Six years ago, Keystone Greyhounds made a commitment to increase the number of senior dog adoptions, greyhounds 8 years old and older, to ten percent of our total adoptions. That seemed to be a lofty goal. The good news is we have been successful! Since 2004, we adopted over 820 hounds, of which 150+ were seniors. They are all now Keystone Hounds, living the Good Life they all deserve!

We have also committed Keystone to take from our dog providers greyhounds that are not “perfect”. This includes dogs with broken legs, seizures or other physical problem which make them hard to adopt. This past year 11 of these dogs have become Keystone Hounds. We believe they all deserve a chance and are committed to continue to help these greyhounds find a forever home through Keystone Greyhounds. The reality is that each senior and ‘special’ adoptions costs Keystone, on average, $500.00 or more to place. This raffle will help us continue our efforts.

Your participation in this raffle will allow us to continue to offer these greyhounds a chance at a well deserved forever-home. You can obtain additional raffle tickets by calling 717 234-1860 or e-mailing Tickets can also be printed by clicking here: Ticket Form 2014
