How Northcoast Greyhounds functions

CONTRIBUTION LIST - Where'd your money go?

Visa MasterCard 


I've been offering Marta Howell’s jewelry for 20 years, so you may recognize her style and materials.
This time, her collection of RINGS is being offered as a FUN-Draiser for
Greyt Love Retirement Facility,
partnered with James River Greyhound Adoption for placement in Central Virginia.
Together, they’re already helping to move greyhounds from Florida racetracks! Fifteen greyhounds were recently hauled from Pensacola to the facility on December 27th where they were welcomed by a crowd and prepared for new homes. Sixteen more are scheduled to arrive on January 20th. The ring you purchase will help one more greyhound get on that Greyt Love Bus!

* Size matters! And it’s best judged by the size of the greyhound: Brynn is always 5/8” across, regardless of how large or small the ring may appear in the photograph.
* Spiny Oyster is more costly than abalone or Mother of Pearl, and even Spiny Oyster’s value is decided by its depth of color, purple being the more rare.
* All the rings are adjustable, like this:
