Why Sunburst?

Rich and Jerrie Ingersoll, co-founders of The Greyhound Alliance, named this unprecedented effort to home Panhandle greyhounds for the spirit of one of their true friends, Nicklaus. "Nicklaus, our first greyhound, was our inspiration to help as many greyhounds as possible find forever homes. He truly brought a 'burst of sunlight' into our lives that continues to shine through The Sunburst Project." Rich and Jerrie

Mission Accomplished

Sunburst Project
2nd Anniversary Mission Accomplished

Sunburst's 2nd Anniversary month gets even better!

 The first ever haul to the Southwest rolled out. 
32 hounds left directly from the Pensacola track yesterday 
with hounds for Texas, Arizona, and Southern California! 

It's appropriate that Arizona based Beading Diva's  
May Fundraiser for The Greyhound Alliance 
enabled us to pay more than $2,000 in haul fees 
to help move these gentle greyhounds closer to a HOME! 

Thank you to
The Beading Diva's 
our new southwestern groups!

to all our adoption partners, volunteers, 
The Sunburst Team, 
and everyone who has supported our 
Sunburst dream and mission.

May was a very good month. 
101 pups left Sunburst. 

But June broke all the records. 
111 greyhounds went through the Sunburst Kennel 
to find forever homes and hearts! 

Thanks to everyone and all Sunburst Partners, 
The Greyhound Alliance and GPA Emerald Coast,
