not hesitate to contact us, now or in the future, should you have any questions or concerns about your adopted greyhound or in regards to returning one of our adopted dogs that you can no longer care for. We will be on hand for as long as is needed for all of our adopted dogs.
