Greyhound Friends in the red nearly $200,000.

Blog about Greyhound Friends

Learn more about the issues that animal rescue law enforcement and state agencies uncovered about the greyhound adoption group Greyhound Friends in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. Greyhound Friends is closed but is trying to obtain a new kennel license, despite recent reports that they neglected sick and injured dogs.

Greyhound Friends in the red nearly $200,000.

Stephen Bassignani

Nearly two years before the animal care troubles there became public, Greyhound Friends was already in the red for $295,382.

This pattern continued in 2016, with the charity spending $625,159 on expenses, despite bringing in $427,983

It is unclear why the Board of Directors would continue outspending revenues at such an alarming rate. One of the main role's of a Board of Directors is to ensure the financial health of a charity. Despite the tremendous losses in 2015, in the following year Greyhound Friends paid:

  • $44,700 in a single year on public relations
  • $43,130 to a greyhound racing breeder, who was their highest paid consultant that year
  • $17,712 in educational films, made by a neighbor of the charity's founder

It is worrisome that this organization is seeking to reopen, despite the animal neglect uncovered there and the seeming financial instability.
