ADOPTION FEE INCREASE
From Cynthia Branigan
As of June 1, 2016, we will, by necessity, raise our adoption fee to $300 for both new and repeat adopters. As before, new adopters will send $15 with their application, and we'll send them a copy of the book "Adopting the Racing Greyhound" to read in advance. On adoption day, new adopters will owe the balance of $285; and repeat adopters, $300. Applications submitted before June 1st will reflect our previous adoption fee of $275.
I hope it's not a secret--is it?--that Make Peace loses money on every adoption. Even after the fee hike, we'll still lose money; but at least we'll narrow the gap. Bear in mind that when an incoming Greyhound has a medical condition, our expenses soar.

ROGER MEETS HIS MATCH
Roger Penske (left), son of the late, great, Lassinagh Silky and prolific sire Flying Penske, goes nose to toes with his Mini Me. This paper mache statue, made by Vermont artist Terri Malloy, is the spittin' image of Roger. And why not? He was the model! The piece was created and donated to commemorate Make Peace With Animals' 25th Annual Homecoming. Luckily for Roger, his adopter had the winning bid at the silent auction.
